We will have "new" bodies, which, not being made of earthly "flesh and blood", will be incorruptible. That is, they will not be subject to disease and deterioration, as mortal bodies are. Thus they cannot die—as these bodies are immortal, they cannot be separated from our spirit, because death is the only thing that can separate body and spirit. All this is ...

I suppose this is not what you want to hear, but: The separation of spirit and body is death. That means immortality implies that spirit and body will not be separated again. Resurrection makes us immortal. This is the logic I would follow: Resurrection -> body immortal -> spirit & body inseparable Instead of what seems to be your logic: Resurrection ...

First of all, God is the one who decides which prayers he answers, not us. I take it for granted that he hears all prayers, and it would be presumptuous to say prayers addressed to X go unheard.

That is indeed the reason. They sought and received guidance and instruction from the Saint Paul School of Theology and one of the first things to be changed was the name of the church (in 2001).

This question is premised on a faulty understanding of both Mormonism and Christianity. The clear implication of the way it was asked is that few other churches believe what the Scriptures say. Such is not the case. The vast majority of Christian traditions hold very strongly that these Scriptures have been, are being, or will be fulfilled. Considerable ...

From Wikipedia, "The Book of Enoch": The first English translation of the Bodleian/Ethiopic manuscript was published in 1821 by Richard Laurence, titled The Book of Enoch, the prophet: an apocryphal production, supposed to have been lost for ages; but discovered at the close of the last century in Abyssinia; now first translated from an Ethiopic ...
