    Are we or anyone sure this says or means that the earth is seven thousand years old. It is quoting a period in my mind a set of years.

    Q. What are we to understand by the book which John saw, which was sealed on the back with seven seals? A. We are to understand that it contains the revealed will, mysteries, and the works of God; the hidden things of his economy concerning this earth during the seven thousand years of its continuance, or its temporal existence. (Doctrine and Covenants 77:6)

    Yes I can what you are saying. No matter what comes after is still very real however.

    I always thought that the real issue was rejecting the plan of salvation and not getting a body was due to that. Are you saying some rejected the Plan of Salvation because they did not want a body?.

    Yes I respect your outlook.

    SO when the wicked do evil there is no cost because that is what they wanted? How could they chose on the basis of not having had a body.

    (what if the cost is the sucess of God's chosen purpose?) We know from scriptures that God does not work against himself. (How can you tell doing what is right will never interfere with God's purpose if you can't say what right actually means in this case?) I do not know what is always right but Heaven follows the plan of Salvation so there must be rights according to that in Heaven). (If you mean what is right is anything that fulfills God's Purpose, then you need to explain what actual costs are attached to it.) Well an easy one is that about a third of pre-exsiting spirits will not be getting a body. I never said I want it to become an article of faith I said it is one for me as a person.

    Without revelation there would have been no pain of rejecting it this answers both your questions. Again I feel Heaven did right by warning. After all this I do not want Heaven to change what was done. But I am surprised by the posts I am getting (not just your) DO people really want to think that Heaven is harmless???

    I imagine that for each case of Heavenly action there is Heavenly agreement on some level. You talk about Justice and Mercy that I know is complicated in the least. Gods Purposes, if God instruct an Angel to do something then maybe that becomes what is right. Sorry I can not give you more info about what is right in Heaven.

    I am sad you have missed the point, I did not say or intend to say this was caused by Heaven. Heaven did right, the warning ignored caused pain ( he told me about that pain). We humans hesitate and weigh things up and then do no act. Heaven must act on what is right no matter what comes after.

    Look how about a friend story (no really). I had a friend who had done much for the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. He got a revelation in the Temple not to do something ( the thing in of itself was not wrong to do). But even though this was the strongest revelation he ever had he went against it. He then was harmed by doing what he was told not to do and was also went some crazy over going against the warning. We as humans would maybe hold back and say well it is the right thing to warn but what about possible harm. No Games here I am Pro God, Gospel etc... Heaven did the right thing for my friend but there are always costs.

    The point is that we do not always see God doing right in terms of cost. Costs are what make it all real.

    Yes I have done that, as you grow old you get the feeling that will no longer work.

    God is a Heavenly being and he ministers to the earth.
