Some Intelligences Greater than Others
Before Life, pg. 91-92; “God gave his children their free agency even in the spirit world…of choosing the good and rejecting the evil, or partaking of the evil to suffer the consequences of their sins. Because of this, some even there were more faithful than others in keeping the commandments of the Lord. Some were of greater intelligence than others, as we find it here…
The spirits of men had their free agency, some were greater than others…. The spirits of men were not equal. They may have had an equal start, and we know they were all innocent in the beginning; but the right of free agency which was given to them enabled some to outstrip others, and thus, through the eons of immortal existence, to become more intelligent, more faithful….” – Brent L.

Colossians 3:10-11; “And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: 11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.”
First of all there’s no such thing as a pre-existence.
Secondly, the Church contradicts itself when they say everyone was innocent in the beginning.
And last but certainly not least, how could some spirits be more intelligent than others? How can they be equal, but not be the same?
This is the epitome of purposefully confusing and brain washing your followers. It’s scary this guy is allowed to teach!
