"For the word of the Lord is truth, and whatsoever is truth is light, and whatsoever is light is Spirit. ... And the Spirit giveth light to every man ... that hearkeneth to the voice of the Spirit. ... And the Father teacheth him of the covenant which he has renewed and confirmed upon you" (D&C 84:45-46, 48).
