“[Earth was prepared] for the carrying out of the plan, which we could well liken to a blueprint, by which the children of God could be tutored and trained in all that was necessary for the divine purpose of bringing to pass, ‘to the glory of God,’ the opportunity of every soul to gain ‘immortality and eternal life.’ Eternal life means to have everlasting life in that celestial sphere where God and Christ dwell, by doing all things we are commanded” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Harold B. Lee, p. 3-4).
