David O. McKay

“The restored Church of Jesus Christ is the plan given by our Heavenly Father whereby every human being who can think for himself or herself may work with God for the happiness and salvation of his or her soul. Reason and justice would demand universal application of eternal principles and ordinances to persons living in mortality, and to those living in the spirit world” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: David O. McKay, p. 131-132).
