Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! Dive a bit deeper into your Come, Follow Me study about the fall of Adam and Eve and what it means for us today.
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
It was Eve who first transgressed the limits of Eden in order to initiate the conditions of mortality. Her act, whatever its nature, was formally a transgression but eternally a glorious necessity to open the doorway toward eternal life. Adam showed his wisdom by doing the same.—Dallin H. Oaks
