Excerpt from The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Vol. 68: June 21, 1906
Briefly stated, then, the true doctrine of the origin and destiny of man is this: Man is the actual, spiritual offspring of God. His first appearance, as far as we have any record, was in the world preceding this, and this earth-life is the second stage in his existence. He is gradually rising and growing in intelligence, and will continue to do so, worlds upon worlds, until he becomes perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Is this glorious doctrine blasphemy? Nay, it is sublimity!
