And this one:
The saving principle of aTemple Sealing is so powerful that many prophets have used little qualifying language in their sweeping promises. For example, Brigham Young said, “I care not where those children go, they are bound up to their parents by an everlasting tie, and no power of earth or hell can separate them from their parents in eternity; they will return again to the fountain from whence they sprang” (Discourses of Brigham Young, 208).
It appears that the sealing power of righteous parents literally has the ability to intercede on behalf of wayward children, either in this life or the next. For me, this is just another wonderful example of the power of the Atonement and mercy of our Savior.
For me I take great comfort in this little-understood doctrine. There is real power, beyond our own capacity to fully comprehend, offered by the Atonement of Jesus Christ, as it is manifested in the covenants and ordinances of a Temple Sealing.
What are your thoughts on how this applies to each of us through the sealing of Adam and Eve, our first parents?
Also, is this a case where love, mercy and grace trumps the free agency of a wayward child?
