What Happens After We Die? “What Do We Know about the Spirit World?

Where is the spirit world?
President Brigham Young (1801–77) taught that the spirits of those who once lived on earth remain around us on this earth, though we can’t see them.1

1.See Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Brigham Young (1997), 279. …

Can spirits in the spirit world see us?
Yes, when needed. President Joseph F. Smith (1838–1918) said that those in the spirit world can see us more clearly than we can see them and that “their solicitude for us and their love for us and their desire for our well being must be greater than that which we feel for ourselves.” 4

July 5 – John 10:17-18; “Therefore, doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from mine, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again.  This commandment have I received of my Father.”

James 2:19 “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.”

The other day Melissa emailed asking if I’d heard about the latest LDS Primary song that’s a big hit in Mormon circles. I’ve copied Melissa’s email below because she said what I was thinking!

In essence, the main theme of the song encourages little kids to be just like Joe Smith. One has to wonder where Jesus might fit in… (more…)

Journal of Discourses 26:186 – 187 “If it were possible for the Lord Jesus to descend from the mansions of glory and take possession of a mortal tabernacle, and be born of a woman in the shape of an infant, is it not equally possible that we all did the same? …

The Bible proves to us that Jesus existed with the Father, and that He descended from His high estate in the regions of glory to become a mortal man…Now, is there anything difficult or incomprehensible in the thought, that we all in like manner, existed with the Father, and with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, before we came here? ” – George Q. Cannon, Salt Lake City, September 28th, 1884 (more…)

San Francisco’s Gay Men’s Chorus Performs with Mormon Tabernacle Choir “…Wherever the tour takes the choir and the Orchestra at Temple Square, they look to rehearse with the choral community in the locations where they will perform. So it’s logical they would reach out to the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus. … “The purpose of music is to unite people,” said Mormon Tabernacle Choir President Ron Jarrett. “Music affects people in many ways. This is a great opportunity to bring two cultures, if you will, to the center of things and to build bridges, to make friends, and to make an enjoyable experience for everyone through music.”” (more…)

June 29 –2 Peter 1:20-21; “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”

Matthew 16:18 “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

As a brand new Christian who’d only been out of Mormonism for a week or two, a phrase used by the pastor got my immediate attention. Twenty-five years later I still recall how surprised I was hearing him refer to Christianity as ‘The True Church of Jesus Christ’.

Not long after that event, I was speaking at a church in my beloved Utah, and that pastor titled his talk as ‘Will the One True Church of Jesus Christ Please Stand Up?’.

The phrase they both used is the subject matter and title of our article; ‘The True Church of Jesus Christ’.

Today our inquiry is simple.

What is the true church of Jesus Christ? (more…)
