Ladder of Godhood

The Gospel through the Ages, p. 115“When you climb up a ladder, you must begin at the bottom, and ascend step by step, until you arrive at the top; and so it is with the principles of the Gospel—you must begin with the first, and go on until you learn all the principles of exaltation. […]

20th C. Prayers to Avenge Blood of 19th C. Saints
