Jesus Does Not Sit on an Unreachable Pedestal

One of the things I love MOST about "pure Mormonism" is that it actually doesn't put Jesus on an unreachable pedestal.

Seriously, if you think about it, the whole idea that we should strive to be Christ-like and that our ultimate ideal is to become like God really destroys the conceptual "gulf of separation" that exists in the rest of Christianity - and even in most of the rest of religion at large. When I look at "having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof", it is exactly this idea (clinging to an unreachable, unattainable God) that I see as its center.
