Isaiah 45:6; “That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.”
Today we’re doing things a little differently – woo-hoo!! The title of this article is a good example of how LDS doctrines lead people away from the Lord, instead of to Him.
Reality of heaven for a Christian goes something like this: after death a Christian goes to heaven to be with the Lord Jesus, and it’s there they’ll be able to see family and friends who are also saved.
For the Mormon, it’s complicated. After death they’ll expect to go to heaven to be with their spouses, and in the scenario Orson Pratt has proposed, that one couple will begin ‘multiplying their species’. They’ll continue to do this until they’ve given birth to enough children to sufficiently populate an earth like this for the extent of time their planet is in existence.

Ensign, ‘Trust In the Lord,’ November 1995; “The Lord’s plan is to exalt you to live with Him and be greatly blessed. The rate at which you qualify is generally set by your capacity to mature, to grow, to love, and to give of yourself. He is preparing you to be a god. You cannot understand fully what that means, yet, He knows.” – Richard G. Scott
New Era, ‘People on Other Worlds,’ April 1971; “A great many Christians today…have long since abandoned the doctrine that man was created in the image of God. …
Long before our God began his creations, he dwelt on a mortal world like ours, one of the creations that his Father had created for him and his brethren. He, with many of his brethren, was obedient to the principles of the eternal gospel. One among these, it is presumed, was a savior for them, and through him they obtained a resurrection and an exaltation on an eternal, celestial world. 8 Then they gained the power and godhood of their Father and were made heirs of all that he had, continuing his works and creating worlds of their own for their own posterity—the same as their Father had done before, and his Father, and his Father, and on and on.
Journal of Discourses 20:211; “God revealed to him (Joseph Smith) not only the fact of Divine existence, but even how he became God; that it was through living up to correct principles, and by developing within himself every sublime sentiment that had its origin in truth. He taught him how the people “who dwelt on the earth” might also be thus exalted to be angels of God, and finally Gods themselves” – C. W. Stayner, Salt Lake City, May 25th, 1879.
