What is the Mormon “Son of Perdition”?

What is the Mormon “Son of Perdition”?
I know the Mormons are all blocked from “Questions” questions. So I thought I’d re-ask it for the Mormons to answer 🙂
I just copied and pasted the same question “Questions” asked, so all the blocked Mormons can answer it. I’m not seeing his question anymore, maybe he deleted it or maybe Y/A is being glitchy again. He often asks Mormon related questions that Mormons can’t answer.

I don’t get you.

You either don’t understand anything about the religion you profess to believe in….or you ask things you already know the answers to. i can’t figure out if you’re completely ignorant, or just a fan of wasting your own time.

    “Latter-day revelations speak of hell in at least two ways. First, it is another name for spirit prison, a temporary place in the postmortal world for those who died without a knowledge of the truth or those who were disobedient in mortality. Second, it is the permanent location of Satan and his followers and the sons of perdition, who are not redeemed by the Atonement of Jesus Christ. ” (lds.org Gospel topics)

    I’ve never heard of this before. I always thought Sons of Perdition are those that have a testimony of Christ and the Holy Ghost and then in willfully turn in rebellion against God.

    That’s what I’ve always understood what Sons of Perdition are. They are also thrown into outer darkness.

    I did a search and found this article.

    Are you asking about Book of Mormon Sons of Perdition/ Anti-Christ’s Alyssia? I am not really sure about your question.

    Perdition – CAIN, DEVIL, SONS OF PERDITION. Two persons, Cain and Satan, have received the awesome name-title Perdition. The name signifies that they have no hope whatever of any degree of salvation, that they have wholly given themselves up to iniquity, and that any feeling of righteousness whatever has been destroyed in their breasts. Both had great administrative ability and persuasive power in pre-existence, but both were rebellious and iniquitous from eternity. (D. & C. 76:25-27; 2 Ne. 2:17-18.) Both came out in open rebellion against God having a perfect knowledge that their course was contrary to all righteousness.

    Satan was denied a tabernacle for his spirit body, but Cain has gained one, and as a consequence has a position of pre-eminence over the devil. To Cain the Lord said: “Satan desireth to have thee; and it shall be unto thee according to his desire. And thou shalt rule over him; For from this time forth thou shalt be the father of his lies; thou shalt be called Perdition; for thou wast also before the world.” (Moses 5:18-25.)

    Sons of Perdition – CAIN, DAMNATION, DEVIL, HELL, PERDITION, SPIRITUAL DEATH, UNPARDONABLE SIN. Lucifer is Perdition. He became such by open rebellion against the truth, a rebellion in the face of light and knowledge. Although he knew God and had been taught the provisions of the plan of salvation, he defied the Lord and sought to enthrone himself with the Lord’s power. (Moses 4:1-4.) He thus committed the unpardonable sin. In rebellion with him were one-third of the spirit hosts of heaven. These all were thus followers (or in other words sons) of perdition. They were denied bodies, were cast out onto the earth, and thus came the devil and his angels – a great host of sons of perdition.

    Those in this life who gain a perfect knowledge of the divinity of the gospel cause, a knowledge that comes only by revelation from the Holy Ghost, and who then link themselves with Lucifer and come out in open rebellion, also become sons of perdition. Their destiny, following their resurrection, is to be cast out with the devil and his angels, to inherit the same kingdom in a state where “their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.” (D. & C. 76:32-49; 29:27-30; Heb. 6:4-8; 2 Pet. 2:20-22; 2 Ne. 9:14-16; Doctrines of Salvation, vol. 1, pp. 47-49; vol. 2, pp. 218-225.)

    Joseph Smith said: “All sins shall be forgiven, except the sin against the Holy Ghost; for Jesus will save all except the sons of perdition. (Teachings, p. 358.)

    D&C 76:25- 26, 32, 43
    25 And this we saw also, and bear record, that an angel of God who was in authority in the presence of God, who rebelled against the Only Begotten Son whom the Father loved and who was in the bosom of the Father, was thrust down from the presence of God and the Son, 26 And was called Perdition, for the heavens bwept over him—he was Lucifer, a son of the morning.

    32 They are they who are the asons of bperdition, of whom I say that it had been better for them never to have been born;

    43 Who aglorifies the Father, and saves all the works of his hands, except those sons of bperdition who deny the Son after the Father has revealed him.

  • joshsy says:

    Perdition comes from the latin root for lost.

    Sons of perdition would be those who are lost eternally by willful rebellion of Christ when they have a sure witness of Christ.

    Joseph Smith described it like staring into the sun and proclaiming that it doesn’t exist. It’s not a designation for those who stop believing or separate themselves from the church; it would be like if a prophet who had a clear knowledge of Christ denied Him, not the church or something else but Christ. It’s not accumulated by sins either.

    For these souls who choose eternal separation from God they have no part in a glory by spiritual reconciliation. those who have lived on earth will receive an immortal body but one without any glory. Their eternal abode will be cold and dark without any joy as they denied the one who gives true joy to all who will accept it. Those who rejected Christ before this world began will likewise face a hopeless future subject to Satan and his angles void of joy while they reap the sin and anger they sought out.

    Lot of good answers already.

    One thing to add, I think I remember hearing that a son of perdition is somebody who would nail the Savior to the cross, knowing exactly what he was doing and who he was doing it to.
