Romney Wants to Be a God In the Mormon Church's Afterlife
Romney Attacked Trump Because Romney Wants to Be a God In the Mormon
Church's Afterlife ? ? ?
Could it be that Romney is attacking Trump’s border fence and immigration
policy and Trump solely because it interferes with the Mormon Church’s
proselytizing immigrants. No immigrants, fewer new
members, less money. Its that simple You need to
understand that Church’s ideology, to grasp this concept.
The more women men have [wives], the more children men have and adopt, and
the more people you convert, you become in an afterlife reward, a GOD. And
your rank/standing in the afterlife in the Mormon kingdom of heaven is
according to the number of women, children and converts you left on earth
in the short time you were there This is part of Romney’s plan to become
a GOD. This is part of the Mormon Church’s plan to have its men folks become
Gods. It just that simple. Read the old literature of the Church which will
Unique to the Mormon faith is a belief in three degrees of glory, or three
Celestial Home to the gods and future hope of faithful Latter-day Saints.
One unique element of Mormonism is the concept of the fate of the soul after
death. The founder of Mormonism, Joseph Smith, eventually developed a view of
the afterlife that is much more complex than that held by most other Christian
groups. Traditional language of heaven and hell and salvation and damnation do
not work well in the Mormon context.
In Mormon teachings, the final judgment comes in stages. The first stage
occurs immediately after death. The disembodied spirit is judged as to its
general goodness and is assigned to one of two places: paradise or spirit
prison. Those souls in paradise enjoy peace of conscience and a time of rest.
Those in spirit prison, by contrast, are tormented by guilt and are denied rest.
Both groups, however, suffer because they are separated from their physical
bodies, something that, according to Mormon scripture, the spirits view as a
form of "bondage." At the time of Christ's resurrection from the dead,
the inhabitants of paradise were also resurrected. Those who entered the spirit
world after Christ's resurrection, however, must await resurrection until the
time of Christ's second coming on earth.
Eventually, after Christ returns to the earth, another stage in the judgment
occurs. In order to understand this phase, it is first necessary to grasp the
three-tiered hierarchy of heavens described by Joseph Smith. The highest heaven,
called the Celestial Kingdom, is the destination of those persons who accepted
all of the necessary rituals performed by the authority of the Mormon priesthood
and who were valiant in their testimony of Jesus Christ.
Mormons believe that missionary work continues among the spirits waiting in
prison, and those who accept the teachings of the Church in prison are eligible
for the Celestial Kingdom. It is for this reason that Mormons perform temple
rites on behalf of their dead ancestors. Irrespective of when souls receive the
necessary teachings and rituals, the people who make it to the Celestial Kingdom
live in the presence of God the Father and Jesus Christ and are
The Celestial Kingdom itself is divided into three parts. Mormon scripture
says nothing about the lower two levels, but specifies that only those persons
who are married for time and eternity in Mormon temples are eligible for the
highest Celestial tier. The next level is the Terrestrial Kingdom, a place
inhabited by men and women who lived honorable lives and who accepted the
atonement of Christ, but who were not valiant in their testimonies of Christ.
Residents of this kingdom enjoy the presence of Jesus Christ, but not God the
The third possible destination of the soul is the Telestial Kingdom. It is
here that all those sinners who refused to repent will find themselves. In
Mormon theology, Christ's suffering and death make it possible for a sinner to
be released from the punishment of misdeeds in the afterlife if the sinner
repents and accepts Mormon baptism. Those who do not repent suffer during the
afterlife, but even the darkest sinners eventually are redeemed through the
atonement of Christ into a realm of glory. While they may enjoy the influence of
the Holy Ghost, residents of the Telestial Kingdom are deprived of the presence
of the Father and the Son.
At the time of Christ's second coming, those persons who lived lives worthy
of the Celestial and Terrestrial Kingdoms will be resurrected and will live on
earth under the personal rule of Jesus Christ for a period of 1,000 years. Those
destined for the Telestial Kingdom remain separated from their physical bodies
until the 1,000-year period has ended. Mormonism thus lacks a traditional
heaven/hell dichotomy and offers instead a variety of potential outcomes, based
on the willingness of individuals to implement the teachings of the Church into
his or her life. Mormons thus speak of those in the Celestial Kingdom as heirs
of "exaltation" and those in the lower kingdoms as heirs of
In addition to the three "Kingdoms of Glory," a fourth potential
destination also awaits certain souls. "Outer Darkness" is a
mysterious place that is the home of Satan and those spirits who followed him
when he was cast out of heaven at the beginning of time. It is also the destiny
of those persons who, while living on earth, had a perfect knowledge of the
divinity of Christ but chose to reject him and sin against his teachings. In
Outer Darkness, there is endless lamentation and no divine presence. It is the
closest Mormon analogy to the concept of hell in most other Christian
Although the basic contours of Mormon doctrine on the fate of the soul after
death have remained stable since the 1830s, the question of movement between
kingdoms has been more difficult to settle. In the 19th century, some leading
Mormon thinkers held that a soul might have the opportunity to move up from one
kingdom to another over the course of the eternities. Since the middle of the
20th century, however, Mormons have taught that there is no movement from
kingdom to kingdom after the final judgment is rendered.
