MG-13 – No Need for a Prophet Today
Have you ever wondered why the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, that is, the Mormon Church, has a living prophet leading their church while Bible-believing Christian churches do not? Quoting the Bible at Amos 3:7 which says: “Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets,” leaders of the Mormon Church teach that “the Lord keeps a channel of communication open to His children through” their living prophet and that by “sustaining” their church leaders, “the Lord will never” allow their church members “to be led astray.” (See October 1994, General Conference talk, Heed the Prophet’s Voice at lds.org)
Is it true that without the revelations of a modern-day prophet, God’s people would be led astray? No! The Bible says in Hebrews chapter one “God… spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son.” Likewise, Luke 16:16 states: “The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.”
What these Scriptures are saying is that up until the time of Christ, God used prophets to speak to His people, but now through Christ, every Christian, has direct access to personal revelation from God through His Holy Spirit. At John 14:26: Jesus promised: “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”
By following the revelations of modern-day prophets instead of the divine revelations of Christ’s Holy Spirit and the Bible, Mormonism distorts the Gospel and cannot be considered Christian.
