Contradictions in Joseph Smith’s Revelations about Adam

13 March

3-in-1D&C 1:31; “For I the Lord cannot look upon sin with the least degree of allowance.”

Doctrines of Salvation 1:121; “By many he has beenDoctrines of Salvation severely criticized because of his fall, but Latter-day Saints, through modern revelation, have learned that such was necessary in order that man should have his agency and, through the various vicissitudes he has to pass, receive a knowledge of both good and evil, without which it would be impossible for him to gain the exaltation prepared for him…”

James 1:13; “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man.”

If God can’t look upon sin with any allowance, then what’s up with Smith’s revelation that Adam had to sin so we could all be born, and receive our ‘free agency’?

Furthermore, if Adam is the Mormon god, wouldn’t he already have a guarantee of exaltation? Why would he have to go through the learning process all over again?
