In another thread, there was a tangent about why resurrected bodies wouldn't have blood. Please bring your references here. Discuss. Twalk amongst yourselves. :D MorningStar P.S. I have always been taught that blood is part of mortality and will not be present in our resurrected bodies.

That is my understanding...

Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, page 199-200, compiled by Joseph Fielding Smith: "As concerning the resurrection, I will merely say that all men will come from the grave as they lie down, whether old or young; there will not be 'added unto their stature one cubit,' neither taken from it; all will be raised by the power of God, having spirit in their bodies, and not blood."

TPJS, page 367: "God Almighty Himself dwells in eternal fire; flesh and blood cannot go there, for all corruption is devoured by the fire...When our flesh is quickened by the Spirit, there will be no blood in this tabernacle. Some dwell in higher glory than others."

Brigham Young taught... "The blood he (Jesus) spilled on Mount Calvary he did not receive again into his veins. That was poured out, and when he was resurrected, another element took the place of the blood. It will be so with every person who receives a resurrection; the blood will not be resurrected with the body, being designed to sustain the life of the present organization. When that is dissolved, and we again obtain our bodies by the power of the resurrection, that which we now call the life of the body, and which is formed from the food we eat and the water we drink will be supplanted by another element, for flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. (7:163)
Discourses of Brigham Young, pg 374, Compiled by John A. Whitsoe.

Those quotes are saying three separate things. Perhaps this amounts to more than just a poor understanding of physiology. I thought the previous thread was insinuating that we would be the same but without blood. That sounded rather goofy. Now it seems that our composition could be something totally unlike now. Perhaps ectoplasm or another substance. Who knows? As Granny Gail from another forum would say, "the best way of ascertaining this is to wait and see".
Jesus said, "The first in importance is, love the Lord God.'
And here is the second: 'Love others as well as you love yourself.'
There is no other commandment that ranks with these."

Hi again Moksha... I just responded to you on the other thread... I think our bodies will be "celestialized" according to scripture... and from what is written it appears that the bodies are different... able to withstand the "glory" to which we will go, and particularly those in the Celestial Kingdom where God is... that is why I, for one, speculate (because we really don't know) that the manner of creating spirit children will not be the same for our perfected bodies as in this sphere for our mortal bodies. Just my opinion...

I don't think we can even comprehend all the cool characterisitcs of an immortal body. In the New Testament, wasn't Jesus able to move through walls or something? I guess I should look that up to be sure.

The simple answer is that the life of the flesh is the blood and in the blood also contain the seeds of death. Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. So those resurrected cannot be of flesh and blood. The flesh is sustained by something else.

Leviticus 17:11 - For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.

When the flesh has life from the Spirit....it cannot have blood which is the cause of corruption and death.


1 Corinthians 15:50 - Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.


I hope this helps...

Peace be unto you
