“But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.” – 1 Corinthians 15:20,22
“The simple truth is that we cannot fully comprehend the Atonement and Resurrection of Christ and we will not adequately appreciate the unique purpose of His birth or His death…without understanding that there was an actual Adam and Eve who fell from an actual Eden, with all the consequences that fall carried with it.” – Jeffrey R. Holland
