Has Mr. Nelson said unequivocally that

- the LDS is the (only) true church of Christ

- that he ("I") am a true prophet, I am the only conduit (or messenger) of God's will to people on Earth

- has he predicted (specific) future events (unknown to others) that have later come true?


per Profiles of a Prophet, that's what a prophet is supposed to do!

When Gordo was asked:

Q: You are the president, prophet, seer and revelator of the Mormon Church?

A: I am so sustained, yes. (Laughter)

Has Russ ever even said he is "so sustained"?

I belleive that what he said was
"I am sustained as such"

The quote above came from a transcript of an interview that Gordo did with the San Francisco Chronicle in 1997. The “I am sustained as such” quote came from his interview with Larry King.

So, out of humility (or more likely, honestly) he ducked the question at least twice.

Russ has taken the Hinckley "sustained-as-such" route like every "prophet" after him.

You get that high up and your only hope for a revelation is trying to convince yourself that what ever pops into your head must have been put there by God. Deep down, you know it's you, but Wendy assures you it's all from God. She can't be seen as the wife of a doddering old fool who makes up inanities, now can she!

They have no answers to the tough questions--Joe, Brigham, BoM, BoA--and so they are slowly but surely, without even admitting to each other or themselves, becoming another generic church.

Like a school of fish moving in unison. Makes it easy for the sharks. That would be us.

Do you think that in his mind he thought, "the one true George Global Faith Leader"?

Someone PLEASE inspire Nelson to greatness!

- speak outside the (Mormon) box!

Give us truth & wisdom that will be remembered & referred to for a long time into the future!

Give us wisdom about ending / abating violence, wars, & rumors of wars.

Help us chart a path to preserving the environment for ourselves, our children, grandchildren, & future generations!

Help us solve the problems of malnutrition, lack of water & other necessary resources such as habitable living spaces.


Please O Please give us something GREAT to remember you by, something that will stand the test of time, at least beyond your years on our fragile planet.

and Last; Please, no more photo-ops with your adoring fans, they want if not expect greater things!

If Russ was to do half of what you request, will you rejoin the now COJCLDS?

Most likely no, I wouldn't.

they've not delivered on their claims especially their lack of focus on Honesty, Kindness, Respect.

Their focus is 99% around Mormonim & the PH authority.

The Mormon church has morphed into an organization where policy changes pass for revelation, obedience has replaced love, and the musings of old men trump both scripture and the teachings of Jesus Christ.

“...policy changes supported by selected surveys pass for revelations...”

I amplified on your correct analysis.

for clarification & honesty, my last sentence was lifted from someone else's post, I didn't make a note whose it was originally was.
