Joseph Smith: The Choice Seer; ““Indeed, the only way to ascertain the truth of those who claim prophetic status, in addition to knowing by direct and immediate revelation, is by their fruits-what comes of their labor, what works and blessings flow from their ministry. In this book we will focus on the fruits of Joseph Smith’s ministry in terms of three phases of his calling:
1. His role as a revealer of truth, one who sets forth fundamental and foundational doctrines;
2. His role as a legal administrator, one through whom priesthoods, keys, covenants, and saving ordinances are restored and put into effect; and
3. His role as a prophet and seer, one who penetrates the veil, expands the scriptural canon, and invites and prepares others to enter the rest of the Lord.
In assessing the marvelous impact of the Choice Seer’s work on this dispensation, we will turn first and foremost to the doctrinal teachings of Joseph Smith as set forth in his sermons, letters, revelations, translations, and narrations.”
Matthew 7:15-16; “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?”
“Choice Seer”? My it gets icky doesn’t it?
