ORIGINAL SIN (Teachings of Joseph Smith)

All Born Pure & Undefiled — Matthew L. Davis (February 5, 1840)

He then entered into some details, the result of which tended to shew his total unbelief of what is termed Original Sin. He believes that it is washed away by the blood of Christ, and that it no longer Exists. As a necessary consequence, he believes that we are all born pure and undefiled. That all children dying at an Early (say eight years) not knowing good from ill, were incapable of sinning; and that all such assuredly go to Heaven.

Discourse, 5 February 1840, p. 2, The Joseph Smith Papers.
