Adam and Eve Had No Blood – Mormon Quotes

http://scriptures.lds.org/bd/f/2Before the fall, Adam and Eve had physical bodies but no blood. There was no sin, no death, and no children among any of the earthly creations. With the eating of the “forbidden fruit,” Adam and Eve became mortal, sin entered, blood formed in their bodies, and death became a part of life. Adam became the “first flesh” upon the earth (Moses 3: 7), meaning that he and Eve were the first to become mortal. After Adam fell, the whole creation fell and became mortal. Adam’s fall brought both physical and spiritual death into the world upon all mankind (Hel. 14: 16-17).” – Bible Dictionary of the LDS Church

Genesis 2:24Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Note:  In Hebrew the word flesh means body.  So if they were commanded to multiply while still in the Garden of Eden how could they have done so without blood?  The Bible tells us that life is in the blood.  See Gen. 9:4 & 2:7.  The Hebrew word for soul is “nephesh” in 2:7.  It means a “breathing creature”.

Adam and Eve Had No Blood

Answers to Gospel Questions 3:100; When Adam and Eve were placed in the Garden of Eden, there was no blood in their bodies. Their lives were quickened by spirit; therefore they were in a state where they could have lived forever, and so likewise could every other mortal creature. (II Nephi 2:2-25.) When Adam fell, the change came upon all other living things and even the earth itself became mortal, and all things including the earth were redeemed from death through the atonement of Jesus Christ.

Genesis 2:7And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Note:  The Hebrew word for soul is “nephesh”.  It means a “breathing creature”. 

Adam and Eve Had No Blood

Preach My Gospel, pg. 50; When first teaching this doctrine, do not teach everything you know about it.  Explain very simply that God chose two of His children, Adam and Eve, to become the first parents on earth.  After their transgression they were subject to both sin and death.  By themselves they could not return to live with Heavenly Father.  The Lord spoke to Adam and taught him the plan of salvation and redemption through the Lord Jesus Christ.  By following that plan, Adam and his family could have joy in this life and return to live with God (see Alma 18:36; 22:12-14).

Matthew 10:26-27Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.  27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

Lie?  Since when is lying condoned by God?
