Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy.—2 Nephi 2:25
The salvation that I am thinking of, the salvation that Latter-day Saints seek, is eternal life in the presence of our Heavenly Father and his divine Son, not only eternal existence but eternal growth and activity. This is the joy of which Lehi spoke.—Joseph Anderson
