Do Mormons believe they get their own planet?
This article is a quick addition. It is very incomplete and unreferenced. It serves as a brief introduction to a topic and will be developed, edited, and referenced at a later point in time.
While these things are important they are not the primary topic of this site and therefore may take some time to complete. Resources are provided to additional information at other locations.
No, Mormons do not believe they get their own planet.
This is one of the more widely spread falsehoods of Mormon belief. It is often coupled with the false notion that only Mormon men get to have a planet or allowed into the afterlife. None of this is true.
If you do a search for this you will find that all of the sites that are claiming that Mormons believe they get their own planet are not LDS websites. Why? Because it's not part of LDS doctrine.
But this comes directly from the LDS website for news organizations:
Do Latter-day Saints believe that they will "get their own planet"?
No. This idea is not taught in Latter-day Saint scripture, nor is it a doctrine of the Church. This misunderstanding stems from speculative comments unreflective of scriptural doctrine. Mormons believe that we are all sons and daughters of God and that all of us have the potential to grow during and after this life to become like our Heavenly Father (see Romans 8:16-17). The Church does not and has never purported to fully understand the specifics of Christ's statement that "in my Father's house are many mansions" (John 14:2).
So Mormons believe they can become like their Father in Heaven, but sorry, no planet. Doing a search for "own planet" on the main LDS website in Google returns an entire 1 result about math (at the time this article was written: 9/5/2012). So much for my goal of ruling Kashyyyk.
