John Taylor

“In another point of view, we look at him as emanating from the Gods?---as a God in embryo?---as an eternal being who had an existence before he came here, and who will exist after his mortal remains are mingled and associated with dust, from whence he came, and from whence he will be resurrected and partake of that happiness for which he is destined, or receive the reward of his evil deeds, according to circumstances” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: John Taylor, p. 2).
