comment Can Humans become Angels?
1 Corinthians 4:9 could easily be explained by saying men are people on the earth and angels are spirits in heaven. Could you share the other references regarding this?

comment What does it mean to be an heir of God and a joint-heir with Christ?
I had no idea that Catholics believe this. Do you know if this doctrine is frequently taught or commonly believed? Also, you said we will become more like God after the resurrection. Will we be 100% like him, as perfect and omnipotent? If not, what are the differences?

comment What does it mean to comment on scripture with scripture?
I made the assumption that by complete you mean it contains all of God's word, or a complete explanation of Christ's gospel. Is that correct?

comment What was it about the death of Jesus that allows God to forgive us?
I've been thinking about that recently too. I would imagine that the sacrifice required for the sins of the entire world would be something so great that no human could endure it, hence the need for a godly saviour. But everything we read in the Bible surrounding Christ's death is able to be endured by a mortal man.

comment How do Mormons interpret the warning in Revelation about adding to the book?
Not to mention we are commanded not to add to God's word as early as in Dueteronomy 4:2 "Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the LORD your God that I give you."

comment Are there multiple levels to Heaven?
@Flimzy - besides 1 Corinthians 15:39-41, as mentioned in the original question, you also have 2 Corinthians 12:2 "I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. "
