[Brigham Young]

Said that when this world was first made it was in a close proximity to God. When man sinned it was hurled millions of miles away from its first position, and that was why it was called the fall. Spoke of the goodness of God in providing salvation for all the human race that had not sinned against the Holy Ghost. -- SLC Bowery
