The Results of the Judgment

Doctrine and Covenants 76:111 

111 For they shall be judged according to their works, and every man shall receive according to his own works, his own dominion, in the mansions which are prepared . . .

Elder Bruce R. McConkie wrote:

“The book of life is the record of the acts of men as such record is written in their own bodies. It is the record engraven on the very bones, sinews, and flesh of the mortal body. That is, every thought, word, and deed has an effect on the human body; all these leave their marks, marks which can be read by Him who is Eternal as easily as the words in a book can be read. By obedience to telestial law men obtain telestial bodies; terrestrial law leads to terrestrial bodies; and conformity to celestial law—because this law includes the sanctifying power of the Holy Ghost—results in the creation of a body which is clean, pure, and spotless, a celestial body. . . . Men’s bodies will show what law they have lived.”

(Mormon Doctrine, 2nd ed. [1966], 97.)
