p3Consider that the particular pattern associated with how the Revelators talk about the Alpheus twins invites speculation about whether they were in the subnormal category. Consider how valuable it might be from a universe perspective to have this group represented amongst the apostles of Jesus.
(113:1.1) The teaching about guardian angels is not a myth; certain groups of human beings do actually have personal angels. It was in recognition of this that Jesus, in speaking of the children of the heavenly kingdom, said: “Take heed that you despise not one of these little ones, for I say to you, their angels do always behold the presence of the spirit of my Father.”
(113:1.3) The subnormal minded—those who do not exercise normal will power; those who do not make average decisions. This class embraces those who cannot comprehend God; they lack capacity for the intelligent worship of Deity.
