Resurrection, Judgement, and Immortality

 Because of Jesus Christ's atonement and rising from death, we will all be one day resurrected as well. This is a free gift that will be given to everybody - regardless of if they are good or evil. To be resurrected means that our bodies and spirits will again come together and will never be separated. We will never again have pain or sicknesses, and our bodies will be in their "perfect state" (Alma 11:43-44). In other words, through the resurrection, all people will become immortal—they will live forever. Although immortality is a free gift, eternal life is not. Eternal life is a gift that is given only to those who obey Christ's gospel. It is the highest state that we can achieve. It comes to those who are freed from sin and suffering through the Atonement of Christ. It is exaltation, which means living with God forever in eternal families. It is to know God and Jesus Christ and to experience the life they enjoy.
  After we are resurrected, we will be brought into God’s presence to be judged. God is a fair and a just God. Justice is the unchanging law that brings consequences for our actions. However, our Savior Jesus Christ satisfied the demands of justice when he died for us. He made it possible for all of us to be clean from sin so that we can stand spotless before God. When we are judged, we will remember perfectly our righteousness and our guilt. If we have repented, we will receive mercy. We will be rewarded according to our works and our desires.
