Mormon Dilemma 381

Satan’s Punishment

Doctrines of Salvation 1:65; “The punishment of Satan and the third of the hosts of heaven who followed him, was that they were denied the privilege of being born into this world and receiving mortal bodies. They did not keep their first estate and were denied the opportunity of eternal progression.” – Joseph Fielding Smith

Hebrews 1:5; “For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?”

This verse from Hebrews may seem out of place for those unfamiliar with Mormonism.

 Remember, Joseph Smith taught that Jesus and Lucifer are spirit brothers. Lucifer wanted to save everyone and the council of the gods didn’t agree with him so they tossed him and one-third of the spirits in the pre-existence out of heaven. 

Their punishment was that they’d receive no bodies, but would roam earth to deceive the elect.
