The Book of Mormon teaches Christ’s Resurrection as the way in which humanity can overcome our spiritual and physical deaths that were brought about the Fall and our own transgressions, and return to the presence of God to be judged, in our bodies, according to our thoughts, words, and deeds. The Book of Mormon and Bible together clarify that everyone will be resurrected.
