Parley Pratt2Key to the Science of Theology, pp. 95-96; “He is an intelligent being, in the image of God, possessing every organ, attribute, sense, sympathy, affection that is possessed by God Himself.

They are, in fact, men who have passed from the rudimental state to the higher spheres of progressive being. Some have died and risen again to life, and are consequently possessed of a divine, human body of flesh and bones, immortal and eternal. They eat, drink, sing and converse like other men. Some of them hold the keys of Apostleship and Priesthood, by which they teach, instruct, bless, and perform miracles and many mighty works.

Spirit World is Here, but Invisible

Mormon Decisions 10Key to the Science of Theology, pgs 129-130; “As to its [the spirit world] location, it is here on the very planet where we were born; or, in other words, the earth and other planets of a like sphere, have their inward or spiritual spheres, as well as their outward, or temporal.… A veil is drawn between the one sphere and the other, whereby all the objects in the spiritual sphere are rendered invisible to those in the temporal.” – Parley P.

Jesus is an Immortal God

Key to the Science of Theology, pg 38-39; “Here, then, we have a sample of an immortal God—a God who is often declared in the Scriptures to be like his Father, “being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person,” and possessing the same attributes as his Father, in all their fullness; a God not only possessing body and parts, but flesh and bones, and sinews, and all the attributes, organs, senses and affections of a perfect man.

He differs in nothing from his Father, except in age and authority, the Father having the seniority, and, consequently, the right, according to the patriarchal laws of eternal Priesthood, to preside over Him, and over all his dominions, forever and ever.”
