First, a timeline. The prohibition on incest was not given until well after creation. At least as far as traditions that believe Genesis to be a historical account are concerned, Adam and Eve were the first two humans on earth, they procreated, had a whole bunch of sons and daughters, some of which paired. For more on this see: Did Adam and Eve's ...

I like your question. It is well thought out and sincere. As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I strive to have a close relationship with my God.

I believe we can be friends of God. (And not just because I'm a fan of the song) Jesus tells us if we do what he commands we are his friends. John 15:13-15 NIV 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does ...

Working in unison, living in unity. Mark 10:8 8 and the two will become ·one body [as though they were one person; T one flesh; Gen. 2:24]’. So they are no longer two, but one. John 10:16 16 I have other sheep that are not in this ·flock [fold; pen; C a reference to future Gentile followers of Christ], and I must bring them also. They will ...

The context of this verse: The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them. The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. The infant will play near the cobra’s den, and the young ...

Your question is one that I frequently encounter especially from teenagers. And usually I find that the real question they want answered is 'Is there someone God created to be my soul mate for life?' Of course neither I nor anyone else except God himself can answer that question. However I will be happy to tell you what Scriptures say about the subject. Mar ...

You need to make sure that you are in the right environment to meet other single people. So if the service you are attending has very few young single people of the opposite sex then you are obviously in the wrong place to begin with. The only way to fix this is put yourself in the right environment which may mean switching services or switching churches. ...
