Temporal Marriage and the Resurrection

1. The Sadducee's believed there is no resurrection, no spirit, or angel. I believe that that means that the Sadducee's question was sincere, they were truly curious as to what would happen since they believed there was no resurrection.
2. Matthew 22:30 does not say there will be no eternal marriage in the resurrection just that no marriages will be performed, there is a difference because marriage will be eternal we know that but that is why it is so important to go to the temple in the life.

  • "In the resurrection there will be no marrying nor giving in marriage; for all questions of marital status must be settled before that time, under the authority of the Holy Priesthood, which holds the power to seal in marriage for both time and eternity."
  • Doctrine and Covenants 132:15-16 help us understand Matthew 22:30 because it goes into much more depth about how it's not that there is no marriage in the resurrection but that we have to bind that marriage on Earth in order for there to be an eternal marriage. 
  • I feel like the main reason there is not marriage in the resurrection is because we are commanded to have temple marriages here and we have to live worthy to have those and continue to live worthy which shows our obedience and dedication to the Lord whereas if we knew we could just get married in the resurrection we wouldn't strive as hard to live worthy and make that covenant now.
