As I was listening to the endowment ceremony, one thing struck me. Of course it is in the Bible, so I’m not sure why it took me so long to notice this. We all know that according to the Bible, Adam was created first, out of dirt. When Eve was created, however, a rib from Adam was used. Adam calls Eve in Genesis 3:20 “the mother of all living.” If Eve was created from Adam, isn’t he really the Mother of all living? What do you make of this built in contradiction?
