It seems to me that a good deal of apologetic for the church essentially boil down to the old phrase "that was then this is now". When I've had talks with Mormons about things like blood atonement or Blacks and the priesthood the answer is usually that we have more knowledge now or that we should trust contemporary prophets rather than older ones. As if we should pretend like the past never happened and that everything is all right now. But this raises the question, How can an eternal God, with eternal laws and eternal truths change? The rebuttal is that God didn't change but the way he does things on Earth did. Am I the only one who sees that as God changing?
