Jesus Isn’t Enough?!?

How are you going to get your resurrection?  You will get it by the President of the Resurrection pertaining to this generation, and that is Joseph Smith Junior . . . no man or woman in this generation will get a resurrection and be crowned without Joseph Smith says so.  The man who was martyred in Carthage Jail, State of Illinois, holds the keys of Life and Death to this generation.  He is the President of the Resurrection in this Dispensation and he will be the first to rise from the dead.

Brigham Young, 8 October 1854, “The Complete Discourses of Brigham Young,” 2:853.

So I guess it doesn’t matter what Jesus did for salvation, and I guess Jesus doesn’t have the authority to raise from the dead.  Joseph Smith, Jr. seems to be quite god-like for Mormons.
