General Conference, ‘Importance of Records,’ October 1968, 76 “My dear brothers and sisters…If you were to approach a military installation some dark night, you would be immediately challenged by a sentry with the question, “Who goes there?” If you were to answer that challenge with the word “friend,” the sentry would answer, “Advance, friend, and give the password.” If you were neither able to give the password nor to identify yourself, you would be placed in an embarrassing and dangerous position.

Yet millions of those presently living on the earth are totally unprepared for death and to enter through the gates of the celestial kingdom. They know neither the password nor will they be able to identify themselves as a son or a daughter of God. They have never taken upon themselves the name of the Only Begotten Son of God, nor passed the necessary tests of faith, repentance, baptism, and the gift of the Holy Ghost. Nevertheless this identification is needed for the entry into the kingdom of heaven…” — Theodore M. Burton, Assistant to the Twelve Apostles (more…)

“This Day,” Conference April 2007 “It is hard to know when we have done enough for the Atonement to change our natures and so qualify us for eternal life. And we don’t know how many days we will have to give the service necessary for that mighty change to come. But we know that we will have days enough if only we don’t waste them.” Henry B. Eyring (more…)

1 Corinthians 1:18-20 “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?”

Journal of Discourses 21:39 “Salvation, in its largest aspect, consists in the proportion of truth received; men and women only are saved in proportion to the truth which they appropriate. An ignorant man will only obtain the salvation which belongs to the ignorant.” – Henry W. Naisbitt, Salt Lake City, November 23, 1879 (more…)

Journal of Discourses 20:30 “What we do not learn relative to the salvation of our souls which are our bodies and spirits, in this probation we will have to learn in the eternity which lies before us, for we cannot be saved without knowledge. “But what if we never get knowledge?” Then we never will be saved.” – Joseph F. Smith, Salt Lake City, July 7, 1878 (more…)

Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 160; “Salvation cannot come without revelation; it is in vain for anyone to minister without it. No man is a minister of Jesus Christ without being a Prophet. No man can be a minister of Jesus Christ except he has the testimony of Jesus; and this is the spirit of prophecy. Whenever salvation has been administered, it has been by testimony. Men of the present time testify of heaven and hell, and have never seen either; and I will say that no man knows these things without this.” (more…)

History of the Church 5:387; “It is not wisdom that we should have all knowledge at once presented before us; but that we should have a little at a time; then we can comprehend it. … Salvation is nothing more nor less than to triumph over all our enemies and put them under our feet. And when we have power to put all enemies under our feet in this world, and a knowledge to triumph over all evil spirits in the world to come, then we are saved…” Joseph Smith, May 14, 1843 (more…)
