Did the movie say death separates us from God? Alma says that upon death the soul returns to the God who made it. How is that a separation from God? Maybe I'll watch it again.

Death separates us from our families and our earthly homes, but it does not separate us from God. Sorry, but that is a contradiction with both the B of M and the Bible.

RE: Serenity, but it does not separate us from God. Sorry, but that is a contradiction with both the B of M and the Bible.
True, “Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.” Ecclesiastes 12:7
Desire to *depart and to be with Christ… (Phil. 1:23). Paul uses the term *analuo (loosed up) At death, though the body is “loosed down”. When Lazarus died, his spirit “was carried away by the angels into Abraham’s bosom” (Lk. 16:22).
For those who die in Christ, death is union with the Lord. Jesus informed the dying thief, “Today you shall be with me in paradise” (Lk. 23:43).
At death, all who have lived in rebellion to God will enter a spirit state characterized by pains, trouble, and sorrow (Psa. 116:3). They will be immersed in shame and contempt (Dan. 12:2). It will be a realm of anguish, suffering, and torment (Mt. 22:13; 25:46; Mk. 9:48; Lk. 16:24; 2 Thes. 1:9; Rev. 20:10).
