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."
