“There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.” – 1 Corinthians 15:40-41
“Willing, righteous obedience leads to celestial life; indeed, there is no eternal progress without it.” – Delbert L. Stapley
