How could you say it is not doctrine or doctrinal? Jesus himself taught that a spirit hath not flesh and bones.Shawn Henry wrote: ↑May 27th, 2023, 3:07 pmI know it's basic doctrine, but it's not doctrinal, meaning the scriptures seem to indicate otherwise. It is more accurate to say it is common belief or a learned precept.onefour1 wrote: ↑May 27th, 2023, 12:28 am It is basic doctrine of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that Satan and his minions were denied the ability to gain bodies of flesh and bones so I don't believe they have the ability to take on flesh and bones of their own will. This is why they try to possess others bodies. Its not a power that they have. Not sure what you mean by "memory holed".
The brethren do not let Deseret Book sell Miracle of Forgiveness. They are embarrassed by how it is fodder for the critics. They more or less disavow it.
36 And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
37 But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.
38 And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?
39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
40 And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.
41 And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?
42 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.
43 And he took it, and did eat before them.
If spirit did have flesh and bones that would make Jesus Christ himself a liar.
What are the problems that they have with the book "Miracle of Forgiveness" exactly? I have not known a prophet since Spencer W. Kimball who exuded the spirit as strongly as he did.
