Zebedee Coltrin Once in the wake of coming back from a mission, Bro. Coltrin met Brother Joseph in Kirtland, who inquired as to whether I didn\'t wish to run with him to a meeting at New Portage. The gathering comprised of Presidents Joseph Smith, Sidney Rigdon, Oliver Cowdery and myself." Next morning at New Portage, … Joseph appeared to have a far away look in his eyes, or was taking a gander at a separation and in no time he, Joseph, ventured between Brothers Cowdery and Coltrin and taking them by the arm, said, "Let\'s take a walk." They went to a spot where there was some wonderful grass and grapevines and swampbeech joined. President Joseph Smith then said, "Let us pray." They every one of the three asked thus - Joseph, Oliver, and Zebedee. Sibling Joseph then said, "Now brethren, we will see some visions." Joseph set down on the ground on his back and extended his arms and the two brethren lay on them. The sky steadily opened, and they saw a brilliant royal position, on a round establishment, something like a beacon, and on the honored position were two matured personages, having white hair, and dressed in white articles of clothing. They were the two most excellent and immaculate examples of humanity he ever saw. Joseph said, "They are our first guardians, Adam and Eve."

Bro. Robert Millett 1-Everything has not been uncovered. 2-We can\'t generally tell which things are exacting and which are allegorical. - For occasion: Rib or no rib? 3-We don\'t know the amount Adam and Eve knew and comprehended before their fall. Bruce R. McConkie "our insight about the Creation is constrained. We don\'t have a clue about the how and why and when for goodness\' sake. Our limited impediments are with the end goal that we couldn\'t understand them on the off chance that they were uncovered to us in all their grandness, fulness, and flawlessness." Bruce R. McConkie so, to say that Adam and Eve shared of the taboo natural product is to say that they "complied with whatever the law was that brought mortality into being." Bro. Millett Like every one of us, the information of their premortal presence was hidden. In that sense, then, they were required, as are we, to stroll by confidence. In any case, not at all like us, they strolled and conversed with God, held quick fellowship with him, and were educated by him.

Ted E. Gibbons: So far as we probably am aware, one and only thing in the patio nursery was taboo to Adam and his better half. Lucifer took Eve\'s regard for that one thing . There were 876 trees (pretty much) in the patio nursery and they could eat of any or every one of them, aside from that one, and the villain centered Eve\'s consideration precisely there. As he generally will. One of his approaches to get into our souls and psyches is to bring up the things we can\'t do. Are there any motion pictures you ought not go to? Are there words you ought not say? Are there things you ought not do?

The Lord to Joseph Smith After the loss of the 116 pages And view, how oft you have transgressed the charges and the laws of God, and have gone ahead in the influences of men.

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland If there is one regret I can\'t tolerate, it is poor people, miserable, shriveled cry, "Well, that\'s simply the way I am." If you need to talk about debilitation, that is one that disheartens me. I\'ve heard it from an excessive number of individuals who need to sin and call it brain research . What\'s more, I utilize the word sin to cover an incomprehensible scope of propensities, some apparently sufficiently guiltless, that by and by bring demoralization and uncertainty and sadness… … Repentance is difficult or effortless or advantageous. It is an intense glass from hellfire. In any case, just Satan, who abides there, would have you surmise that a fundamental and required affirmation is more disagreeable than lasting living arrangement . Just he would say, "You can\'t change. You won\'t change. It\'s too long and too difficult to change. Surrender. Give in. Try not to atone. You are only the way you are." That is an untruth conceived of edginess. Try not to get bulldozed by it. ( In Times of Trouble, 1980 BYU Devotional)
