Living off the grid:

If the Church teaches people to be self-sufficient, out-of-debt, not into vanity or selfishness, in the world but not of the world, then why doesn't the Church just have it's people live completely off the land or off the grid like in much of the ancient times and when the Church tried to establish ...

Re: Confusion about Adam and Eve:

I was just stating my belief of how I was originally taught the fall of Adam and Eve was a literal event. That doesn't bother me that different people believe differently about the event.

Re: Confusion about Adam and Eve:

I believe the story was to be taken literally. Parts of it don't make sense, but I guess that's why we're supposed to accept Gospel teachings on faith.

Re: Confusion about Adam and Eve:

Confusion about Adam and Eve:

Re: Nauvoo Expositor Destruction

If the fall of Adam and Eve was supposed to happen to bring us into mortality to become like Heavenly Father, then why didn't Heavenly Father just say to them partake of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil?
