Lorenzo Snow tells general conference that "we will continue on improving, advancing and increasing in wisdom, intelligence, power, and dominion, worlds without end." In 1908 John A. Widtsoe's JOSEPH SMITH AS A SCIENTIST affirms: "God in 'Mormon' Theology is the greatest intelligence; yet it must of necessity, under the inexorable law of the universe, grow." In his 1910 SEVENTIES' COURSE IN THEOLOGY, B. H. Roberts writes that "progress is eternal, even for the highest intelligences." In his 1911 SEVENTIES' COURSE IN THEOLOGY, Roberts writes: "And is it too bold a thought that with this progress, even for the Mightiest, new thoughts, and new vistas may appear, inviting to new adventures and enterprises that will yield new experiences, advancement, and enlargement even for the Most High?"
