Rock is Revelation – Mormon Quotes

Discourses of J. Smith, pg. 67-68; John was a priest after the order of Aaron, and had the keys of that priesthood, and came forth preaching repentance and baptism for the remission of sins, but at the same time cried out, “There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose,” and Christ came according to the words of John, and he was greater than John, because he held the keys of the Melchizedek Priesthood and kingdom of God, and had before revealed the priesthood of Moses, yet Christ was baptized by John to fulfill all righteousness; and Jesus in his teachings says, “Upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” What rock? Revelation. (HC 5:258.)

Matthew 15:14Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

Jesus was speaking with Peter when He instituted the church (body of Christ).  He didn’t say that it was built upon revelation!  It is built upon Jesus!
