I believe that you are referring to the theory that the original sin was sex. This, however, is not Biblically true. Before the fall, God said: And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every ...

Mormons believe both passages, (1) That Adam and Eve were commanded to multiply (Genesis 1:28). (2) Unless these partook of the fruit of the tree of knowledge Adam and Eve could not have children (2 Nephi 2:23). And along with other Christians, they also believe (3) God commanded them not to partake of the tree of knowledge of good and evil (Genesis ...

God created humans with mud and gave him the breath of life. He named him Adam, gave him a partner and made Eden garden for them. Will God do this if humans were fallen angels?

Sin wasn't inherently in the world. Sin in disobeying God is what caused us to lose perfection. Since man was created perfect, we know that sin had to come through man. The topic of Satan as it is involved in inherit sin is tricky. Satan may have had the desire for worship even before man was created. Man was a way of fulfilling that desire, so Satan took ...

According to St. Paul: Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned. (Romans 5:12) Regardless of your belief as to whether or not the creation account is allegorical, scripture clearly teaches that before Adam and Eve had taken the "forbidden fruit" the created ...
