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 Terminology2February 1840 Discourse, Washington, DC

Encyclopedia of Joseph Smith’s Teachings, p. 237; “Fall of Adam and Eve. I believe in the fall of man, as recorded in the Bible; I believe that God foreknew everything, but did not foreordain everything; I deny that foreordain and foreknow is the same thing. He foreordained the fall of man; but all merciful as He is, He foreordained at the same time, a plan of redemption for all mankind. (Joseph Smith, History of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 7 Vols. 4:78)” – edited by Larry E. Dahl and Donald Q. Cannon [Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1997], also see same entry for this on p. 270

Mormon Decisions 10General Conference, April 2015, “Where Justice, Love, and Mercy Meet”; “I express my gratitude for the Atonement and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and acknowledge events in the divine plan of God that led up to and give meaning to the “love Jesus offers [us]”…Jeffrey Holland

2 Corinthians 11:3-4; “But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus than the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it readily enough.”

Adam and EveLong before I became a Christian I was invited to attend a church service by a friend of mine in Las Vegas.  Both of our husbands were away fighting in the first Gulf War in Iraq (it was November 1990) and we were both expecting babies before the husbands were slated to come back.  At the end of a very long explanation from my friend on why I should attend church with her because I was bringing another life into the world, I relented – with conditions.  I wanted to sit at the back of the congregation so I could get up and leave in a hurry if I didn’t like what they had to say.
