Yes, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for” and the substance of things hoped for is the great spiritual energy . . . With this knowledge it is now possible to comprehend that faith is an ELEMENT. It is the greatest of all elements for it is the mother of all others. It is as definite as radium, or air, or water. It is truly the mother substance of elements out of which all existing things are composed. To mortal eyes it is hydrogen or oxygen or many of the other elements that have been discovered in recent years. But when this greatest of all elements is combined in the right proportions it becomes definitely tangible to the physical senses as H2O combined as water. This greatest of all elements, this substance of Spiritual material of everlasting creation, boundless energy, Almighty power can become tangible in newly created forms... -- ANNALEE SKARIN

"Ye Are Gods" was first published in the 1950s and was the first best-selling book by Mormon writer, Anna Lee Skarin. The central concept of the book is the foundational doctrine of Mormonism: that human beings may progress to Godhood; that God Himself, and all other Gods were once human beings who progressed to Godhood. This is summed up in the old Mormon saying "As man now is, God once was; as God now is, man may become." Skarin writes that progression to Godhood and Celestial Glory comes from following the Light within. (Mormonism teaches that a fine material--which can't be seen by the naked eye--flows throughout the galaxies. This material is called by several names: Spirit, Light, Intelligence. It is eternal and completely natural. No God created it. It is the thing which governs all life that exists anywhere in the endless universe, and it some how influences and is connected to human intelligence and perception. In this respect, Mormonism resembles the cosmology laid out in THE GOLDEN COMPASS and HIS DARK MATERRIALS by Phillip Pullman.) Skarin's book was a best-seller--particulary in Utah and Idaho where the vast majority of the population is Mormon. However, her ideas were rejected by the leadership of the LDS Church in Salt Lake City (Mormonism's largest denomination.) Skarin was a memember of the LDS Church. The leaders of the Church told her to renounce her ideas and to cease publsihing her book. She refused and was excommunicated. Neverthless, she went on to write a half dozen or more best selling books on the subject, and continued to have a wide readership not only among Mormons but many followers of what would become the New Age movement. Skarin mixes Mormonism with spiritual concepts that are more Eastern and Catholic.
