What Continuing Revelation Means
Daniel Peterson, Deseret News
"Here then," declared the Prophet Joseph in his famous funeral sermon for Elder King Follett, "is eternal life — to know the only wise and true God. You have got to learn how to make yourselves Gods in order to save yourselves and be kings and priests to God, the same as all Gods have done — by going from a small capacity to a great capacity, from a small degree to another, from grace to grace, until the resurrection of the dead, from exaltation to exaltation — till you are able to sit in everlasting burnings and everlasting power and glory as those who have gone before."
(Presumably, a fundamental element in "saving yourself" is accepting Christ and his atonement — an act that is entirely ours to make or to refuse.)
