Doctrines of Salvation 1:95;“ADAM SPOKE CELESTIAL LANGUAGE. The first man placed upon this earth was an intelligent being, created in the image of God, possessed of wisdom and knowledge, with power to communicate his thoughts in a language, both oral and written, which was superior to anything to be found on the earth today. This may sound very sweeping and dogmatic to those who hold to the other view, but it is not any more so than their statements to the contrary. Moreover, I do not say it of myself, but merely repeat what the Lord has said; and surely the Creator, above all others, ought to know!” – Joseph Fielding Smith
Genesis 11:1; “And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.”
Without beating around the bush, Adam spoke Hebrew!
Scripture doesn’t lend itself to advocating anything, but Hebrew. When the Lord brought the animals to Adam so he could name them (Gen. 2:19), the narrative gives no indication the vernacular suddenly changed. The meaning of Adam’s name comes from the Hebrew language, as does Eve’s name.
The first time we see anything in scripture concerning language is at the tower of Babel, not before. Nothing in the text suggests anything outside of what lies therein.
A great article on this subject can be read at dawnbible.com. I’ve not read this entire site, and therefore, cannot vouch for anything outside of this particular article. With that said, there’s a lot to be learned from the evidence this gentleman clearly laid out which advocated nothing but Hebrew. It’s well worth the time spent just scanning over the great work he provided!
The bottom line in all this? It goes to show yet again that every subject matter has been twisted to Joe Smith’s ideologies, and not a sound foundation in the work of the One True God of the Bible!
