Baptisms for the Dead not Necessary

Alma 34:32-35; “…that same spirit which doth possess your bodies at the time that ye go out of this life, that same spirit will have power to possess your body in that eternal world… ye have become subjected to the spirit of the devil, and he doth seal you his,… and the devil hath all power over you; and this is the final state of the wicked.”  (See also 2 Ne 9:38 and Mosiah 2:36-39)

Mormon Doctrine, pg 72; “Based on the eternal principle of vicarious service, the Lord has ordained baptism for the dead as the means whereby all his worthy children of all ages can become heirs of salvation in his kingdom. Baptism is the gate to the celestial kingdom… Obviously, during the frequent periods of apostate darkness when the gospel light does not shine, and also in those geographical areas where legal administrators are not found, hosts of people live and die without ever entering in at the gate of baptism…”

Isaiah 38:18; “For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.”

Well here we are again looking down the long road of contradictions in Mormon teachings.  Sadly their work in those temples is all for naught. Isaiah gave us a good indication of what the dead thinks of the Mormon works inside those grandiose buildings. Pray God would open the eyes of those who do this work day in and year out.
