"The Prophet Joseph Smith taught with clarity the importance of our physical bodies:" 'We came to this earth that we might have a body and present it pure before God in the celestial kingdom. The great principle of happiness consists in having a body. The devil has no body, and herein is his punishment. He is pleased when he can obtain the tabernacle of man, and when cast out by the Savior he asked to go into the herd of swine, showing that he would prefer a swine's body to having none. All beings who have bodies have power over those who have not. The devil has no power over us only as we permit him; the moment we revolt at anything which comes from God, the devil takes power' (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph Smith [2007], 211, 214)."
-- David A. Bednar, "Things as They Really Are (Church Educational System fireside for young adults, May 3, 2009)
