Say we agree that Mormonism is about progress and progression. A couple of questions might follow.
1. Why assume that progress is singular rather than plural? Why progression rather than progressions?
2. Why assume that progressions are linear? Is the way straight or just strait?
3. Why assume that progressions are additive rather than subtractive?
4. Why assume that different vectors of mutually desirable progression are compatible? What if progressions are inherently messy (cf., the Fall)?
5. Is a static model of perfection (never deviating, never failing, never erring) compatible with progressions?
6. Are any kinds of progression possible without a shadow of loss, responsibility (possibly culpability), and consumption?
7. What would it mean to think about “sin” in relation to progressions (plural) rather than perfection (singular)?
