Re: Bible question
Not weird to me, Ken - I have studied Mormonism for years.
You may (or may not) know that the idea of the spirit pre-existing the physical body is not unique to LDS; it is also in Jewish mysticism - Kabala.
I don't find the belief to be disturbing in any way, not contrary to any of my personal beliefs, but rather something that is outside the scope of the Bible writing.
Christ told me to arm myself. If you want me disarmed - - Molon Labe.
