On another collaborative episode in The Gospel Topcs Essays Series with The Backyard Professor, Rebecca and Landon dive into the Gospel Topics Essay, Becoming Like God. Most of us grew up in the church with the narrative that we would someday become gods and create our own worlds. This was not something we misunderstood, but something that was taught in sunday school lessons, seminary, sacrament meeting talks, firesides, and more. In the past decades and especially recently, this idea has been discarded and sent down the memory hole as if it never existed. In this episode we delve into statements by past and current prophets that help us understand the motivations behind removing this pivitoal concept from the gospel. We also look at what this means to current members and what their concept of an afterlife looks like now. We know you'll find this episode as fascinating as we did, this change is gigantic!
We also want to note that BYP had some technical issues in this episode but they even out as we get going, so bear with us, you'll be glad you did! It's always an adventure to podcast with BYP!
