What happened on this date in Mormon History - several curious snippets every day
110 years ago today - Feb 6, 1907
B. H. Roberts meets with the First Presidency and six Apostles to discuss a passage in his forthcoming book NEW WITNESS FOR GOD. Roberts's views are that the elements of man became a spirit-a child to God-through pre-mortal birth. Following the discussion, the brethren agree to incorporate the passage essentially as written, and they also include this view in the First Presidency's 1909 statement on the origin of man.
