History of the Church 5:387; “It is not wisdom that we should have all knowledge at once presented before us; but that we should have a little at a time; then we can comprehend it. … Salvation is nothing more nor less than to triumph over all our enemies and put them under our feet.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave…

Nonstop doctrinal contradictions can cause even the most ardent of clear headed thinkers to do a double take.

Behold, this is wisdom, that they may obtain it for an everlasting inheritance.”

 There was an article on LDSLiving recently titled ‘5 Things Every Mormon Should Know About Mother Eve’. As I read it, it made me think of all the things I learned about Eve (and Adam) while in the Mormon Church, and how they conflict with what we learn about them in the bible.

The statements the article makes about Eve are:

 “Eve was one of the “noble and great ones” in the pre-existence.”

“Eve was a partner in the Garden of Eden, not a passive or incompetent participant.”

“Prophets have had visions of Eve in the hereafter.”

“Satan did not deceive Eve.”

“God did not curse Eve after she partook of the fruit.”

 April 11 – Separating wheat from the chaff. Luke 24:36-9 & Acts 1:9-11; “And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. And he said unto the, Why are ye troubled? And why do thought arise in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.”

“And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; which also said, Ye men of Galilee, Why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.”
