Joseph Smith Greater than Isaiah & Moses
Discourses of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pg. 7; “In thirty nations are men and women who look upon him as a greater leader than Moses and a greater prophet than Isaiah; his disciples now number close to a million [the present figure is over 3.5 million]; and already a granite shaft pierces the sky over the place where he was born, and another is in course of erection over the place where he is credited with having received the inspiration for his Book. (John Henry Evans, op. cit., introduction.)”
New Scofield Study Bible; “ISAIAH, whose name means salvation of the Lord, was the greatest of the writing prophets. No other prophet has written with such majestic eloquence about the glory of God (see ch. 40). Of all the O.T. prophets, Isaiah is the most comprehensive in range. No prophet is more fully occupied with the redemptive work of Christ. In no other place, in the Scriptures written under the law, is there so clear a view of grace.” MOSES – Moses typifies Christ as Prophet (Acts 3:22-23), Advocate (Exo 32:31-35; 1 John 2:1-2), Intercessor (Exo 17:1-6; Heb 7:25), and Leader, or King.”
Honestly. Do you really believe Smith is greater than Isaiah or Moses? A few years ago I wrote an article about this. I was visiting my mother in Utah and noticed in the center of her living room wall a huge picture of all 16 Mormon prophets hung proudly. She asked me which prophet was my favorite and I had to tell her that I don’t like to pick and choose like that but I do really enjoy the writings of Isaiah.
When I asked her about her favorite she replied “Joseph” without using Smith’s last name. I’ve always found that interesting. They’ll always refer to Joseph Smith by just his first name, but never use the name of Jesus. Instead they refer to him by His title of Christ and never His given name. This is no accident.
