You don't GET your own planet, you MAKE your own planet.

All you get is the do-it-yourself kit. So they don't hand you
an already made planet and say, "enjoy yourself," they give you
raw materials and you have to organize them into a planet
yourself.

I mean if you didn't "create" the world for your celestial
offspring, then you wouldn't be a God.

"They will even be able to have spirit children and MAKE new
worlds for them to live on, and do all the things our Father
in Heaven has done." (emphasis added) (third paragraph on the
page)

By the time you reach the spirit world, shouldn't everyone be getting a clue about where things stand? If by that time you know there is a Jesus and all that, wouldn't you sign up just for the eternal sex?

This is the part that used to get me. So Christopher Hitchens
was a rabid atheist who denied an afterlife. He died and, if
Mormonism is correct, he's now in an afterlife. The Mormon
missionaries come to him in the spirit world and say, "we are
the representatives of God whose afterlife you are now
experiencing." You don't think that would have a MUCH better
effect than a couple of mishies showing up at his door in
Earth?

I never understood the idea of trying to convince people in
the Spirit World. It seemed like a slam dunk to me that if
you die and you wake up in the Spirit World then you KNOW that
there's some sort of God and afterlife, etc. And whoever is
running it is, without question, in charge for real.

Unless . . .

Maybe they have all kinds of competing churches in the Spirit
World, and preachers and missionaries from all those other
churches are vying for your attention and UNLESS you choose
the right one, you are screwed--just like things are here on
Earth.

Re: Oh. I get it now . . . you don't GET your own planet . . .

That's what is so preposterous about HF's plan of happiness.

As a requirement you are sent into the world blindfolded and if you should stumble or step on someone's toe ...... you so fooked.

But not to worry, you can plead your case once the blindfold comes off cause hebbenly fodder really loves you; he was just funnin with the blind man's bluff thingie.
