“Man Was Also in the Beginning with God”

D&C 93

Joseph Smith learned that men and women were co-eternal with God and could become like Him. Speaking with revealed assurance, he taught: “The soul, the mind of man, whare did it come from? The learned says God made it in the beginning, but it is not so. I know better. God has told me so.”

Behold, there shall be a record kept among you.

D&C 21:1
