Faith in the Pillars of Eternity

“Elder Bruce R. McConkie described three doctrines as the ‘Three Pillars of Eternity.’
(1) Creation
(2) Fall
(3) Atonement
“What is interesting is that the Lord has told us that each of these has occurred, but gives no details on how they occurred. Notice how the information came through the veil to Adam; Through God’s own voice, through visitations of Angels, and the Holy Ghost. Information concerning these does not come through the veil easily. We can ask hard questions that, at this point, cannot be answered by anybody. You will hit the wall of faith on all three. We must have faith in these three.” — Robert J. Norman
