Question

 

Gramps,

I have what I think is a simple question.  Were Adam and Eve baptized?  If not, why?

Answer

 

Kalola,

We read about Adam’s baptism in Moses 6:64-66

64 And it came to pass, when the Lord had spoken with Adam, our father, that Adam cried unto the Lord, and he was caught away by the Spirit of the Lord, and was carried down into the water, and was laid under the water, and was brought forth out of the water.

 

 65 And thus he was baptized, and the Spirit of God descended upon him, and thus he was born of the Spirit, and became quickened in the inner man.

 

 66 And he heard a voice out of heaven, saying: Thou art baptized with fire, and with the Holy Ghost. This is therecord of the Father, and the Son, from henceforth and forever;

We do not have an account for Eve.  However we know that Adam and Eve were taught the Gospel by angels. We also know that Adam and Eve taught the Gospel to their children.  Therefore it makes a whole lot of sense that once Adam was authorized to perform baptisms, Eve would have been one of the first he did, if not the very first one.
