178th General Conference, April 2008; “”On Saturday, February 2, 2008, funeral services for President Hinckley were held in this magnificent Conference Center – a building which will ever stand as a monument to his foresight and vision. During the funeral, beautiful and loving tributes were paid to this man of God. The following day, all 14 ordained Apostles living on the earth assembled in an upper room of the Salt Lake Temple.””
Matthew 10:1; “And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.”
So if they’re following the “biblical pattern” why are there fourteen apostles?
