Dear 100 Hour Board,

In Primary I was taught that our spirit bodies look just like our physical ones. Bro. Brinley teaches that our spirit bodies look completely different than our physical ones. None of my Primary teachers backed up their teachings with references, and Bro. Brinley didn't either. Has anyone said anything definitive on the matter? Do we know who's right?

A: Well, I don't know if I'd call it definitive, but the stories I have heard of people passing through the veil & then returning tell of them seeing people in spirit form that they knew - they had to recognize them somehow, so I'd assume that our spirits look like our physical bodies. Another thing to remember is that while it can make an interesting conversation, what your spirit looks like isn't something that affects your salvation, so don't stress out about it too much.
