If the church was a business I would have resigned a long time ago, but it is not a business but the Church of Jesus Christ.
In the early days of the Church all the apostles were converts, none of them were raised in the Church. Six of the original Twelve Apostles selected were excommunicated. Even the Three Witnesses to the Book of Mormon left the Church. Three of Joseph Smith’s counselors fell — one even helped plot his death.
However, all the Presidents of the Church since Joseph Smith have served in the Quorum of the Twelve before they are called to be the Church President. They are well qualified having been trained and tested beforehand
Thank you so much for that excellent article. It speaks the truth and needed to be said.
Thanks for being such a great teacher! I loved when you came to the Crosspointe Ward and taught what takes place when a new Bishop is called, a few years ago when Bishop Christensen was to be released.. I often think of times and lessons you have taught me. Always loved to hear you speak. Thinking of you fondly, Jeanette
