Quick! Can you share info about the 3rd major event in the Bible with an unbeliever?

1.God created the universe.

2.The Fall of Adam and Eve.

False Prophecies of Brigham Young

Journal of Discourses 7:289; “From the day that the Priesthood was taken from the earth to the winding-up scene of all things, every man and woman must have the certificate of Joseph Smith, junior, as a passport to their entrance into the mansion where God and Christ are—I with you and you with me.
