Why do Mormons accept and applaud Adam and Eve’s rejection of God while at the same time teach that behaving inappropriately isn’t acceptable?
As everyone knows, today marks the anniversary of Joseph Smith’s death. While I’ve been reading the various e-mails they reminded me of how it once filled me with pride and a great sense of indignation that anyone would kill God’s prophet.
It never crossed my mind as a Mormon what his death did for me personally. That thought didn’t cross my mind until after I’d left my heritage so I’m posing the question here for the Mormons today.
The other day I was watching a television show called “What Would You Do?” hosted by John Quiñones. The show is set up with actors playing out a variety of scenarios to see what the reaction would be of the average person watching things transpire.
This particular episode was about a couple of young kids who were drunk and getting into their vehicle to drive home. The show works alongside the police so they already know what’s happening if or when anyone should call to report the would be drunk drivers and after a few minutes the cameras roll in with the host letting the good Samaritan in on the secret.

“Diversity of opinion does not necessitate intolerance of spirit, nor should it embitter or set rational beings against each other. The Christ taught kindness, patience, and charity. Our religion is not hostile to real science. That which is demonstrated, we accept with joy; but vain philosophy, human theory, and mere speculations of men, we do not accept nor do we adopt anything contrary to divine revelation or to good common sense. But everything that tends to right conduct, that harmonizes with sound morality and increases faith in Deity, finds favor with us no matter where it may be found.”
Enos’ Age Defying Lifespan
Psalm 90:10: “The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.”
