[Brigham Young]
Young dismissed Orson Hyde's views showing him the danger of holding these ideas even if he does not teach them. Would like him to preach these doctrines before a conference of Elders, and let him reply and correct them. Then showed in much plainness the doctrine of the resurrection of the elements of this body to unite with the spirit, that has honored and exalted it, as every element pertaining to the earth, however diffused in gas, smoke, vapor, etc., belongs to this earth and not to the moon [and] sun etc., and will forever remain associated with this planet. So with the elements of a human body are associated with the spirit, and ever will belong to one another. -- Salt Lake City
