  1. The past few weeks as I drove to work I thought of several questions I don't have the answers to. Hopefully you can help me sort out the answers. 1. If one of the primary purposes of the Millenium is Temple Work, but all of those who are worthy of the Telestial and Celestial kingdoms are resurrected and alive during the millennium, then can't they all do their own work? I understand temple worthy members could still act as temple workers, just not as proxies. 2. Also, does this mean that if temple work during the millennium is done by proxy only for those who can't do it themselves (Terrestrial), then if the Telestial person accepts the covenants, will they be immediately resurrected and become alive in the millennium, or do they still have to wait until the end, at which point they are Telestial anymore? This doesn't seem to make sense. 3. If someone is not resurrected during the early part of the millennium because they are 'Telestial', then why do their temple work at all? Unless they repented and become temple worthy (a.k.a. Celestial) then they couldn't make the covenants anyway, correct? It only makes sense if people could go from Telestial to Celestial during the millennium. 4. If all children under the age of 8 years old are considered celestial, then they would be resurrected at the beginning of the millennium, but based upon the statistics I've seen on infant mortality, this would likely result in tens of billions of children over the history of the earth that would be resurrected. Not all of them, or possibly even most of them, will have parents who are resurrected to raise them at the beginning of the millennium. How are these children going to be raised, by all of the Celestial and Telestial parents who are alive at that time? 5. Will spouses grow old and 'twinkle' at the same time to become young again? If not, I guess it would be strange to have a 20 year old woman married to an 80 year old man until he 'twinkled' too. 6. What happens if there is an accident and someone dies? Or can't people die or drown, or something similar? Thanks, I've been thinking about these questions for weeks and can't think of answers to satisfy them that I've ever heard.
  2. Dear Bros/Sis's Are you working on Jacob 5-6? I find these scriptures quite confusing. In particular in Jacob 4, Jacob sets up the allegory by saying "16 But behold, according to the scriptures, this stone [The Savior] shall become the great, and the last, and the only sure foundation, upon which the Jews can build. 17 And now, my beloved, how is it possible that these, after having rejected the sure foundation, can ever build upon it, that it may become the head of their corner?" I am not sure that Jacob 5-6 answers this question. As far as I can tell some of the Jews do accept the Savior, namely 1. Some of the Jews who travel to North America and become Nephites/Lamonites 2. Some of the Jews who are scattered become Christians. As a percentage of the Jews, groups 1 and 2, seem rather small. Do other Jews accept the Savior after they regroup in Jerusalem when the Jews are gathered just before the Millenium? During the Millenium? Does anyone have any scriptural or doctrinal references that might shed some light on this? Thanks!
  3. Hey all! I'm writing a book about the second coming of Jesus Christ, and I have a section in each chapter about rumors vs. doctrine about the second coming--kind of like a 2nd coming Snopes Anyway, what are some rumors you've heard about anything to do with the second coming? (the mark of the beast, gathering to zion, lost tribes of Israel--anything, really)
  4. I just finished teaching a lesson in Gospel Priniciples class (formerly Gospel Essentials). We use the Gospel Principles manual as our text and in chapters 44 and 45 there are unreferenced paragraphs that seem to suggest that terrestrial and celestial beings will exist on the earth together. Quote 1 (p. 260) "After the resurrection of those who will inherit celestial glory, another group will be resurrected: those who will receive a terrestrial glory. When all these people have been resurrected, the First Resurrection will be completed." Quote 2 (p. 263) "Because of the destruction of the wicked at the Savior’s Second Coming, only righteous people will live on the earth at the beginning of the Millennium. They will be those who have lived virtuous and honest lives. These people will inherit either the terrestrial or celestial kingdom." (bold added) I always thought the first resurrection was only for those eligible for celestial glory (those who are eligible if they continue faithful through the millennium). As a result of trying to teach this class, I have a bunch of questions for the erudite among you. Question 1 : Will both celestial and terrestrial human beings coexist during the millennium? Question 2: If so, where does this doctrine come from (references)? Question 3: Does this imply that some assignment of kingdom will occur BEFORE the final judgment? Question 4: Am I the only one that thinks that, if both celestial and terrestrial beings coexist, the terrestrial beings would feel pretty lousy (underclass) hanging with the celestials (I'm truly not trying to be too flippant here)?
  5. I have a question about sealings. I know that for you to do proxy sealings today in the temple the couple must be married legally on this earth. How do sealings work in the millennium? For a single righteous woman who is dead, how does she get sealed to a man during that time if she was never legally married on earth? Can she have someone alive during the millennium get married for her and then she can be sealed? What about a woman who was sealed to a man her whole life but really wanted to be sealed to another but they never got the chance to get married in this life. Would she be able to get married by proxy and then sealed to that other man during the millennium and then choose between the two men she was sealed too?
