Mormon Theology – Monotheism or Henotheism?

Seeing as you have no comments, I would like to chime in.

We believe that they are one in spirit and purpose, not physical being.

As for the henotheism, that is somewhat of a deviant belief. It could be true, but we don't know and it isn't important. The point of saying "There is one God" is to avoid any comparisons to the pagan religions that were practiced around the world at that time, who probably shifted around deities like trading cards. We only know of one God, so far.

Interesting, so "There is one God" means “There are many gods but we don’t want to talk about that right now, maybe in a few millenia.”

Where may I find in Mormon scripture that "There is one God" did not refer to monotheism but to avoiding any comparisons to the paganism?
