The LDS church emphasizes genealogy too much +3

Reasons to agree: +3
  1. Life is short. 
  2. Living people need things. 
  3. If we need help from God anyways to do our family history work back to Adam, then that means the pressure is off of us to do it now.
Scriptures that agree: +1
  1. Matt. 8: 21-23 And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead. And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him. And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
Scriptures that disagree: -1
  1. Mal. 4: 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
