Brand new softcover pamphlet! ; This lecture, given in the Logan Temple in 1888 as part of the ongoing Logan Temple Lecture Series, is best known for ther advancement of the controversial doctrine regarding the resurrection of children. Br. Taylor advances the belief, taken from his understanding of the teachings of Joseph Smith, that when children are resurrected, they will not grow. Therefore, reigning throughout the eternities, on the thrones of the Gods, will be bodies of children with the wisdom of men.
The mere fact that this was advanced by him in the Temple, and that it was even addressed, allows us to peer into the annals of Church history. This was a doctrine that, if not taught all the time, was being discussed in private circles among the Church leaders.
Also included in th is discourse is the explicit teaching that God the Father came to this earth and provided the necessary genetic material for the body of Jesus Christ. In other words, the Father sired the Son. Rarely has this been discussed in such frankness as in this discourse.
Elder Taylor also proposes taht God the Father was a Savior on His world, and this is why He had the power to come to this earth as a perfected resurrected Being, partake of gross matter, have blood flow through His veins, provide mortal bodies for His spirit children, then have power over death. He maintains, as does Brigham Young, that Adam, who is Michael, did not die, but was instead translated, and this translation came about from powers obtained through being Exalted previously.
If one is looking for a discourse, given by an early Church authority, to unlock the myopic vision that we so often find ourselves in today, one may find it here. ; The FIG Project Series; 5.5" x 8.5"; 24 pages
