"Regardless of tribulations and inhuman acts, we may trust that mortality has divine purpose and that the Lord is not an absentee master. He is serious in His work to help His children become sanctified and perfected. The trials of mortality are an integral part of that schooling. The reality of those trials witness to the certainty of the Lord's purposes." [From author's conclusion]
