  1. I was wondering if you could help me with this passage. Page 31 of Gospel Principles says, "Because of the witness of the Holy Ghost to Eve, she said, “Were it not for our transgression we never should have had seed, and never should have known good and evil, and the joy of our redemption, and the eternal life which God giveth unto all the obedient” (Moses 5:11). Was this also true for Heavenly Mother when she was just a woman? If yes, was it another Holy Ghost who gave her a witness? Didn't Eve already know before the Holy Ghost witnessed to her that they would eventually have seed when God told them to be fruitful and multiply before the Fall or was she already doubting God after hearing that commandment? Seeing that the witness of having children was only given to Eve, when did Adam first realize he would have children? Or did he really believe God when He commanded him to be fruitful and multiply? Thanks, Jim
  2. Page 28 says, "The earth and everything on it were created spiritually before they were created physically (see Moses 3:5). In planning to create the physical earth, Christ ... said to those who were with him, We will go down, for there is space there ... Then he created the animals - fish, cattle, insects, and birds of all kinds. These animals had the ability to reproduce their own kind." Does a spirit earth consume space like a physical earth consumes space? Since the earth was created spiritually first, why did Jesus supposedly have to go somewhere where there was space to make a physical earth? Did the spiritual earth and physical earth occupy two separate spaces so there would be enough space to create the physical version? What about being created physically allowed the animals to procreate before the Fall? The next paragraph continues as "Now the earth was ready for the greatest creation of all - mankind. Our spirits would be given bodies of flesh and blood so they could live on earth." Why did mankind need bodies of flesh and blood to live on earth when Adam and Eve were already living in the Garden of Eden without blood in their veins before the Fall? Thanks, Jim
  3. On page 15 of Gospel Principles it says, "At this council we also learned that because of our weakness all of us would sin." Is fallen human nature the weakness which enables a child to commit his or her first sin? Thanks, Jim

    Begotten and born

    Page 9 of Gospel Principles says, "Man, as a spirit, was begotten and born of heavenly parents, and reared to maturity in the eternal mansions of the Father, prior to coming upon the earth in a temporal [physical] body." I'll include a link that answers this question from I understand the part about being born, but what does the term "begotten" mean in LDS theology since Jesus is called the Only Begotten of the Father in several scriptures (1 John 4:9) and then he is referred to as the first begotten of the dead (Revelation 1:5)? I couldn't find it defined on the LDS website or Thanks, Jim
  5. I teach two year olds at a Christian preschool and one of my kids says this all the time. In fact it is one of the only phrases I understand. I tried replacing it each time he says it with "Oh my stars!" it worked, but he says "stars" very similar to "God" (he talks like a 2 year old). Any ideas for something similar to say instead? "oh my ______"?
