When we think of terrible people on earth like Hitler, it makes one wonder just where will they end up? Doesn’t it seem the Telestial World is too good for them?
There are so many wonderful scriptures that display the love and mercy God has for his children and we often underestimate that fact.
With our limited understanding of such love, we fall into a trap where we speculate on people’s final reward (destination) without knowing all of the facts. IF Hitler makes it to the telestial kingdom as his final reward, then I trust that God, even Heavenly Father, is a just God and that He knows all of His children (even the evil doers).
“Our heavenly Father is more liberal in His views, and boundless in His mercies and blessings, than we are ready to believe or receive; and at the same time more terrible to the workers of iniquity, more awful in the executions of His punishments, and more ready to detect in every false way, than we are apt to suppose Him to be.” (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, page 257).
I understand being concerned about such people making it to a degree of glory, and that would be, and, is only possible through the atonement of Jesus Christ. Instead of focusing on the negative and horrors many people have made, let’s see the beauty and power of the atonement. We may never be able to fully grasp the magnitude of the atonement, however, it is real. Once the veil of forgetfulness is removed, we’ll be able to better understand God’s plan and how we fit within it. In the mean time, let’s focus on the positive and let God deal with the rest.
