Handbook of the Restoration, pg. 351; “In the beginning, man was with God, a child of God, begotten by him. He has a divine pedigree. In the pre-existent, spiritual domain, as a son or daughter of the divine Father, he increased in knowledge and power and grew in spiritual stature. At length he was prepared for the earth career and willing to accept its conditions. Man is not an accidental or transient invader of earth. Instead, he is a creature of plan and progress.” – Samuel Bennion
Genesis 2:7; “Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.”
Pedigree? Are we talking about dogs or humans?
