Last month the high council speaker in Juneau Third Ward spoke on the topic of Salvation, and he used the writings of Gerald Lund as his primary source in addition to the scriptures. During his talk he said something that I found particularly interesting. He said, "In the scriptures, the term 'salvation' is never used to mean anything less than exaltation or eternal life in the highest degree of the celestial kingdom."

I don't know if this is true or not; but if it is, then it could have settled many of the differences of opinion I had with Gary Smith, and perhaps he would still be participating on my email lists.

In scripture, does the word "salvation" ever specifically denote a telestial or a terrestrial glory? Does it ever specifically denote the condition of ministering angels who have achieved the celestial kingdom but failed to obtain the highest degree?

"There is no place in this work for those who believe only
in the gospel of doom and gloom. The gospel is good
news. It is a message of triumph." --Gordon B. Hinckley
All my opinions are tentative pending further data. --JWR
