Prelude to Creation Part 2 - Moses 1 Moses 1 is a companion chapter to Abraham 3. Both give a prelude to the visions of the Creation and the Garden of Eden.

Prelude to Creation Abraham 3 and Moses 1 are preludes to the Creation and Garden of Eden stories. They set the stage for these dramas and for the doctrines. Importantly, we discover that these chapters are descriptions of visions that both Abraham and Moses receive. Therefore, we can compare them to other scriptural visions for context and underst…

A Very Politically Incorrect Document The Family Proclamation is not what it once was. Originally, it inspired yawns from Church members and seemed like a "nothing burger" in 1995.

The Restored Gospel answers that question and Baptism for the Dead is a big part of that answer. …
