As members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we believe that God still speaks to prophets. 15 men have been called of God to serve as “prophets, seers, and revelators,” to teach us, warn us, guide us, and bless us. One is called to serve as THE prophet, seer and revelator – currently it is President Thomas S. Monson. That is one of the single most important theological concepts in our Church.
What a claim! That the Lord speaks to us through these men. Either you believe this, or you don’t, and much of our commitment to the gospel hinges on the acceptance of this concept.
So, twice a year, we head for Salt Lake City, our Stake Centers, or our family television, to hear what the Lord’s servants have to tell us.
But what happens between sessions?
