If your life is not in jeopardy for what you believe, you’re probably on the wrong side!
“Indeed, all who want to live a godly life united with the Messiah Yeshua will be persecuted.” (2Tim 3:12)
It is what you actually believe that determines how you walk out your faith, “but avoid stupid controversies, genealogies, quarrels and fights about the Torah; because they are worthless and futile.” (Titus 3:9)

Mormon Marriage

Marriage in Mormonism has two forms: marriage for time and marriage for eternity (or celestial marriage).

Marriage for time is for those who prefer it. Mormon men and women are sure that there is no exaltation (elevation to godhood) to be had unless they are married for time and eternity. Mormon women believe that there can be no salvation for them unless they are married. Thus plural marriages were accepted and encouraged until the practice was stopped by legal prosecution. Some plural marriages were supposedly for both time and eternity, and they had been practiced for some time before Joseph Smith’s “revelation” on the practice was announced publicly by Brigham Young in 1852. Polygamy was abolished to comply with the Constitutional law in 1890, but some of the plural marriages contracted before that date were allowed to continue.

According to Mormon doctrine, celestial marriages are continually producing spirit children who are waiting to be born of mortal parents so they can then earn “salvation” to the Celestial Kingdom. It follows that a good Mormon will have as many wives and children as possible so these spirit children can be born.
