“…modern revelation, the scriptures which have been restored in the Book of Mormon, the Book of Moses, of Abraham, the Doctrine and Covenants, all bear witness that man is the offspring of God, and that man was created in his image.”  Joseph Fielding Smith, Man, His Origin and Destiny [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1954], 268 – 269.
