January 25 — Creation. Colossians 1:16 “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him”. (more…)

January 8 — Free Agency. Joshua 24:14-15; “Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD. 15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” (more…)

Last week as I was gathering info from the Church’s site, I came across their definition for Adam and Eve. As a heads up, here’s the chain of links I went through to get to what was supposed to be a simple thing…

You can find this info in their section, ‘Lesson Helps for Teaching Children’, and then from there the real info is found in ‘Friend, ‘Our First Parents,’ February 1973’. We’ve taken just a few of the most pertinent things they said. To read their article in full, see link above.

The Church’s definition for both names, (Adam and Eve), is far from correct! For me this is just heartbreaking. Why can’t they just tell the truth???

LDS Lies ~

‘Adam and his wife, Eve, were the first people Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, placed on the newly created earth. Adam’s name means many, for all who have ever lived upon the earth, or who will live upon the earth, are the children of this great and intelligent man. Eve was the first mother of the human family, and her name means mother of all living.’

Journal of Discourses 10:281; “We have been dug out of the mire, been born in sin and shapen in iniquity, as it were, we have been clothed in corruption and mixed up in the abominations of the world, we have come out from a people that did not acknowledge God, and are dishonest in their acts, and it seems almost impossible for us to lay aside our dishonesty and wickedness.” – John Taylor, Great Salt Lake City, October 25, 1861

Women of Mormondom The Women of Mormondom, p. 200; “Who shall number the blasphemies of the sectarian churches against our first grand parents? Ten thousand priests of the serpent have thundered anathemas upon the head of “accursed Adam.”

Appalling, oftentimes, their pious rage. And Eve the holiest, grandest of Mothers has been made a very by-word to offset the frailties of the most wicked and abandoned. Very different is Mormon theology! The Mormons exalt the grand parents of our race. Not even is the name of Christ more sacred to them than the names of Adam and Eve.” – Eliza Roxcy Snow

Mormon Decisions 10Genesis 3:21; “Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.”

Today we’re looking at part of the LDS temple ceremony known as theFig Leaf Apron for Garden Temple Ceremony Garden Endowment Ceremony. Our purpose in doing this is to ask Mormons why they’d celebrate the sin of Adam and Eve. We’re only posting the part of this section that pertains to our subject matter, but if you’d like to read it in full you can do so by clicking on this link.

stickman thinking 3While organizing my endless list of quotes I came across our entry on Witchcraft which got me to thinking…

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?

Old-Testament-Gospel-Doctrine-Teachers-Manual-35570000The Church seems to be performing an all out blitz on the Old Testament lately with articles on OT Prophets, the story of Adam and Eve, OT Sunday school lessons, et al.  It’s interesting to see how many ways they can spin the web of lies they try to pawn off on unsuspecting members.

The purpose of their lesson this week is to “help each class member understand that the Fall was a necessary part of Heavenly Father’s plan for us”.

If Adam & Eve Hadn’t Sinned Could They have had Children? 

Mormon Decisions 102 Nephi 2:22-23; “And now, behold, if Adam had not transgressed he would not have fallen, but he would have remained in the garden of Eden. And all things which were created must have remained in the same state in which they were after they were created; and they must have remained forever, and had no end.  23 And they would have had no children; wherefore they would have remained in a state of innocence, having no joy, for they knew no misery; doing no good, for they knew no sin.”

Genesis 2:24, 3:23; “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh…Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.”

Original Sin a Plan of Salvation

“The Atonement: All for All”, Ensign, May 2004, 97; “The Fall was not a disaster. It wasn’t a mistake or an accident. It was a deliberate part of the plan of salvation. We are God’s spirit ‘offspring,’ sent to earth ‘innocent’ of Adam’s transgression. Yet our Father’s plan subjects us to temptation and misery in this fallen world as the price to comprehend authentic joy. Without tasting the bitter, we actually cannot understand the sweet. We require mortality’s discipline and refinement as the ‘next step in [our] development’ toward becoming like our Father. But growth means growing pains. It also means learning from our mistakes in a continual process made possible by the Savior’s grace, which He extends both during and ‘after all we can do’ (2 Nephi 25:23).” – Bruce C. Hafen

Who was Adam in the pre-existence?  

Doctrines of Salvation 1:90; “The first man placed upon the earth was a perfect being, a son of God. He was Michael, the Archangel, who had reached great distinction and power before he ever came to this earth; and who helped to frame this earth while he was yet a spirit, just as our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was a spirit before he was born in Bethlehem.  Michael, after being placed upon this earth, is known as Adam.”

Man has Power within to Become Like God

Doctrines of Salvation 2:35; Man has within him the power, which the Father has bestowed upon him… that eventually he shall become like the Father and the Son; this virtue, wisdom, and knowledge on the part of the faithful does not rob the Father and the Son, but adds to their glory and dominion. Thus it is destined that those who are worthy to become his sons and joint-heirs with our Redeemer, would be heirs of the Father’s kingdom, possessing the same attributes in their perfection, as the Father and the Son now possess.

Adam and Eve Had No Blood

http://scriptures.lds.org/bd/f/2 ; Before the fall, Adam and Eve had physical bodies but no blood. There was no sin, no death, and no children among any of the earthly creations. With the eating of the “forbidden fruit,” Adam and Eve became mortal, sin entered, blood formed in their bodies, and death became a part of life. Adam became the “first flesh” upon the earth (Moses 3: 7), meaning that he and Eve were the first to become mortal. After Adam fell, the whole creation fell and became mortal. Adam’s fall brought both physical and spiritual death into the world upon all mankind (Hel. 14: 16-17).” – Bible Dictionary of the LDS Church
