Excerpt from Eighty-Ninth, Semi-Annual Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints: Held in the Tabernacle and Assembly Hall, Salt Lake City, Utah, October 4th, 5th and 6th, 1918, With a Full Report of the Discourses
Now, my brethren and sisters, this morning I rejoice in the testi mony in my heart of the divinity of this work, and of this great fact that we are representing the only Church under the direction personally of Jesus Christ, our Redeemer, which is recognized on high. The power and authority has come from on high to the leaders of this Church to seal on earth, and what they seal in the way appointed will be sealed in heaven; to loose on earth when it becomes proper and necessary, and it shall be loosed in heaven. We work together with the powers on high. The authority given by the Lord to us is divine authority. It is not the authority of men although it is given to men. Men are called and ordained to different Offices in the holy priesthood that they may labor for the salvation of souls, not only for the living but also for the dead.
