believe Adam and Eve committed a serious sin when they ate of the tree
of knowledge of good and evil. However, latter-day scriptures help us
understand that their fall was a necessary step in the plan of life
and a great blessing to all of us. Because of the Fall, we are blessed
with physical bodies, the right to choose between good and evil, and
the opportunity to gain eternal life. None of these privileges would
have been ours had Adam and Eve remained in the garden." (31110,
