Nauvoo Roots of Mormon Polygamy, 1841 – 46, p. 9; “…According to the doctrine of celestial marriage, a woman who was “sealed” (married) to a man in a special religious ceremony was united to him and their children, not only for “time”—until death—but for eternity where they eventually could become gods. Implicit in the revelation was the requirement that a man and woman must accept the “principle” of taking plural wives—known as the law of Abraham—in order to gain the highest afterlife, the celestial kingdom. Just as Abraham, David, Solomon and other Old Testament patriarchs took “many wives and concubines,” the patriarchs and elders of the restored church could attain “crowns of eternal lives in the eternal worlds” and have descendants as “innumerable as the stars.” A woman’s salvation thus depended on entering into a polygamous relationship with a man of high status in the church, because such men were thought to have made the greatest progress towards godhood on earth.” – George D. Smith
