Did They Really Say That?!?

Thus to bear witness of Joseph Smith is to bear witness of Jesus Christ, who sent him, in the same way that a testimony of Christ also implies clearly a testimony of the Eternal Father, who sent Him.  On the other hand, to deny Joseph Smith outright—to deny the spiritual impressions which attest to his prophetic assignment—is to deny the Lord who sent him.

BYU Professor Robert L. Millet, “Joseph Smith among the Prophets,” Ensign, June 1944, 20.

So, if you deny that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God, you are thereby denying Christ?!?!  Doesn’t that then make accepting Joseph Smith as a prophet of God a requirement for salvation? Since when is anything but faith in Christ a requirement for salvation?

Then again, how about if I deny Joseph Smith as a prophet and then I am indeed denying the “Lord” who sent him, his “Lord” being the devil!

Interested folks may benefit from viewing this article on there being no evidence supporting the Book of Mormon:

They will also find said evidence by reviewing many articles here in The Anti-Mormon Blog.

Glenn,

A sincere question. If we are saved by faith alone, then why does God judge us according to our works?

Alex,
We are rewarded according to our works. What our rewards in heaven are, are not specified, but likened to crowns or victory wreaths, etc.
