Did They Really Say That?!?

I know just as well what to teach this people and just what to say to them and what to do in order to bring them into the celestial kingdom, as I know the road to my office.  It is just as plain and easy.  The Lord is in our midst.  He teaches the people continually.  I have never yet preached a sermon and sent it out to the children of men, that they may not call Scripture.  Let me have the privilege of correcting a sermon, and it is as good Scripture as they deserve.

Brigham Young, January 2, 1870, Journal of Discourses 13:95

So, Brigham Young is still considered a prophet of the LDS, and he stated that his sermons are the same as Scripture, and yet the LDS now denies some of his teachings?!?!?  How can they justify that?  How can they say the Young was wrong about “blood atonement,” e.g.?

Did They Really Say That?!?

Now ask the Father in the name of Jesus whether I am telling you the truth about temporal things or not, and the same Spirit that bore witness to you that baptism by immersion is the correct way according to the Scriptures will bear witness that the man whom God calls to dictate affairs in the building up of this Zion has the right to dictate about everything connected with the building up of Zion, yes even to the ribbons the  women wear; and any person who denies it is ignorant.  There is not a man or woman in the world who rises up against this principle but what is ignorant; all such are destitute of the spirit of revelation and enjoy not the Sprit of Christ.

Brigham Young, February 3, 1867, Journal of Discourses 11:298

Brigham Young had several false prophecies that I’ve previously reported, which alone proves he wasn’t a man of God.  I’d like to know where in Scripture it says the Mormons would be building any “Zion” and where it says any leader of the church had authority as to even what ribbons a woman should wear!
