Love the LDS Church

                What do you know about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?  Would you like to know more?  Greg Trimble wrote about one “concept” of the Church that earned his love.

                Trimble wrote, “There are a lot of reasons why I love the LDS Church but there’s one concept in particular that I love more than any other.  This one concept that I’ve fallen in love with in Mormonism is foreign to all other Christian churches and religions.  This concept is doctrinally denounced by the Christian leaders of the world.  Pastors and priests don’t teach it at all.  In fact they teach against it based on their traditions and understanding of the scriptures.  But I learned by experience … that this concept, this doctrine, this truth, is burning bright in the hearts of those people who attend those churches.”

                What is the doctrine?  Why do members of other churches believe the doctrine when their pastors and priests teach against it?  The doctrine is that families can be sealed together for all eternity if sealed by proper authority in the House of the Lord – or temple.  Why do people believe this doctrine even though they hear speeches condemning it?  They believe it because they are children of God.  They heard this doctrine in their pre-earth life, and the belief is still a part of them.  Almost all people want to be with their loved ones forever.  The Lord has provided a way for us to do so.
