Joseph Fielding Smith

“Our Father in heaven established a plan of salvation for his spirit children. This plan was designed to enable them to advance and progress until they obtain eternal life, which is the name of the kind of life our Father in Heaven lives. This plan is to enable the children of God to become like him and have the power and wisdom and knowledge which he possesses” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph Fielding Smith, p. 60).
