@Anonymous Don't fall for it -- That's not a Mormon site!

comment According to the LDS church, why was Jesus Christ born when he was born?
@JustinY If your question is truly geared toward the LDS perspective, the term "meridian of time" is more than acceptable, since the term was coined in the Book of Moses.

These are interesting facts and research, props for doing it. But I do not think it answers the question as it does not really represent the LDS perspective.

Why is this question closed? How is it opinion-based? Is there no factual answer we can come up with here?

comment How does the relationship compare between earthly children and spiritual children in LDS theology?
That word is more common in LDS theology, so it's definitely better. Just realize that, in LDS scriptures (Moses 1:35), God gave even Moses only a vision of the inhabitants of this world, so most remarks on other worlds are mere speculation, not doctrine.

"For their own planet" is a foreign concept to Mormons. Planets, in general, are not really well understood in Mormon doctrine, so maybe try to abstract your questions away from "planets."

+1 great question. The symbolism is striking. Interesting that Christ was born prophetically "in the meridian of time." What of a Savior who was not born central to time and all creation?
