Church News, ‘Family History Blesses the Living as Well as the Dead,’ 24 February 2015;
“Building the family is at the center of the plan of salvation, the leaders taught. On the other side of the veil, individuals will be organized into families through ordinances that take place in temples. Because of the importance of those ordinances, it is essential that families work together to redeem their dead. Through modern technology advances family history has improved, allowing people of all ages to get involved with ease.”
Mark 12:27; “He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.”
Luke 12:27-28; “Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?”
Mormons have been tricked into believing they must busy themselves with things that don’t pertain to them. The dead are long gone, yet Mormon leaders guilt adherents into believing lies.
We have no power to change things once life is over – God has always said you live once and then it’s done. Hebrews 9:27 says after death is judgment. There are no second chances, no matter how the Church tries to spin the story. Also consider 2 Corinthians 6:2b; “…behold, now is the day of salvation.”
One of the things we found odd in Mr. Packer’s statement was when he said, ‘on the other side of the veil individuals will be organized into families through ordinances’. Can you just imagine this?
So, if you haven’t completed great-grandma’s ordinances, it’s back to bottom kingdom for her? Come now. Since when did God need a filing system to keep organized?
The Lord’s admonition in Luke’s gospel is yet another reminder for us to free ourselves from everything prohibiting our adoration of Him who paid the price. God has it under control, and sees each one of us the moment we’re conceived. If you don’t believe this my friend, you’re worshiping the wrong god.
