MORMON PROPHETS BY STEVE FINNELL
If Mormons believe that all Mormon prophets are appointed by God, then why do they not believe every word, every doctrine taught by all of the Mormon prophets?
WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT PROPHETS
Deuteronomy 18:18 I will raise up a prophet from among their countrymen like you, and I will put My words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him.
2 Peter 1:20-21 But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one's own interpretation, 21 for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.
God puts His words in the mouths of prophets. All prophets from God are given God's word through the Holy Spirit.
God's prophets speak without error.
WHY DO NOT ALL MORMONS BELIEVE ALL THE WORDS SPOKEN BY MORMON PROPHETS?
"In the beginning the head of the Gods called a council of the Gods and they came together and concocted a plan to create the world and people it" (The Journal of Discourses, Volume VI, Sermon by Joseph Smith)
If you are Mormon and do not believe this, why not? Is it because it is contrary to the Bible?
"God himself was once as we are now, and is an exalted man, and sits enthroned in yonder heavens! That is the great secret... It is the first principle of the Gospel to know for certainty the Character of God, and to know...that he was once a man like us...Here, then, is eternal life...to know the only wise and true God; and you have to learn to be Gods yourselves...the same as all Gods have done before you... (Prophet Joseph Smith,Jr., "King Follett Discourse," Journal of Discourse. V.6, pp. 3-4)
"Now hear it, O inhabitants of the earth, Jew and Gentile, Saints and sinner! When our father Adam came into the garden of Eden, he came into it with a celestial body, and brought Eve, one of his wives, with him. He helped to make and organize this world. He MICHEL, the Archangel, the ANCIENT OF DAYS! about holy men have written and spoken--He is our Father and our God, and the only God with whom WE have to do .....(Prophet Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, V. 1, p. 51)
"No man or woman in this dispensation will ever enter into the celestial kingdom of God without the consent of Joseph Smith... every man and woman must have the certificate of Joseph Smith, junior, as a passport to their entrance into the mansion where God and Christ are"(Prophet Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, V. 7, p. 289)
If you are a Mormon and deny the quotes by Mormon prophets are true, then, how can you be a Mormon in good standing with the Mormon Church?
All of the above quotes by Mormon prophets are contrary to the truth found in the Bible. You either have to believe that the Mormon prophets are from God or that the Holy Bible is from God. You cannot believe both.
THE TRUTH, IS, THAT THE BIBLE AND THE BIBLE ALONE CONTAINS GOD'S TRUTH!
