The reason for Easter celebration is Jesus Christ was worthy enough to be able to use His powers inherited from His Father, the God of this Universe, combined with his mortality, inherited from His mother, to overcome the powers of death and darkness, and be resurrected to Eternal Life ... thereby opening the way for the rest of mortality to likewise have this chance. :)

Here's the thing, the abberation of Mormonism is not required to believe what you just wrote for the most part.

Now, the Jesus of the New Testament didn't "inherit powers." He was granted powers.

Big difference. You think your "heavenly father" provided divine semen to Mary, doncha? That provided "powers" to Jesus.

Doncha.

We can discuss this.

Faith in Jesus Christ helps us prepare for the Final Judgment.

Through faithful discipleship to Him and genuine repentance of all our sins, we can be forgiven, and be able to dwell in the presence of God.

Spirit beings have the same bodily form as mortals except that the Spirit body is in perfect form (see Ether 3:16).

Spirits carry with them from earth their attitudes of devotion or antagonism toward things of righteousness (see Alma 34:34). They have the same appetites and desires that they had when they lived on earth.

All Spirits are in adult form. They were adults before their mortal existence, and they are in adult form after death, even if they die as infants or children.

This has been speculated for eons, and is a fascinating topic to be sure... but it still falls short of what's behind the spirits...i.e., that which is beyond all forms...
