  1. Loved the perspectives, although personally I would have liked more time spent on the idea or comfort that believing in a literal resurrection as presented with the LDS doctrine even though you no longer hold on to that space because the perceived negatives.

    Every perspective will bring its positive and negative aspect to it and at different stages in our life we need to hear about different perspectives. In dismissing LDS theology we shouldn’t forget of the comfort, love, and hope having those perspectives actually brings even if it doesn’t work for all.

    I suppose I could have just said, well done, it was a great episode I really enjoyed it which I actually did, but let’s not assume that people are offering false comfort when they are truly sharing from the heart.

    • This podcast not only will not be addressing Mormonism directly it will in affect work to avoid such. That said I am sure we will hit on religious themes a from time to time.

      • Duly noted.
        Although the Mormon Dream is still a noble one to consider and quite romantic in nature.

        • For whom do you speak for, David. The mormon “dream” as you say has me pregnant and giving birth for ETERNITY.
          That was a doctrine I could never believe. So just know that your romantic dream was hell to others.

          • It’s sad to hear that being God’s together with your spouse ruling over your own universe didn’t sound attractive to you.

            I don’t think creating physical children to be equally painful in the afterlife. Besides, it would mostly be about creating spiritual children rather than mortal ones.

            I think the the theology can be tweaked in a way that both can be attractive for one another. But I’m sorry to hear that having glorified sex in the afterlife with resurrected inmortal bodies didn’t appeal to you. It does for me, even if it means tweaking it a bit.

            I suppose this dream mostly works for those who communicate through Physical touch love language.
