The “Great Plan of Happiness”

Alma 42:8

8 Now behold, it was not expedient that man should be reclaimed from this temporal death, for that would destroy the great plan of happiness.

The Prophet Joseph Smith said:

“The great plan of salvation is a theme which ought to occupy our strict attention, and be regarded as one of heaven’s best gifts to mankind.”

(Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph Smith [2007], 208.)
