Pergunta: primeiros líderes mórmons ensinam que o casamento plural era um requisito para a exaltação?
Question: Did early Mormon leaders teach the plural marriage was a requirement for exaltation?
Some 19th century Church leaders taught that plural marriage was a requirement for those wishing to enter the highest degree of the celestial kingdom
To obey the Lord's commands in all things is necessary for exaltation. (Our inevitable failure to live perfectly requires the grace of Christ's atonement.) Members of the Church in, say, 1860 who refused to follow the counsel of prophets and apostles put their spiritual standing in jeopardy. Likewise, members who refuse to obey present counsel are at risk.
