Unpublished Messages of James Padgett.
Amos the Prophet prefers the version in the Bible.
August 10th, 1915.
Received by James Padgett
I am here [xxxx] Amos; Amos the prophet.
I merely want to say that I have heard the message of the spirit who wrote last and that it may be a true account of creation and the fall of man but that I prefer the story in Genesis.
Of course I don't know that the latter is true but it reads better to me and as I was taught to believe it when on earth I must accept the other until I have good reasons to believe [otherwise].
I never saw him before but he is [a] very beautiful and high spirit and lives in the celestial heavens as I do but not in the same sphere I have never seen the first parents nor have I heard where they may be - If that spirit has knowledge of the past.
Well it is true that in we never owned this divine love until after the coming [of] Jesus and of course the first parents [possibly] could not have received much after Jesus came - and they may not have progressed to the highest celestial spheres. I have never seen them [Â…] Well as to the apple of course, partly that may be merely symbolical but the theory of the fall [Â…] -- whether Eve gave [it] to Adam or not I do not know. I must not write more but I want to say that I am [a] follower of Jesus and have that divine love.
I will now stop.
With all my love
I am yours in spirit
