  1. I am confused by other teachings. The Plan of Salvation https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/bc/content/ldsorg/content/english/manual/missionary/pdf/36950_the-plan-of-salvation-eng.pdf Page 12 - Death will not change your personality or your desire for good or evil. If you choose to follow Christ during your life on earth, you will be at peace in the spirit world and will rest from your cares. Those who choose not to follow Jesus Christ and do not repent will be unhappy. Page 14 Terrestrial kingdom - People who refuse to accept the gospel of Jesus Christ but wh
  2. Mosiah 3:19 says "For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of Adam, and will be, forever and ever, unless he yields to the enticings of the Holy Spirit, and putteth off the natural man and becometh a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and becometh as a child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father". The Plan of Salvation guide defines the terrestrial and telestial inhabitants. Terrestrial kingdom - Peop
  3. Does this mean you don't believe the royal priesthood of believers (1 Peter 2:5,9) includes women?
  4. I suppose I have a hard time understanding what you meant by saying earlier "All the perfected beings who are rightly called gods, being, like the Savior, possessed of "the fullness of the Godhead bodily," are ONE, just as the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost are one" What is the difference in Adam and Eve already being gods in their pre-mortal state and them becoming gods (Gods in Alma 12:31) after eating the forbidden fruit? And why was Moses made as God to Pharaoh when he was already a god?
  5. It sounds then that this is not the Divine Council that you mentioned earlier, where the spirit children of God were present.
  6. Who are these perfected beings (the gods) who possessed the fullness of the Godhead at this Divine Council, and what do you mean by perfected?
  7. Do you have church teachings instead of Wikipedia to support the idea Psalm 82 is that council?
  8. I don't know which God you refer to - is Heavenly Father or Jesus a god?
  9. 1 - God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods. 2 - How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah. 6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. 7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes. To me, it looks like the judges of verse 2 are the gods of verse 6.
  10. 2 Nephi 1:8 says "And behold, it is wisdom that this land should be kept as yet from the knowledge of other nations; for behold, many nations would overrun the land, that there would be no place for an inheritance". How small of an area is *this land* that there was a concern of there not being enough space for their inheritance when many nations learned of its location? Gale
  11. I read this in a General Conference talk. I am grateful for the testimony of our prophet, President Gordon B. Hinckley. On behalf of all members throughout the world, I express gratitude that he chose to follow the inspiration of the Lord and asked us to read the Book of Mormon. We have been abundantly blessed by his inspired counsel. Do we have a record of other Presidents before Gordon Hinckley following the inspiration of the Lord and asking members to read the Book of Mormon? Gale
  12. Mosiah 26:24-27 says, "For behold, in my name are they called; and if they know me they shall come forth, and shall have a place eternally at my right hand. And it shall come to pass that when the second trump shall sound then shall they that never knew me come forth and shall stand before me. And then shall they know that I am the Lord their God, that I am their Redeemer; but they would not be redeemed. And then I will confess unto them that I never knew them; and they shall depart into everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels. Where is the place that is
  13. This reminds me of the little book "How Good is Good Enough?"
  14. I have heard reports of church services being videotaped. So it would be contrary to Communist China practice to allow a temple to be built without some form of surveillance (what happens inside or who goes in and out). That's why we don't have an accurate count of how many Christians there are in China because many are in non-monitored 'underground' churches so to speak. Talk of a Second Coming when Jesus will establish His kingdom is anathema to the Chinese government.
