Posts Tagged ‘Adam received the Holy Ghost’

General Conference, ‘Take the Holy Spirit as Your Guide,’ April 2018; “To quicken means to make alive. Just as Christ brings our bodies back to life after physical death through the power of His Resurrection, so can He also quicken us, or make us alive, from spiritual death. In the book of Moses, we read of Adam undergoing this kind of quickening: “[Adam] was baptized, and the Spirit of God descended upon him, and thus he was born of the Spirit, and became quickened in the inner man.” …

Following the feet of the people ahead of you on the path is not enough. We cannot just do and think what others are doing and thinking; we must live a guided life. We must each have our own hand on the iron rod. Then we may go to the Lord with humble confidence, knowing that He “shall lead [us] by the hand, and give [us] answer to [our] prayers.” In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.” – Larry Y. Wilson

Who was the gospel first given to & when? 

The Church teaches that Adam was the first person to ever teach and spread the gospel on earth.  The Mormon Apostle Mark Petersen says this in his book

Adam, Who Is He, pg. 9; “Adam received the holy priesthood and was commanded by the Lord to teach his children the principles of the gospel. Moreover, Adam was baptized for the remission of his sins, for the same principles by which men are saved now were the principles by which men were saved in the beginning. In that day as many as repented and were baptized received the gift of the Holy Ghost by the laying on of hands. Adam made all these things known to his sons and daughters.” (Doctrines of Salvation, Bookcraft, 1956, 3:81-82.)”

2 Thessalonians 2:9-11; “Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.”


My heart seriously grieves for those in the Church like my mother who would believe the tales of these false prophets and false teachers.

Question: who would be there to lay hands on Adam for the gift of the Holy Ghost?  Who would know the word gospel since it wasn’t used until the time of Christ? 

Why would Adam be baptized if the institution of sacrifices had just made its first appearance?

What did Jesus’ words mean in John when He told the disciples He was going to send the Comforter to them if Adam had already received Him?  See John 16:7-8.
