What a great response Gary.  I beleive you are right, although I think the
number will be very small, whatever that means, just because the
requirements are so high.

Subject: [ZION] Repentance from adultery

> The definition given of a Son of Perdition is a person who has received a
high level of understanding of the gospel, then not only fully denies it,
but seeks to commit evil. Cain is the perfect example. He held the
priesthood, spoke with God, then turned completely against God.
> It isn't a matter of someone refusing to repent of some sins. It is a
matter of becoming God's total enemy, which most people in the world will
never do. Even most murderers and adulterers keep some commandments and
believe in God. They don't totally reject the light and truth, since they
have not received a fulness of that light and truth, so they could never
become a son of perdition.
> I would venture that of the 11+ million members in the Church today, less
than 25,000 are spiritual and enlightened enough to ever risk being a son of
perdition.  And there are no non-members that could ever qualify.
> In fact, the only person we know of a surety is a son of perdition is
Cain. Even Judas Iscariot probably did not qualify, as he had not received
the Gift of the Holy Ghost and a true conversion.  There will be, as I
understand it, a major gathering of sons of perdition at the end of the
Millennium, as Satan gathers his people out from those with a full witness
of Christ.  But in all reality, most of those choosing to be sons of
perdition, chose to do so prior to this world.
