“One of my great sorrows is that so many members of the Church fail to recognize this truth which I have read. We are not going to be saved in the kingdom of God just because our names are on the records of the Church. It will require more than that. We will have to have our names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life and if they are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life then it is an evidence we have kept the commandments. Every soul who will not keep these commandments shall have his name blotted out of that book.” (Joseph Fielding Smith, Conference Report, Oct. 1950, pp. 9-10)
