Semi-protected edit request on 9 May 2016[edit]

Incorrect doctrine is being taught in this article. I have been an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for over twenty-five years.

Under the section: Other distinctive religious teachings there is the following statement:

The atonement of Christ saves unbaptized people who die without a knowledge of the gospel,[81][82] including children who die without baptism.[83]

Wording should be changed to following: The atonement of Christ may save unbaptized people who die without a knowledge of the gospel,[81][82] including children who die without baptism.[83]

The Lord Jesus Christ will have all come unto Him, but He will not save all unbaptized people who die without a knowledge of the gospel. There are some who will want to choose the lower kingdoms of glory. Please correct the article to reflect true Latter-Day Saint doctrine. We believe that through the atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel. (talk) 04:35, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

I'm not sure that I agree with the proposed change. The comment seems to be focused more on the doctrine of the LDS Church than the content of the Book of Mormon. LDS Church doctrine is often more "developed" or detailed than what is in the Book of Mormon. This is because the church has adopted other scriptures since the publication of the Book of Mormon and believes in continuing revelation through living prophets. The suggestion adequately describes LDS Church doctrine, but the Book of Mormon says something slightly different. Good Ol’factory (talk) 01:01, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
