Juvenile Instructor, Vol. 35, December 15, 1900, No. 24, p. 823Angels obeyed Gospel. We think angels are very holy beings. How did they become holy? How can they dwell in the presence of God? They have become holy through obeying that Gospel which is taught to us. Every child who obeys that Gospel can become an angel in character and disposition. There was a time when angels were mortal as we are, and they were tempted as we are. But they resisted temptation. By the aid of God’s Holy Spirit they conquered their evil inclinations.

We’re putting the latest stats together and they should be done by tomorrow, sorry for the delay! I’m not a math person, so I’m taking extra time to check my calculations via the math guy in my life – Kirk! 🙂
