“It has been truthfully said that organic evolution is Satan’s chief weapon in this dispensation in his attempt to destroy the divine mission of Jesus Christ. It is a contemptible plot against faith in God and to destroy the effective belief in the divine atonement of our Redeemer through which men may be saved from their sins and find place in the Kingdom of God.

“There is not and cannot be, any compromise between the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the theories of evolution.” 

Joseph Fielding Smith, Man: His Origin and Destiny (Salt Lake City, UT: Deseret Book, 1954), 184.
