Notes for my writing

This blog is made up of notes on the gospel as found in the only true and living church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This includes notes that are either excerpts from or ideas for books I either have in draft or may yet write.

Scripture study note - What is the earthly state of the wicked?

I was looking up a scripture and ran across the following, which clearly contradicts some popular ideas.

Of the Telestial the Lord states:

D&C 76:103 These are they who are liars, and sorcerers, and adulterers, and whoremongers, and whosoever loves and makes a lie.
 104 These are they who suffer the wrath of God on earth.
 105 These are they who suffer the vengeance of eternal fire.

Note particularly verse 104. According to the Lord, those that are heading toward hell in eternity also suffer God's wrath here in mortality. It states "These are they who suffer the wrath of God on earth."
