Lehi taught there must be an opposition in all things (2 Nephi 2:11). Meaning: happiness can only exist as long as we have something to compare it with…say, misery or greater happiness. In other words, when Lehi says all things must needs be a compound in one, he means there must be more than one choice or one possibility. Joy can only be understood if we have misery to compare it to. According to Lehi, without the possibility of different choices or experiences, what could not be “brought to pass” (or experienced)? List three pairs of opposites.
According to Lehi if there hadn’t been the choice to not partake of the fruit and the choice to multiply an replenish the earth than there could be no salvation of manking brought to past. Righteousneww could not be brough to pass, nor wickedness, nor holinees nor misery nor good nor bad, life or death, incorruption nor incorruption. Essentially no life.
According to verse 15, in order to bring about his eternal purposes in the end of man (or for mankind), after he created Adam and Eve and other living creatures, what did God create in the Garden of Eden that are considered in opposition (or opposites) to one another? Note: forbidden fruit refers to the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.
God created the tree of knowledge of good and evil in opposition to the tree of life.
Adam and Eve (or anyone, for that matter) cannot exercise their agency unless they have things in opposition…or a choice A, a choice B, or even a choice C and D to choose from. According to Lehi, how do these choices affect us? Note verse 16 carefully.
These choices affect us by giving us the right to act for ourselves.
Why were Adam and Eve given choices or opposites in the Garden of Eden? (to entice them to act or to choose one from the other). Remember, you can’t exercise your agency without them. What were the two commandments given to Adam and Eve?
To multiply and replenish the earth and to not partake of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
You can see how the two trees are in opposition to one another…but, how are the two commandments in opposition to one another, as well. (Again, the opposition or opposites are to entice Adam and Eve to choose one or the other). The plan, of course, was for Adam and Eve to choose to partake of the Knowledge of Good and Evil (and bring about mortality, procreation and death), and to choose to multiply and replenish the earth.
If they do not partake of the fruit then they cannot multiply and replenish the earth, but they are commanded to not partake of the fruit.
According to Lehi, if Adam/Eve had not transgressed and eaten from the Knowledge of Good and Evil, what would have been the consequences?
Adam would not have fallen, there would be no procreation, everything in the garden would have remained in the exact same state.
What was the state in which Adam and Eve had been originally created? Review Moses 3:9. What is a spiritual creation or the state in which God created the earth and Adam and Eve prior to the Fall?
Spiritual physical, they could not die, nor could they procreate
According to Lehi, if Adam had not Fallen and remained as a spiritual creation, what would it have been like?
They would have had no children, and remained innocent, however they would have no joy because they had no misery, and no good because there was no sin.
What does verse 24 teach? You should have a detailed answer to this.
It teaches that the lord does everthing in his own wisdom,and he made the commandments in opposition with the plan that adam and eve must create mankind.
Why did Adam fall?
Adam fell because he partook of the fruit so that he could keep the commandment to stay with eve. Eve partook because she knew that they had to multiply and replenish the earth.
Adam and Eve brought about the third creation, or the Fallen World. What are the characteristics of this creation?
A physical creation, where things die, and can be procreation, sin, joy, happiness,sorrow, and also having to work by the sweat of the brow for the things they needed.
What two characteristics of the Fallen world required the mediation of a Redeemer? What does 2 Nephi 2:26 teach (verse sentence only
1. Knowing good from evil 2. Being free to act for themselves.
Like Adam and Eve, we live in a world of opposites. Opposites, which are necessary to exercise our agency. What is Lehi’s teaching regarding these opposites in verse 27?
We are free to choise all things. We’re free to choose either liberty and eternal life, or captivity and death.
