Our Holy Religion

I wish to say a few words to the Saints upon what we call our holy religion.  If you and I are in the line of our duty when we talk, when we sing, when we preach, when we pray, when we rise up and when we lie down, when we go out and when we come in, in all the varied scenes and duties of this busy life, every iota that we perform is embraced in our holy religion.  The one is inseparably connected with the other through the whole march of life, from the day that persons know the truth until they have completed their work on the earth preparatory to entering into a higher state of bliss.  The religion that we have embraced is designed to correct people, to give them a true system, true laws, true ordinances, true customs, and to correct them in every point in all the social duties and enjoyments of life.  It teaches us every principle that is necessary to prepare people here on earth to become a perfect Zion--the pure in heart--a perfect heaven on earth.

Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses 4:355
