Some Terrestrial Beings Accepted Christ and His Church, but Did Not Remain Valiant

Doctrine and Covenants 76:79 

79 These are they who are not valiant in the testimony of Jesus; wherefore, they obtain not the crown over the kingdom of our God.

President Ezra Taft Benson said:

“Not to be valiant in one’s testimony is a tragedy of eternal consequence. These are members who know this latter-day work is true, but who fail to endure to the end. Some may even hold temple recommends, but do not magnify their callings in the Church. Without valor, they do not take an affirmative stand for the kingdom of God. Some seek the praise, adulation, and honors of men; others attempt to conceal their sins; and a few criticize those who preside over them.”

(“Valiant in the Testimony of Jesus,” Ensign, May 1982, 63.)
