Dear 100 Hour Board,

Alma 40:13 says that the place where the spirits of the wicked wait between death and resurrection is outer darkness and there is no mention of spirit prison. Are the places just called by different names here? I always thought after death the righteous and wicked spirits went to paradise and prison, respectively, and that after the final judgment, resurrected people were assigned to a kingdom or to outer darkness. Can you help me understand?

A: Dear Anon~

The place being talked about is Spirit Prison. See the next verse.
