Response to rug (Original post)

2. I wonder how Mormons think that works.

I assume the only need to baptize someone posthumously is due to the fear that God is a bureaucrat that won't let a person into heaven unless all the forms are filled out correctly and submitted in triplicate (or some metaphysical equivalent thereof).

So do they think that the person is roasting in hell until they file the right paperwork?

Or do they assume God is omniscient with regards to spacetime and knows that the Mormon clergy are going to baptize someone later on and he lets them into heaven on a contingency clause?

It all seems a bit confusing to me.
