In his memoirs, An Abundant Life, Elder Hugh B. Brown explained “the Apostolic Charge” that every apostle is apparently given upon admittance to the Q12. It reads as follows: “Always be willing to subjugate his own thoughts and accept the majority opinion not only to vote for it but to act as though it were his own original opinion after it has been approved by the majority of the council of the twelve and the First Presidency.”

295: Revelation and The Role of Prophets & Apostles, Modern and Ancient


Are Modern Prophets the same as Ancient Prophets and Ancient Apostles?  Today we dissect three audio quotes of Elder Oaks where he seems to acknowledge and validate that they are not.  That while Ancient Apostles and prophets were witnesses of a manifestation of some sort in regards to their witness of Christ while Modern Prophets have essentially zero direct contact with the Savior.  Are Modern leaders just like Moses, Noah, and Abraham?  Apparently not.  What are we to make of this?  And what does it mean to you for them to be special witnesses of Christ?

068: Fisher’s of Men

Fishers_of_MenToday’s episode focuses on discussing some assumptions about what we know about the 12 Apostles in the Meridian of Time.  We use as a backdrop for this episode an article titled “Fishers of Fish, Fishers of Men” where non LDS author Jerome Murphy-O’Connor discusses the Historical context of these men were.  We end this episode then relaying how this understanding changes our assumptions about another scripture.

025: Prophets & Apostles

LDS-General-Conference

With General Conference coming up, this episode explores what Prophets and Apostles are, why it appears the prophets and apostles today are different from those of the old world, why they are different from even Joseph Smith of this dispensation, and what we are to make of it.  We conclude asking if revelation still occurs today.
