Apparently, there is a growing number of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who are confused about what a prophet is and isn’t. Because of this whole world-wide coronavirus pandemic, many of these members are claiming that “the prophet” has told us to wear masks, and other such nonsense claims. These people are sowing dissension within the church and even going as far as declaring that the members, like me, who refuse to wear the mark of the beast to enter meeting houses, are actually tares and should be removed from callings and the church.
So, I have collected a couple videos to help illustrate my argument that “a prophet is only a prophet when speaking prophetically”. In other words, if he, the president of the Church is not saying ‘sayeth the Lord’, or equivalent, he is just giving his opinion. For instance, when President Russel M. Nelson announced changes to the priesthood structure, shortly after being named president, he in fact claimed the change were divinely revealed. He was acting as a prophet.
This is a video released by the Church of Jesus Christ itself that teaches us exactly what a prophet is:
This second video is produced by a member of the Church by the name of Scott Woodward. I’m sharing it because it explores the doctrine of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints concerning the words church presidents say and whether they are meant to be obeyed or whether they are simply the opinion of the man who said them.
Please watch and share them with your member friends and family.
