Lonely Heaven?

Were your ancestors, or even your parents, converted to the Lord? Did they profess the name of Jesus prior to death? What would your current church say about their eternal reward or punishment?

Most religions will tell you that they'll not be eligible for heaven and will be eternally punished. What does the LDS church say about this?

The article linked here is a good summary of the general belief and doctrine of the LDS church. High level, those that never had the chance at redemption or those that had no opportunity to receive Christ can still be saved. The New Testament alludes to this and modern day prophecy expounds on this eternal doctrine. Read more or go to for more info.

Also, please feel free to comment below. I'd be interested to know what you think.

Hey Greg! Great blog. :) I actually do have a question/comment about this. I saw a news report about this aspect of the LDS Doctrine and was curious...if someone was baptized through their personal church while living, does the LCD church still baptize them otherwise when they have died?
