To know that God’s Heaven is not people with those whose lives were lived in perfect ease, or perfected bodies, or perfection of circumstance, but rather those who spent their lives following the perfect Light of the Son.
The Lord’s commandment to “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father.” Matt. 5:48 ( 3 Ne. 12:48 ) has been misinterpreted to mean perfection of condition rather than perfecting of character. My message to Mormons is that Heaven–the Celestial Kingdom–is not owning the biggest house in the nicest suburb in the best ward. The Celestial Kingdom is populated by those who have spent their lives refining their hearts and minds to think, reason, understand, and act more like Jesus Christ.
