Excerpt from The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Vol. 91: February 7, 1929
In observing these changes throughout all nature a man may be led to conclude, Without the aid of the Spirit of the Lord and divine revelation, that death is the end of all things; that the universe itself shall pass away and cease to be; but this is not the case. These things which we see changing, growing old and dying, do not come to their end. Death is not the end, neither of man nor of the earth, nor of the elements of which the earth is composed; neither of the material universe. The Lord created all things for a purpose. Nothing has He created to be destroyed, but that all things might endure forever. This mortal condition with all its changes and eventually death, is part of the great plan of eternal progress; As it has been pointed out, we lived, before we came here, in the spirit existence and in the presence of God. In His presence we walked by sight, but now we are called upon to walk by faith and pass through the various vicissitudes of life, gaining the experiences which could come to us only through this mortal probation. After death we pass on eventually through the resurrection and receive the fulness of life in the mansions which are prepared by our Father. Death is a part of the great plan of life, for after the resurrection comes immortality.
