Women of Mormondom, p. 541 “Paul, in the egotism of man’s apostleship, commanded, “Let the woman be silent in the church.”

The prophet Joseph corrected Paul, and made woman a voice in the church, and endowed her with an apostolic ministry. The chief faith of the Mormon women concerning themselves is that they are called with a holy calling to raise up a righteous seed unto the Lord a holy nation a people zealous of good works. The Mormon women have a great truth here.” (more…)

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

earth-1 The Women of Mormondom, p. 178; “This earth is but an atom in the immensities of creations. Innumerable worlds have been peopled with “living souls” of the order of mankind; innumerable worlds have passed through their probations; innumerable worlds have been redeemed, resurrected, and celestialized. Hell-loving apostles of the sects were sending ninety-nine hundredths of this poor, young, forlorn earth to the bottomless pit. The Mormon prophet was finding out grand old universes, in exaltation with scarcely the necessity of losing a soul.

The spirit of Mormonism is universal salvation. Those who are not saved in one glory, may be saved in another.” – Eliza Roxcy Snow

Nanshe 1The Women of Mormondom, pp. 198-199; “The fall is simple. Our immortal parents came down to fall…came down to give birth to mortal tabernacles for a world of spirits. … Eve, then, came down to be the Mother of a world…capable of dying at the very beginning to give life to her offspring, that through mortality the eternal life of the Gods might be given … She was…The first person in the trinity of Mothers.”

Joshua 23:6-8; “Be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that is written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside therefrom to the right hand or to the left; 7 That ye come not among these nations, these that remain among you; neither make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause to swear by them, neither serve them, nor bow yourselves unto them: 8 But cleave unto the LORD your God, as ye have done unto this day.”

Mormon Decisions 10Women of Mormondom, p. 191; “Brightest among these spirits, and nearest in the circle to our Father and Mother in heaven (the Father being Adam), were Seth, Enoch, Noah, and Abraham, Moses, David, and Jesus Christ-Smith Joseph Eliza Roxcy Snow

These are the sons and daughters of Adam-the Ancient of Days-the Father and God of the whole human family. These are the sons and daughters of Michael, who is Adam, the father of the spirits of all our race. These are the sons and daughters of Eve, the Mother of a world.” – Eliza Roxcy Snow

Mormon Decisions 10Women of Mormondom, 179, 191; “Brightest among these spirits, and nearest in the circle to our Father and Mother in heaven (the Father being Adam), were Seth, Enoch, Noah and Abraham, Moses, David, and Jesus Christ – indeed that glorious cohort of men and women, whose lives have left immortal records in the world’s history. … These are the sons and daughters of Adam–the Ancient of Days–the Father and God of the whole human family. These are the sons and daughters of Michael, who is Adam, the father of the spirits of all our race. These are the sons and daughters of Eve, the Mother of a world. What a practical Unitarianism is this! The Christ is not dragged from his heavenly estate, to be mere mortal, but mortals are lifted up to his celestial plane. He is still the God-Man; but he is one among many brethren who are also God-Men. Moreover, Jesus is one of a grand order of Saviours. Every world had its distinctive Saviour, and every dispensation its Christ. There is a glorious Masonic scheme among the Gods. The everlasting orders come down to us with their mystic and official names. The heavens and the earths have a grand leveling; not by pulling down celestial spheres, but by lifting up of mortal spheres.” – Edward Tullidge & Eliza R. Snow
