Can you touch a spirit being?
Upcountry posted a topic in LDS Gospel DiscussionHI, I am an LDS scientist. Can you touch a spirit being? I joined looking for opinions on this topic I think not for two reasons: First in John 3 talking to Nicodemus: "the wind bloweth where it listeth and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the spirit. Second, Jesus in talking to Thomas after the resurrection, invited Thomas to thrust his hands into His wounds as if to confirm that He was not just a spirit but a resurrected being. We are telepathic beings - what else is a silent prayer? Perhaps some of the sensation of touching spirits is more in the mind than actual touch. But I doubt a spirit could break your finger for example. Comments? TOG I am new here. email is [moderator removed]
