My apologies to anyone who thinks I’m discussing aleph numbers or SSM. I’m on to something else.
When God instituted circumsision with Abraham as an everlasting covenant, how long did that last and did it require Adam to become circumscribed?
What about Moses and blood sacrifice? How long did that last?
Or Levi and exclusive access to the priesthood by a single tribe out of Israel?
Or keeping kosher in dress and food? Was Noah told he could not drink wine and had to keep the word of wisdom?
Or how about polygamy?
Think about D&C 19: 6-12. Endless, Eternal, Everlasting, do they just mean something instituted by God, no matter how long or how short a period they are for?
What else might be “endless” yet temporary, fitting this pattern?
