Revoked Parenthood in the Hereafter If Abusive & Faithless

Revoked Parenthood in the Hereafter If Abusive

How we use procreative powers here determines what powers we will have in the hereafter:

“Our Heavenly Father and His Beloved Son are, by nature, creators. As the sons and daughters of God, we have the potential to become like Them. The Father and the Son have entrusted us with a portion of Their creative power and provided specific guidelines for the proper use of that sacred ability to create life and establish an eternal family. How we feel about and use that sacred power in this life will determine in large measure whether additional creative power will be ours in the life to come.” (“Ye are the Temple of God” by Elder David A Bednar in the Ensign of September 2001 https://www.lds.org/ensign/2001/09/ye-are-the-temple-of-god?lang=eng)

Also, families who reject the gospel and therefore aren’t sealed to each other in temples do not stay together in the hereafter:

“ 9 Will I accept of an offering, saith the Lord, that is not made in my name? 10 Or will I receive at your hands that which I have not appointed? 11 And will I appoint unto you, saith the Lord, except it be by law, even as I and my Fatherordained unto you, before the world was? 12 I am the Lord thy God; and I give unto you this commandment—that no man shall come unto the Father but by me or by my word, which is my law, saith the Lord. 13 And everything that is in the world, whether it be ordained of men, by thrones, or principalities, or powers, or things of name, whatsoever they may be, that are not by me or by my word, saith the Lord, shall be thrown down, and shall not remain after men are dead, neither in nor after the resurrection, saith the Lord your God. 14 For whatsoever things remain are by me; and whatsoever things are not by me shall be shaken and destroyed. 15 Therefore, if a man marry him a wife in the world, and he marry her not by me nor by my word, and he covenant with her so long as he is in the world and she with him, their covenant and marriage are not of force when they are dead, and when they are out of the world; therefore, they are not bound by any law when they are out of the world. 16 Therefore, when they are out of the world they neither marry nor are given in marriage; but are appointed angels in heaven, which angels are ministering servants, to minister for those who are worthy of a far more, and an exceeding, and an eternal weight of glory. 17 For these angels did not abide my law; therefore, they cannot be enlarged, but remain separately and singly, without exaltation, in their saved condition, to all eternity; and from henceforth are not gods, but are angels of God forever and ever.” (D&C 132:9-17)

Finally, the judgement of God are upon those who abuse children:

-“WE WARN that individuals who violate covenants of chastity, who abuse spouse or offspring, or who fail to fulfill family responsibilities will one day stand accountable before God. Further, we warn that the disintegration of the family will bring upon individuals, communities, and nations the calamities foretold by ancient and modern prophets.” (The Family: A Proclamation to the World from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints https://www.lds.org/topics/family-proclamation?lang=eng&old=true)

  1. Parenting is a sacred responsibility but we cannot force children to heaven. If parents are sealed to their children I believe they will always be their children no matter what choices they make . Parents and their children may obtain different kingdoms but love can connect them always

    1. Thanks Kathy. Yes I think righteous parents always retain their children. Even if a child selects the telestial kingdom, that child will forever thank its parent for all it did in their behalf. And yes, we can’t force children to heaven. Even if we are sealed, this doesn’t mean our righteousness can bring the children to the celestial kingdom. Though the sealing is very powerful and helpful, agency is sacred above all.
