Mortal - Truth in Love Ministry

Dictionary of Mormonese


Mormons include the ability to have children in their definition of mortal. They claim that Adam and Eve’s fall was a blessing since it made mankind mortal (able to have children). “When Adam and Eve were placed in the Garden of Eden they were not yet mortal. They were not able to have children. … Their physical condition changed as a result of their eating the forbidden fruit. As God had promised, they became mortal. They were able to have children” (Gospel Principles, pp. 30f.).
