Did you or did you not say
Adultery -"For Latter-day Saints it is defined as sexual intercourse between a married person and someone other than his or her legal and lawful spouse." (BYU Mormon Encyclopedia)
Do you believe this to be true or did you post a statement you believe to be false?
If you believe that adultery is defined as sexual intercourse between any married person and any other person to whom he is not legally married then by the definition that YOU brought up the persons YOU cited are themselves forever excluded from the CK.
These are your words, not mine.
You say there is one and only on possible scenario where I can support this opinion. I do not believe the church was in apostasy before it left Nauvoo, or now.
This is the natural and inevitable conclusion of the criteria that YOU brought up. YOUR arguments. Either defend them or retract them because they are irreconcilable with many other fundamental truths and beliefs of the church.
If God commanded someone to live polygamy (lawful or not) I hope they would be obedient to that command.
I shouldn't have to hold your hand and connect the dots but if this is true then either the definition of adultery that you are basing your argument on is not valid or you believe that God commands people to do things that will exclude them from the CK. I know you don't believe in the latter, but your pride seems to preclude you from admitting to the former.
By being obedient you will not be condemned.
Then your definition needs to be refined.
Yes there are many ways to view that quote. And I am not condemning the entire church with my view.
Actually, you are even if you won't admit it. You may not mean to but your logical requires you to. You need to go back and rethink things.
