In Oaks closing talk he clarified that no one will be forced into being sealed to anyone else.

I had long understood this to be corporation doctrine, but after reading many posts here I realized many people thought differently.

The recent changes regarding women being sealed to multiple men may reflect Oaks influence in matters.

This Conference appears to be Oaks's coming out party. Suddenly he starts speaking compassionately, and then he gets to do the keynote closing address.

The Q15 obviously thinks Nelson's on the way out.

And this is 100% opposite from what women have been told for the last 200 years. They have been told in no uncertain terms that sealing means forever. No matter what. Or am I mistaken?

Sealings were an excuse for Joseph Smith and other church leaders to justify their affairs. The temple became a place of where you swore oaths of secrecy. It was an insider’s club of adulterers using spiritual sealings to justify sex outside of their civil marriages.

There are no sealings in the Bible. The temple was a place to store the ark of the covenant and a place where sacrifices were offered.

Heaven is described as a paradise. Of course Mormons have created a detailed description of heaven and you better do what the leaders say and you better pay or you will lose your spouse and family in the next life.
