RANDY - I know there will be non-members on the earth during
In Mormon Doctrine it explains
that honest and upright people will not have their
free agency taken away, "They will continue to believe
their false doctrine until they voluntarily elect to
receive gospel light."
My questions are...
1) I assume these non members can continue to attend
their own churches as well? The actual buildings they
worship in will still exist during the millennium?
2) Will there still be a Pope and other high ranking
leaders of other churches during the millennium?
JOEL - As far I know the answer to both questions is, yes, but they will all eventually acknowledge Christ's
kingdom and government. Here are some things Brigham Young said:
"When all nations are so subdued to Jesus that every
knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess, there
will still be millions on the earth who will not
believe in him; but they will be obliged to
acknowledge his kingly government".(Discourses of
Brigham Young p. 115)
"The order of society will be as it is when Christ
comes to reign a thousand years; there will be every
sort of sect and party, and every individual following
what he supposes to be the best in religion, and in
everything else, similar to what it is now." (Brigham
Young, JD 2:316.)
"In the millennium men will have the privilege of
being Presbyterians, Methodists or Infidels, but they
will not have the privilege of treating the name and
character of Deity as they have done heretofore. No,
but every knee shall bow and every tongue confess to
the glory of God the Father that Jesus is the Christ."
(Brigham Young, JD 12:274.)
If those other religions still exist then most likely
their leaders will also continue to function until
they are no longer needed, because as President Joseph
Fielding Smith said:
"The gospel will be taught "far more intensely and
with greater power during the millennium, until all
the inhabitants of the earth shall embrace it. . . .
Through the revelations given to the prophets, we
learn that during the reign of Jesus Christ for a
thousand years eventually all people will embrace the
truth." (Joseph Fielding Smith, Doctrines of
