Celestial Glory

Posted by: Andee / Category: ,

When you are Mormon, your goal is perfection. You want to live the perfect life, follow the gospel, raise your kids to be missionaries and marry in the temple. You put off your happiness now for your happiness in the next world, and you are promised that its gonna be fantastic.

Joseph Smith and other early prophets of the church taught that polygamy was required to reach the celestial kingdom (for all you non-Mormons out there, that is the highest level of heaven... they have it separated). You had to be in a plural marriage on earth, or you were screwed. These women put up with this and other rules laid before them because they believed they would be blessed for it in the next life.

Unfortunately, Mormons still believe polygamy is practiced in the celestial kingdom. Many don't realize this because it's not taught openly. When you and hubby both pass away, you have to share him with other women. WTF?

It's not unique to Mormons... why is it that women are used as a reward? Some people believe heaven will have multitudes of virgins to welcome these men as they reach heaven. Some people even believe these women give birth to spirit children and you raise your happy little brood for eternity.

Mormons also believe that the best of the best will then be Gods themselves. They will have their own planets and create a world and rule over it. The many wives would take care of the hundreds of spirit children while hubby plays God. Again... WTF?

Joseph Smith taught that humans came from a planet called Kolob, and Brigham Young taught that there were quaker-like people living on the moon! We now know this is all bullshit, yet most are too afraid to stand up and call them on it. The church doesn't talk about it because they don't want people to know about it. Shhh... lets keep it secret! Oops... I mean sacred. Give me a break.

Call me crazy, but that's not my idea of a good time.

    I'm left wondering where it was that you were taught that 'Mormons still believe that polygamy will be practiced in the Celestial Kingdom' and that it is somehow a trophy for good men to have numerous wives.

    The whole post really does seem to smell of bad conjecture and misunderstanding.

    I am wondering what rock you have been hiding under to not know this information. It is everywhere in the temple and all throughout deeper doctrine.

    All throughout the temple???

    Hmmm...I don't seem to remember anywhere at anytime (and I'm a regular participant in the temple services) where it says anything or even displays symbolically that as an individual male, I will have a multitude of wives as my joy for making exhaltation.

    Nope, not insulting you. Just pointing out that you don't know as much as you think you do.
