If Not “Living” Prophets, Are They Valid?

Good questions from Mormonism Research Ministry when you use dead Mormon prophets for explaining LDS teachings and they dismiss the teachings because they are not “living.”

Were the prophets living when they said these words?

Were they supposed to be believed at the time they said them?

If the quotes of deceased presidents are no longer authoritative, why has so much energy been invested in producing the Teachings of Presidents of the Church series that features deceased prophets?

Excellent questions!

The Fair Mormon website has some great answers to all of your objections. Shields is good to. Check them out sometime.

Do you really think I've never looked at Fair Mormon? No, the answers they give are good enough for Mormons who don't bother doing their own research, but they are worthless lies, obfuscations, and deflections for those of us who do our own research.
