Mormon Heaven: Everything the Prophets Didn’t Tell You Joseph Smith said that if we knew how great heaven is going to be, we’d kill ourselves to get there. Then he cautiously told us almost nothing about it. Later prophets have been even less help, unwilling to venture even so far as an opinion of whether there is progression between the kingdoms. So, although Mormons know more about heaven than do other Christians, it’s not much more than what is postulated by Islam, and not enough better to encourage suicide. Dr. Jolley’s tautology fills in the gaps, creating aversion of heaven inspired by Mark Twain, Pogo, and (perhaps least of all) the prophets.
