background image Next Assignment due on the15th - what has been the position of the church in regards to organic evolution?  “The brethren argue sometimes.  Some people would kill me for saying something like that but hopefully your testimonies can handle that.  
Oh, 
hopefully , that sounds awful! Yeah you guys are all gonna die  tomorrow haha” o The Origin of Man (Improvement Era 1909) This was the year that Darwin’s theories were finally accepted 
by society; natural selection was a hot topic at the time
“Man, by searching, cannot find out God. Lord must reveal 
Himself”
This article is very much against the idea of evolution The statement was revised in 1925 to take out a lot of the 
negative connotations towards the idea of evolution
o No Death on the Earth Joseph Fielding Smith’s remarks on mortality and death prior to 
Adam; Roberts writes a letter demanding to know if this released
statement is doctrine or his opinion and if it is just Smith’s 
opinion, then Roberts bring to question Smith’s education
There was a 3 day debate and the brethren were split, not knowing  which side to take: science or literal scripture - First Presidency Statement on Pre-Adamites o Quote is on i-learn Discount the statement of Elder Smith, clarifying that the denial of pre- Adamite existence is  not  doctrine, simply opinion Emphasize that both perspectives and opinions  are not  doctrine “Neither side of the controversy has been accepted as doctrine at all.   Both parties make the scripture and the statements of men who have 
been prominent in the affairs of the Church the basis of their 
contention; neither has produced definite proof in support of his views”
- Class Discussion: When would statements from apostles be considered 
doctrine?
General conference- the statements shared during conference are  different from an apostle speaking anywhere else. What is said during 
Conference is prayerfully pondered an carefully addressed.
We can’t take the word of one apostle as doctrine.  We need the  second witness, a third witness…. Books written by apostles and prophets are not doctrine
How do you know whether something is doctrine or not?
The feelings that arise from it Pray about it When you hear something and the Spirit witnesses it to you, 
that’s doctrine.  If you hear something and you get 
uncomfortable and the Spirit isn’t with you, that’s a witness too 
We need to keep in mind what is pertinent to our salvation and 
what isn’t.  what will help us get to where we want to be
