Lesson 2

The Creation

The Missionaries Will Teach...

The creator of this earth is Jesus Christ. He created it under the direction of Heavenly Father.  The earth is a place for us to gain experience.  In order to progress and become like God, we each needed to obtain a body and be tested here. 

While we are here on earth, we are outside of God's physical presence and can't remember  our pre-earth life.  Therefore, we must walk by faith rather than by sight.
