In contemplating the divine order, can we see a pattern of truth for “last day events”? We know that flesh must be subject to the spirit. This means that the mind has authority over the body. We know that whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer—mind over body. We have heard the teaching from the Sermon on the Mount that makes us aware that lusting after a woman in our hearts is adultery—mind over body. Having an incorrect mental view of the Father and Son is idolatry. Idolatry takes place in the mind before it is manifested in physical actions. In fact, this principle of mind over body seems to aptly fit all of the commandments—not just the prohibitions against murder, adultery, and idolatry.
