Lehi teaches his son, Jacob, that the Savior’s redeeming power offers a path of freedom, hope, and eternal life (which otherwise would have been unavailable because of the effects of Adam and Eve’s Fall).
“…The Messiah cometh in the fulness of time, that he may redeem the children of men from the fall. And because that they are redeemed from the fall they have become free forever, knowing good from evil; to act for themselves and not to be acted upon, save it be by the punishment of the law at the great and last day, according to the commandments which God hath given. Wherefore, men are free according to the flesh; and all things are given them which are expedient unto man. And they are free to choose liberty and eternal life, through the great Mediator of all men, or to choose captivity and death, according to the captivity and power of the devil…” (2 Nephi 2:26-27)
-Has every child inherited inevitable physical death, and separation from God, from their parents (going all the way back to Adam and Eve)?
-Will physical death and physical separation from God be permanent for anyone now that Christ has come and redeemed all from these effects of the Fall?
-Will everyone who is resurrected and brought back to God’s presence be comfortable staying there?
-Will Christ save all from spiritual death? Or, does He protect every soul’s freedom to choose whether to accept and follow Him?
