They Believe They Will Become Like God

They actually believe that faithful believers will become like God.

It’s even in their own holy scriptures:

“BEHOLD, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
2  Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.”

(New Testament | 1 John 3:1 – 2)

The Planet Kolob

The planet Kolob and the song about it.

Kolob is a star or planet described in Mormon scripture. Reference to Kolob is found in the Book of Abraham, a work published by Latter Day Saint (LDS) prophet Joseph Smith, Jr. According to this work, Kolob is the heavenly body nearest to the throne or residence of God. While the Book of Abraham refers to Kolob as a “star”,[1] it also refers to planets as stars,[2] and therefore, some LDS commentators consider Kolob to be a planet.[3] Other Latter Day Saints (commonly referred to as Mormons) consider Kolob to be a Christian metaphor.

Kolob has never been identified with any modern astronomical object and is not recognized as an ancient concept by modern Egyptology. Kolob is rarely discussed in modern LDS religious contexts, but it is periodically a topic of discussion in criticism of Mormonism. The idea also appears within LDS culture, and there is a LDS hymn about it. Kolob is also the inspiration for the planet Kobol within the Battlestar Galactica universe, created by Glen A. Larson, a Mormon.[4][5]

Women in heaven

Move over Saint Peter, a woman can’t get into heaven unless her husband lets her in and once there, she will get to be eternally pregnant with billions of spirit children.

Providing Bodies

By having a lot of children you are providing bodies for spirits waiting to come down to earth.  It is like a line at Walmart at Christmas.  People lined up everywhere waiting for their turn on the earth.  This push to provide bodies for spirits seems to be changing.  Where are the big Mormon families these days?  Big now seems to be four children….maybe there aren’t so many spirits waiting now.  Maybe the express check out line in heaven finally got opened up and most everyone has checked out of the pre-existence?

Satan rules the water.

Mormon underwear protects from physical harm.

Moroni personally dedicated the hill where the Manti temple stands.
