The Desert Hot Springs California Elders shared a video on the Church of Jesus Christ in Yucca Valley & Palm Springs Facebook pages that tackles a common question missionaries receive, having to do with the provisions made available for people who don’t have a knowledge of the fulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ while on this earth.
Elder Abplanalp asks Elder Temple the question, “Where is Ghandi?”
For those who don’t know, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948) was an Indian lawyer who employed nonviolent resistance to lead the successful campaign for India’s independence from British Rule, and in turn inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world.¹
The video below is a great one to share with family and friends who may not have a complete understanding of the mercy and justice of God in preparing a way for all of His children to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ.
“Sometimes we wonder about those who have passed on and where they are. We know that God loves his children, and He wants all of us to have the chance to accept His Son, Jesus Christ. Those who have passed on without a knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ have the opportunity to learn in the Spirit World.
We have the opportunity to perform saving ordinances, such as baptism, for them in our temples! Through this work, they have the choice to accept or reject Christ and His Atonement.
1 Peter 4:6 says: For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.
Where did we come from? Why are we here? Where are we going? If you or someone you know is asking these questions, our whole purpose is to help you answer them! Please share this video with them and let them know there are missionaries ready to help them answer any questions they may have.”
