comment Why is death a vital piece of God's plan in LDS theology?
@Anonymous This might be better its own question, but real short version is: you're right. It's kind of the reverse of most of Christianity. The LDS church believes doctrine to be living, that is, continuing to be revealed. The Book of Mormon is the keystone of this belief (not the cornerstone, who is Christ). If the Book of Mormon is false, the entire LDS Church goes down with it. That's kind of what I was getting at. It's a faith thing more than scholarly thing.

@Anonymous Thank you. 2 Timothy 3:16-17: "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."

@Anonymous Of course. That's what makes LDS theology so interesting. The doctrine itself is the wall against which the Book of Mormon has to make its stand. On that thought, I'd be interested to see Biblical passages which help to answer this question, so that it can apply to a more general Christian audience.

@Anonymous -- That's fitting, though, since he is asking this whole question in the context of LDS theology.

Added original quote, as correctly as I could find online.

What exactly is your question? Just if you understand CS Lewis correctly on the matter?

comment What does the LDS church teach about what men and women did or do in the pre-existence?
@fredsbend Okay, I've revised my answer. I'm not really sure what reincarnation has to do with this, but I made an attempt to address that question anyway. You might have to clarify if I assumed your question wrongly, though.

comment How do Christians in support of gay marriage interpret anti-gay Bible verses?
"Nothing at all to say about female homosexual relationships" -- except for this part: "or practice homosexuality"...

@Steve Yes, but through this question I'm seeking clarification about the Father's location while Jesus is on earth and praying to Him, if Jesus and God are actually one.
