To which I would have responded, "I'm certain that most of us cannot count on it conforming to our expectations, but for some of us it may broadly conform to some of our expectations, at least. The devil will be in the details, however."
My father was a self-described agnostic, and his outlook was that he hoped there was a god, and an afterlife, but that was far as he could go. On the other hand, I have a deep conviction that there is a God and an afterlife, and that in the end, no matter what we have done in this life (aside from sons of perdition), there will be a glorious end that we cannot now adequately comprehend.
But what about the intermediate place between death and our eventual mansion, the place called the Spirit World? What do you believe will be going on there?
If you utterly reject the idea of an afterlife, I guess you don't have a dog in this hunt, but perhaps you can nevertheless speculate as to how you might like it to be, if it turned out you were wrong.
I am currently a LDS member and I as curious as to the comparison of what other Christian faith believes happens to us when we die? From my understanding of being in the church. We go to the spirit world where we then continue to learn and have the chance to accept Christ. We rest there until the 2nd resurrection of Christ coming. So basically there is no going straight hell or heaven that you go to immediately after death as the bible perceives. Can someone who has all the quotes in the bible quote why other Christians believe different from us.
Also calling all very knowledgeable LDS members can you elaborate on baptism for the dead. Verse from scriptures and why etc. The 3 kingdoms that you go into.
For FHE tonight, as somewhat of a wry riff on events of the last 48 hours, I am watching BYUTV's Relative Race. Kinda fun. Anyone else watched it? If so, whadya think?
My first week in the ward, I also noticed mention of an app that allows you to see who you're related to in the ward.
I'm seeking someone to have a PM conversation with about experiences/advise about converting against your family's wishes.
Thanks in advance
In the next life, the Judgement is all about our righteous lives -- good vs evil.
I already know that our personalities will be the same when we get there == the rebellious will still be rebellious, the stubborn, the charming, charismatic, etc.
Let's talk about Paradise, and the Celestial Kingdom. We are commanded to love everybody, but that does that mean that we will be friends with everyone. How will our culture affect us in the afterlife -- the people that we will hang out with. Will the loner still be a loner?
Does being "perfect" mean that we will ALL have a terrific sense of humor? Or those who "don't get it" will still not get it. At what point does perfect mean homogeneous, or will we still avoid certain individuals and personality types, etc.
