Sabath 30 Joseph Smith Jr continued his discourse on eternal Judgement and the
eternal duration of matter.1
1. "the eternal duration of matter" is of course not a new subject,
see for example 6May38 and
8Aug39. John Corrill,
in his "History of the Mormons" notes the belief that matter is eternal. See the May 6, 1833
revelation (LDS D&C 93) "the elements are eternal."
