Adam & Eve are the First Christians Part Three

Updated on August 14, 2018

Rodric has been a member of Christ's Church since he was 15 years old. He has a lot to say about his religion.

Adam, Eve and all of their posterity will not have to suffer for sins because Jesus suffered spiritual death, which is separation from God--He suffered for all sins.

Upon the cross at Calvary, they crucified the Lord. And when He cried before the people He gave up His Spirit, (that is, Jesus Christ) and only His broken body remained. His spirit and His body separated. On the third day, Christ took up His body again.

As a gift to all of mankind, because He paid for our sins, all of our wages, we have no reason to remain dead though we will die. All humanity will live again as a gift to the good and bad.

Wages of Grace

The only thing they must do is work by faith to accept the commandment of Christ through the ordinances and principles of Faith, Repentance, Baptism by immersion in water, receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost through the laying on of hands, and enduring to the end of mortality in the faith.

Spiritual Death

Spiritual death is separation from God the Father. As mentioned before, Adam and Eve were banned from the presence of God. All mankind will also suffer that ban. Christ overcame that portion of death by suffering for all sins in Gethsemane.

Physical Death

Next, Christ overcame physical death when He took up His body again after three days of work in the world of the spirits. Christ did not deserve death because He lacked sins of His own to forsake, so nothing could prevent Him from rising.

Master Advocate

I imagine He will speak for us and say,

"I, who am Holy and without blemish, spot, or justification for death, do present to You, Father of all, this Christian to enter the Heavens and to rule as a joint heir with Me. I have paid for his (or her) sins and I am worthy to seek life with him (or her)."

I imagine The Father will then grant permission saying,

"Let him (or her) that is redeemed enter into My rest and inherit power in My kingdom for Jesus Christ's sake, Who without blemish or justification for death through sin did atone for this man or woman that he (or she) may enter into perfection and glory with Me.

Conversation with Angels

Source

These words are taken from scriptures with the intent to help you imagine an Angel declaring to Adam and Eve to have faith in Jesus Christ.

Angel declaring unto Adam and Eve

"Yea, even so he shall be led, crucified, and slain, the flesh becoming subject even unto death, the will of the Son being swallowed up in the will of the Father." Mosiah 15:7

I Imagine Father Adam Saying

"Our sins wounded His soul and our lies wounded His heart! He felt the weight of our secrets as He suffered for them. Praise God, He suffered that He could take them and remove them from our lives!"

I imagine Mother Eve saying,

"Were it not for our transgression we would not have joy in posterity; and we would not know redemption from sin. We would not know the meaning of the love of God. I bless the Plan of Happiness and Our Son through Mary, Jesus, who will save us from our transgression and our sins and our children's sin down to the last generation of time."

Angel declaring

"And thus God breaketh the bands of death, having gained the victory over death; giving the Son power to make intercession for the children of men—" Mosiah 15:8

Adam joys and expresses,

"Death hath no sting for it is only a long sleep and then we awake! Glory to God on high! We will not be separated from God forever, but we have an intercessory Child from God for entrance back into our home with Father."

Angel declaring

"Having ascended into heaven, having the bowels of mercy; being filled with compassion towards the children of men; standing betwixt them and justice; having broken the bands of death, taken upon Him their iniquity and their transgressions, having redeemed them, and satisfied the demands of justice." Mosiah 15:9

Imagine the first parents hearing something similar to these words that though death comes, it does not come immediately for partaking of the fruit, but they will be given the law of sacrifice. Eve will submit to Adam willingly as he follows the commands of God--not by force.

What do you think?

Jesus Christ created the Earth, so he died for his creation. Does that make sense?

      So are you saying "sweating some blood" is the ultimate sacrifice? Or dying while knowing that you will live again after three days is so awesome. I just do not get that.

      I am amazed that young people like yourself do not take science seriously. Scientist all over the world have proven the world and humanity much older than 6000 years. The story of Adam and Eve is romantic and intriguing but that's all it is a story.

      It was a great experience putting my personal beliefs out for all to see how I unite my faith in Christ with the Eden story.
