  • Mormons Believe the Focus in the Highest Heaven Is on Becoming gods
  • Mormons Believe That Families Are Eternal

Talk About It
  1. Watch the video together or invite someone to summarize the topic.
  2. What is your initial reaction to this video? Do you disagree with any of it? What jumped out at you?
  3. What would you like heaven to be like? What do you think it actually will be like?
  4. Do you find the Mormon idea of heaven appealing? Why or why not?
  5. If the Latter-day Saint idea of heaven was real, which level do you think you would go to? Why?
  6. What are some fallacies or problems with the Mormon concept of eternity? (See Can families be united forever?)
  7. Read Revelation 21:1-9 and 22-27. Compare and contrast this description of heaven with the Mormon view.
  8. Talk about the idea of families being united forever. How do you feel about being united to your earthly family in heaven versus being united to God’s larger family?
  9. Write a personal action step based on this conversation.
