The problem with this kind of question is that, at least within the context of Mormon Doctrine, there has never exactly been an authoritative treatise on any sort of relation to these concepts in our physical realm. I can, however, present the various theories laid forth by various 'philosophers,' so to speak, within Mormonism. An interesting book I came ...

Reincarnation is not an orthodox Christian idea. Resurrection is.1 The most long standing articulation of this belief among Christians can be found in the Nicene Creed: I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Nicene Christians (includes all mainstream traditions, excludes some sects) believe that we live once, die ...

There is actually very little LDS doctrine on the subject of the specific details of how Exaltation will work. (Most of the doctrine is devoted to the weightier matter of how to attain it in the first place.) But it is explicitly said that it will be a life of the same kind that God enjoys, so answers can be inferred by examining LDS cosmology on the ...

Becoming an eternal family requires living the gospel of Jesus Christ, which includes the following: Developing faith in Jesus Christ. Repenting. Being baptized and receiving the Holy Ghost. Enduring to the end. "Enduring to the End" includes temple ordinances, such as the sealing (husband and wife or child to parents), and implies that one would be ...

The parable of the rich man and Lazarus told by Jesus is probably the best Scriptural reference to afterlife in the Bible. All scripture is quoted from the King James translation. Luke 16:19 through 31 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named ...

In Luke 16, we have the parable of the unjust house manager. In verse 9, Jesus says, "I tell you, use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings." This passage alludes to the idea that since we will gain friends here on earth who later invite us into their eternal dwellings, we should ...

God knew you, as he knew Jeremiah, long before you were born or even conceived. He thought about you and planned for you. When you feel discouraged or inadequate, remember that God has always thought of you as valuable and that he has a purpose in mind for you. Jeremiah was "appointed" by God as his "Prophet to the nations." God has a purpose for each ...

The plan was put forth by Elohim and when it was understood that a Redeemer was needed to effect the plan it was then that his Beloved and First born Son responded, "Here am I, send me"... There never was an option. "Come, Know the Lord Jesus" McConkie, General Conference, April 1977

All people on Earth are spiritual sons and daughters of God, who is called Heavenly Father for this reason. So, all those on this Earth who "attain godhood" will be reunited with Him in one giant happy eternal family. This includes a couple and their earthly children. At this point, it becomes more speculation on my part. There may be references for what ...

According to scripture. Yes. There are 2 minds at work in you. You may not realise it, but the scripture tells us in 1 Thes 5:23 that we are 3 part beings. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The part that got born again ...

There is Biblical evidence that, at least in certain circumstances, people in Heaven can indeed see what is happening on Earth. Perhaps the most clear example is from Revelation 19:1-3: After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting: ‘Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, for ...

I really appreciate all the comments above on this subject. There are only 2 answers - either Ananias/Sapphira were believers, or they were non-believers. If there were believers, then even though they suffered sudden death, they were saved. If they were non-believers, they were not saved. Personally, I know of many sincere christians who lied, who failed ...
