Why didn't he teach them the higher law then? And if a person who dies under the law of Moses are like the angels, why are Mormons doing works for the dead for them? Why doesn't he give one verse that tells us that eternal marriage is required for our salvation? In Mormonism you only receive the greatest gifts if you temple married. Wouldn't Jesus want us all to have his best?<quoted text>
Because she was married according to the Law of Moses, a lesser law, meaning her marriages were for this life only. So, at the death of her husband(s), her marriage(s) ended. She was no longer bound by the lesser law. That's why "she" would be "like an angel." Because she would not have the opportunity to be married again in the resurrection. Her opportunity was for this life only.
When Joseph Smith created the LDS church, on of the first things he did was talk about building temples, and did build one beginning in Kirtland. Every time the Saints were forced to move after, one of the first things Smith did was pick a temple lot. This is showing how essential the LDS church thinks temple work is to the followers.
Yet you have not one record of the early church talking about the need to do temple work. You may say that is because they already had a temple in Jerusalem. But then you have a problem. The gentile members would not have been allowed in that temple. That would require that the early church would build their own to met the needs of all the members. Yet they made no effort to build one. They never talked about the need to have one. There is no talk of temple endowments or it's need.
Yet Mormonism is suppose to be a restoration of that church. What happened?
