I like to make programs and devices smarter and easier to use. I experiment with new, brilliant interface concepts, data structures, and algorithms. I'm a programmer, web developer, and a Mormon.

@FMS The answer isn't missing anything (since all the question can make us do is speculate anyway), in fact the first part of the answer is good; but the last part of the answer starting with "It does appear..." leads readers to the wrong answer. None of the official documents show that the individuals who followed those creeds at the time were sentenced to an everlasting hell. The unofficial ones, well, they are opinion anyway.

Of course that's not what I'm suggesting. And no, this question asks if the Catholic church holds that opinion, then asks for official LDS Church documents/sources to back it up. Your post does not directly answer either question, and it's already heading down the road of an incorrect answer. The most correct, reliable, and least speculative answer that this question has so far without the actual author of that passage being here was posted by @staples.

This question is tagged lds and asks for official LDS sources, so the limitation is not improper. The asker is looking for an LDS perspective to back up the accusation found in another document.

Did you read the linked answer? Books written by or about church leaders aren't necessarily Church teaching. Church teaching comes from the canon of scripture, general conference, or official statements and proclamations. Anyone can write a book with their opinions, but official sources are typically endorsed by the Church. Even so, this isn't about Bruce McConkie, it's about using reliable sources that directly answer the question, not opinions that can be widely misunderstood out of context.

The original question asks for which "official LDS resource/resources do they suppose this statement is founded" and 10 of the 12 quotes are not official LDS resources. So as it stands, this answer does not answer the question. This other answer may help clarify where you can find official LDS teaching.

This answer makes too many harsh assumptions. For example (from emphasis in the post) assuming that "two churches only" means that one of them goes to an eternal hell (an LDS doctrine frequently misunderstood) and the other one doesn't is an oversimplification of the doctrine of salvation, which is about people, not churches. Further, Mormon Doctrine is not an official exposé on the doctrines of the LDS Church. Thus, all the quotes in the last part of the answer, are people's opinions, not necessarily the teaching of the LDS Church.

Quite frankly, the phrase "used to teach with some vehemence that Christians were doomed to hell" is wildly extrapolated from a much tamer doctrine.

Here's a scan of what I believe is the original document being referenced, but I don't see any citations: mmg.mpg.de/fileadmin/user_upload/pdf/…

comment What does the LDS Church (Mormon) teach about marriage and polygamy in the afterlife?
Are you sure? I'm pretty sure the "more righteous women than men" part is speculation and isn't doctrinal. Please add reliable LDS sources.

See also this question about the use of the term "Eternal Father" referring to Jesus.

@davidbrainerd is right. There isn't much of an answer here that's interesting. It appears that the first edition had typos. New editions of the LDS scriptures are pretty regular occurrences, even as recently as 2013.
