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 12:7Desire 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.
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.
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.
