Answers About Standards

Our Heavenly Father expects the youth and all members of His Church to become exalted in the celestial kingdom. We are not striving for the lower kingdoms; we are not candidates for the telestial or terrestrial kingdoms. The young people of this Church are candidates for the celestial kingdom and the highest glory in that kingdom. That requires a great deal, a great deal that has to do with our day-to-day standards. This means not just going to Church, not just holding the priesthood, not just being happy, as measured by the world. It means living every standard of the Church fully. (Ezra Taft Benson at Scandinavia and Finland Area Conference, 16-18 August 1974. Also see Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson, p. 26.)
