Mormons to be Thought of as Kings

Journal of Discourses 4:40-41; “In the days of Joseph it was considered a great privilege to be permitted to speak to a member of Congress, but twenty-six years will not pass away before the Elders of this Church will be as much thought of as the kings on their thrones.” – Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, Aug 31, 1856

1 John 2:16; “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”

I can’t imagine anyone bowing down to any elders in Utah can you?
