I have been a member of the list for a little while, and as yet have
never seen this assumption raised by anyone. While I may be wrong, I
hope that I am not.
Why do temple work at all if we had no hope that the recipients of that
work could enter into the Celestial Kingdom? I mean, even unbaptized,
good people will survive the changing of this earth into a terrestrial
sphere when the Savior's holy foot touches the Mount of Olives, am I
correct? If those good people, who have not received any of the required
ordinances for the Celestial Kingdom, can live with the Savior on the
earth, then again I ask: Why even attempt to do temple work at all
unless we are trying to fulfill the Lord's work and glory - "to bring to
pass the immortality and eternal life of man."* Eternal life is
exaltation in the Celestial Kingdom.
* Obviously, the "work" in this instance is complete - thanks be to God
and the Lamb, all men will resurrected and thus gain immortality. It is
the glory we are privileged to participate in - helping ourselves,
families, friends, neighbors, and kindred and non-kindred dead obtain
"eternal life."
