According to Mormon scripture (the “Book of Abraham”) God dwells on a planet near the star Kolob (although Mormons don’t say where Kolob actually is).
I don’t think that a God who is a real person and who lives in a specific location is any weirder than a God who has no boundary’s and can be both embodied and not at the same time while talking to himself in prayer. A God who sends the vast majority of his children to an everlasting burning torture simply because God did not allow them to be born in a time and place where the gospel exists or because they died too young to understand. And all this because of God’s perfect justice mercy and love.
Was this answer helpful?
Heaven forbid that God reveal additional truths that creedal Christians have been in the dark about for hundreds of years. What are we to believe? Heaven is nowhere? God is a big blob of nothingness? There is nothing Biblical about the “weird” speculations garnered from superstitions.
1 Cor 2: 7-9
7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
Mormons believe that the Savior Jesus Christ was resurrected in the flesh and will never again give up His physical body. This is a common Christian belief based on the teachings of the New Testament. Where that physical body is now is a question that usually goes unanswered. To say that Christ’s physical body is in heaven, and then insist that heaven is a spiritual place without a physical location doesn’t make sense. The planet idea as a physical location for the Savior’s physical body at least makes sense. Some people enjoy discussing these kind of mysteries, but I’m more concerned with how to live my life more closely in line with the teachings of the Savior than I am with where His physical body is right now.
My friend you can not just ignore where God dwells as a thinkable man, Remember there is nothing like nothingness. Everything is material whether you like it or not and it possesses body and space whether you see it or not visible. So God dose occupy space but he is superb works in a speed of thought, omni-purpose omnipresent if your permitted to see him he is just like you.
I LOVE THIS ONE. As did the screen-writer for the original “Battlestar Galctica” tv series, who changed the name from Kolob to Kobol specifically citing his Mormon upbringing.
This sounds like Scientolgy.
Ron Hubbard ;Zenu on Kolab
Do you suppose God will give Mitt Romney exclusive export rights to cheap Kolobian oil? Maybe a space pipeline too.
Nothing weird about any of this, because it is all fantasy. The Creator of the Universe is unknowable, especially by stupid humanity. Joseph Smith just plucked ideas and fantasy from his own imagination, just like the Jews and Christians. The Jews loved the idea that they are ‘special’, just as Joseph Smith wanted to be ‘special’ and know the ‘true’ religion of God. All of this is the same as William Shakespeare, from a human’s limited finite brain, or better very ‘Harry Potter’, fantasy ALL.
So of course a god can be on planet Kolob, or any planet, its purely silly fiction!
Can/does God (actual creator of all we know) exist maybe, possibly, maybe hopefully, but ‘it’ is NOT shown to us via all these silly religions, which likely are ALL completely wrong!
Just us Humans afraid of the unknown, and it is scary, but….. !
Better if we spent our time trying to make the World we live in better, better for all not just your chosen ‘clan’!
A human = another human, we are all of the same value or lack of!
But of course I am MORE special than you!
