Eternal Science! who would fathom thee
Must launch his hark upon a shoreless sea.
Thy knowledge yet shall overwhelm the earth;
Thy truth to immortality give birth,
Thy dawn shall kindle to eternal day,
And man, immortal, still shall own thy sway.    
First. Theology is the science of communication, or of correspondence, between God, angels, spirits, and men, by means of visions, dreams, interpretations, conversations, inspirations, or the spirit of prophecy and revelation.    
Second. It is the science by which worlds are organized, sustained, and directed, and the elements controlled.    
Third. It is the science of knowledge, and the key and power thereof, by which the heavens are opened, and lawful access is obtained to the treasures of wisdom and intelligence-inexhaustible, infinite, embracing the past, the present, and the future.    
Fourth. It is the science of life-endless and eternal, by which the living are changed or translated, and the dead raised.    
Fifth. It is the science of faith, reformation, and remission of sins, whereby a fallen race of mortals may be justified, cleansed, and restored to the communion and fellowship of that Holy Spirit which is the light of the world, and of every intelligence therein.    
(Parley P. Pratt, Key to the Science of Theology/A Voice of Warning, p.11-12)
