[Brigham Young]
There never was an earth without an Adam. There never was a time when earths were not coming into existence and going out. There never was a time when there was no Savior upon an earth, but man in his finite being cannot comprehend eternity. God the Father came and begotten a Son of the Virgin Mary, just the same as we beget out children; and consequently Jesus partook of his fathers divine nature, and was therefore competent in offering a sacrifice to satisfy divine justice. -- Salt Lake City
