Kiera Elmer Brother Tippetts The Eternal Family 9/22/15 The Family 1. Some people believe there are overpopulation issues in the world today. How would we  explain why it is so important that “God’s commandment for his children to multiply and  replenish the earth remains in force.” as stated in the Family Proclamation? Heavenly Father has many spirit children who are still anxiously waiting for their turn to  experience mortal life and fulfill their purpose in becoming more like Heavenly Father. We have  been given the divine power to create the physical bodies for these spirit children to use while  here on earth, and it upsets the Lord when able couples refuse this gift he has given for selfish  purposes. Doctrine and Covenants 104:17 says, “For the Earth is full, and there is enough and to  spare; yea, I prepared all things, and have given unto the children of men to be agents unto  themselves.” This earth was designed for families to grow on, so there will always be enough to  support them. We must keep this commandment of the Lord and get married and raise children  whenever able. I Nephi 3:7 reads, “I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the  children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which  he commandeth them.” Heavenly Father would never allow over population to be an issue,  because he has commanded us to populate and replenish the earth. He will provide the means to  see this commandment through. 2) What does the phrase “endure by diligence unto prayer” mean as mentioned by  President Eyring in his talk? One of the principles of the gospel of Christ is to endure to the end. This phrase is  important because it shows us that we don’t need to do it alone. Enduring is much harder when  we don’t allow the spirit to help us, and we bring the spirit into our lives by prayer. The phrase  doesn’t say that we endure with prayer as passive component that is a good idea on the way, but  that we endure by prayer. Endurance comes through prayer as an essential part of reaching out to  our Heavenly Father and Christ to use the atonement and have the presence of the spirit. 3) President Eyring also mentions that the family unit is not only important to the church  and society, but is “our hope for eternal life.” Why is it important along with baptism, the  remission of sins, coming unto Christ, and enduring to the end? The only way that we can reach the highest degree of glory within the three in the  celestial kingdom to dwell with our Heavenly Father forever, we must be sealed in the temple as  eternal families. Marriage and family is the key to that portion of the celestial kingdom. We can  only dwell with God when we have done what he has to become an exalted being not only in  obedience, but in eternal marriage and family.  The Eternal Family 1. Why does our lifestyle have an effect on an eternal seal in the temple? The definition of a covenant is a promise between you and God. God promises, in the  case of eternal marriage, that you will be sealed for time and all eternity, if you will keep the  commandments and come unto him. Temple covenants and ordinances are forever and binding,  on the conditions that we keep the commandments and stay worthy of the temple. It isn’t just a  bond that happens once and once it is done, it’s done. When we make lifestyle choices that are  not in line with heavenly father and the promises you made with him and to your spouse during  marriage, those blessings can be taken away despite the eternal seal you received in the temple. 2) Why is it not enough to be saved individually and we must be saved in families? The first step on the road to salvation and eternal life is on an individual basis. We must  learn of Christ, come unto him and agree to follow his terms for mercy and grace, follow his  doctrine in being baptized and having a broken heart and contrite spirit for our sins to be  forgiven. Once we turn our hearts to him, we will have more of a desire to do everything that is  asked of us for eternal life. The earth was created for families, and that is our divine purpose here on earth — to have families to become exalted beings as Heavenly Father is. We may be saved individually by our  life choices, but we cannot be exalted as Heavenly Father is without a sealed family at our side.  We all have agency, and the choices of our family members to go astray and become unworthy  of the temple will not affect our ability to have eternal life with God as long as we have done all  we can do to bring them back to the truth. 3) How would you explain the plan of salvation and doctrine of eternal families to a  widow? First, I would tell this woman that she is a daughter of God and wants her to know that  He loves her so very much, and knows her and the pain she is feeling. He wants her to be happy,  and has designed a plan so that we can all be happy and live with our families forever; even after  this life. We believe in having eternal families, and that it is the way to find true happiness in  life. She will see her husband again — for he lives on and will be resurrected along with  everyone else who has walked this earth someday. For them to be sealed forever as a family,  they must enter into the covenant in the temple to be sealed for time and all eternity, instead of  ‘til death do us part. It is a beautiful plan that Father wants us to be a part of! Would you like to  talk to my two friends about the steps that need to be taken to get here? The Elders/Sisters are  wonderful people who will answer all of your questions!
