The Three Degrees of Glory, and the Plan of Salvation

Should Heaven and Hell be so black and white?  Is there no gray area?  What about those people who do not know about Christ?  There are too many “what if’s” to mention here. 

So let’s get into what the LDS view of  What Heaven and Hell is.  And something we call the “Plan of Salvation”.  It’s VERY exciting stuff!  (click on the link above to get a full picture)

Here is a great definition of the “Degrees of Glory” found here http://scriptures.lds.org/gs/d/19

“Differing kingdoms in heaven. At the final judgment, each person will be assigned to an eternal dwelling place in a specific kingdom of glory, except those who are sons of Perdition.
Jesus said, In my Father’s house are many mansions, John 14: 2 (Ether 12: 32). There is one glory of the sun, and another of the moon, and another of the stars, 1 Cor. 15: 40-41. Paul was caught up to the third heaven, 2 Cor. 12: 2. There is a place of no glory and everlasting punishment, D&C 76: 30-38, 43-45. There are three degrees of glory, D&C 76: 50-113; 88: 20-32.”
I hope this helps you understand the basics. 
I love this plan, because it makes sense and it shows that our Father in Heaven loves us. 
He does not want ANY of His children to be lost, so He has prepared a way to return to Him!  🙂 
I just love Him XOXO

“Christ takes the slums out of people, and then they take themselves out of the slums.”

“The Lord works from the inside out. The world works from the outside in. The world would take people out of the slums. Christ takes the slums out of people, and then they take themselves out of the slums. The world would mold men by changing their environment. Christ changes men, who then change their environment. The world would shape human behavior, but Christ can change human nature.”
