Regarding LDS believing that they will have as much glory as the Father... Some more references.
I might quibble a bit with altersteves quote "We will never have as much glory as Heavenly Father" but only in the sense that God has promised us a fullness of His blessings. What we don't preach, teach or believe is that we would ever surpass God the Father in glory. I seriously doubt we would ever even "catch up" in any sense. We certainly don't believe we will surpass God in glory.
This would be impossible no matter how exalted we become through Christ's atonement. Because the very act of our glorification glorifies the Father further.
From the very authoratative Doctrine and Covenants of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints...
D&C 132:63 "...for they [wives] are given unto him to amultiply
and replenish the earth, according to my commandment, and to fulfil the promise which was given by my Father before the foundation of the world, and for their exaltation in the eternal worlds, that they may bear the souls of men; for herein is the work of my Father continued, that he may be bglorified
We glorify God by accepting the atonement of Christ adn returning to our Father in Heaven.
Moses 1:39 "For behold, this is my work and my glory—to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man."
There is authoratative reference from our scriptures that our exaltation glorifies the Father. So as we progress and obtain what He has, or become joint heirs with Christ, he continues to be increased. This is of course as natural as any parent glorying in their own children growing into adulthood.
Quite simple as we increase we increase the Father's glory. Therefore our exaltation is His further glory. We will therefore never surpass our Father in Heaven no matter how much of His attributes we gain.
The Bible supports this concept of the Father being glorified in His children. As we read in John 17 the Son glorified the Father through our atonement. We glorify God by accepting the atonement and becoming one with God.
1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy aSon
, that thy Son also may bglorify
2 As thou hast given him apower
over all flesh, that he should give beternal
life to as many as thou hast cgiven
3 And this is alife beternal
, that they might cknow
thee the only true dGod
, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast esent
4 I have aglorified
thee on the earth: I have bfinished
the work which thou gavest me to do.
5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the aglory
which I had with thee bbefore
the world was.
6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me aout
of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.
7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast agiven
me are of thee.
8 For I have given unto them the awords
which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I bcame
out from thee, and they have cbelieved
that thou didst send me.
9 I apray
for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which bthou
hast given me; for they are thine.
10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the aworld
, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be bone
, as we are.
