RASHID - Can I ask about Adam and Eve? is there any possibility that if ever they didnt eat the fruit of knowledge, will eve can be pregnant without the knowledge of Good and evil?

JOEL - In their immortal state in the Garden of Eden, Eve would not be able to have children.

From the Book of Mormon:
"And now, behold, if Adam had not transgressed he would not have fallen, but he would have remained in the garden of Eden. And all things which were created must have remained in the same state in which they were after they were created; and they must have remained forever, and had no end.
And they would have had no children; wherefore they would have remained in a state of innocence, having no joy, for they knew no misery; doing no good, for they knew no sin." (2 Nephi 2:23-25")

No information is given as to why they physically could not have children. Perhaps, in their innocence, they simply didn't know how to do it or did not experience any kind of sexual atttraction for each other. God's great plan was to have His spirit children come to earth in mortal bodies to work out their salvation. Even if Adam and Eve could bare children while in an immortal state, they would not have had mortal children.

RASHID - I read the book The Kolob theorem of hilton. i read that even Satan and His followers will have a possibility to have their Body flesh and bones , before they will Cast in Outher Darkness? what do you say about this?

JOEL - The book is one man's opinion on how God's kingdom exists in this galaxy. Our past church leaders have taught that those one third spirits cast out of the pre-mortal life with Lucifer will never receive mortal bodies.

"Because of their open rebellion against light and truth, because they defied God and his government, knowing perfectly what the will of the Father was, they were cast out of heaven onto this earth. Their punishment: eternal damnation. Progression ceased for them. No mortal bodies would ever house their spirit forms. For them there was to be no second estate, no probationary experiences, no resurrection, no eternal life-nothing but darkness and defiance; nothing but wickedness and rebellion; nothing but hatred and evil to all eternity, because they came out in open rebellion and with a perfect knowledge of the course they then pursued and of the consequences that attended it; they fought against God. It is an awful thing to defy the Lord, to make open warfare against the Supreme Being." (Bruce R. McConkie (Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co. 1978), The Promised Messiah, p. 219)

"And they who keep their first estate shall be added upon; and they who keep not their first estate shall not have glory in the same kingdom with those who keep their first estate;" (Abr 3: 26)

Satan and the spirits that followed him did not keep their frist estate and will therefore have no chance to receive a body nor obtain a glory in a kingdom of heaven.

There are a few mortal people who have lived or will live on this earth who will of course have bodies of flesh and bone who will also be cast into outer darkness as sons of perdition. But Satan and the one third spirits cast out of heaven with him will not ever get bodies.
