Why wouldn't there be Prophets alive today if there was in Bible times?

If you are talking about prophets as in simply people who speak and preach religion, they are around.

If you are talking about prophets as in prophets who do magic and miracles, which were so frequent in number, according to the bible, that Jesus was forced to do the greatest miracle of all, the no, they never existed, and therefore never will.

Hypothetical situation for you

If you did believe that Prophets are real is A or B more logical.

A) Prophets were only around during biblical times

B) God has, does and will have mouthpieces(prophets) on this earth

Those two choices make me conclude that the "Prophets" you are talking about, are the prophets who did magic and miracles, and were actual prophets from real Gods. In which case, i do not believe that prophets are real.

As i said before, prophets can be people who simply walk around preaching religion. But that doesnt make their religion true. People can, for example, go around preaching scientology, and be completely and utterly wrong.

It is not just Prophets that can do miracles, it is anybody who holds the Priesthood. If you so desired you could even do miracles. They are wrought through faith in Jesus Christ.

Really. So someone raised the dead? Did someone walk on water, and heal a blind man, an actual blind man?

And more importantly, was any of this confirmed?

The quickest way to find out if those miracles did occur, is to read The Book of Mormon and pray about it. If The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ is indeed true, it follows that the miracles are true.

"And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost" (Moro. 10:4).

So what exactly are you saying will happen if i read the book of mormon and pray about it?

If you read The Book of Mormon cover to cover with real intent trying to discover if it is a true book. Then after you read it, pray about it, you will receive revelation from God. The revelation will declare onto you that The Book of Moron is true. Even the hardest of hearts soften themselves towards The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints after reading it.

There may be, but if you read you will see that NO prophet is accepted in their own time. Hence, any who claim to be a prophet are cons and against "Heavenly Father" God, or maybe just against God. So we know that any who claim to follow a living prophet are but fools, sycophants and members of a cult.

You just disproved your own point. You said prophets are never accepted in their time, implying that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Prophet is accepted. Then you go onto imply he is a con. It is clear that from your statement and the world as a whole the Prophets are not accepted.

Only to you.....in their own time is the relevant part. Ergo, mormons are fools because they have living prophets. Christian, Jews, Islam.....all have prophets...but they are all dead prophets.

Your essentially saying according to your religion Prophets are mystical creatures in religious texts. If you were not saying that, then you would understand that if Prophets were once on earth they always will be, God is the same always.

Your also saying that the Christians who followed Jesus when he was alive are fools, since he was living at the time.

Because a prophet of God would likely, if God were described the way he is in the Bible, be most uncool with the way the Christian Church in general operates. Not to mention dissatisfied with the lack of union between different churches.

and don't even get him started on those Mormon people.

Therefore if a prophet actually sprung up one day, it would ironiclly be in the Church's best interest to crush that motherf*cker like an empty coke can.
What fresh dickery is the internet up to today?

B)God's will is unknowable, praise be, and we can't ever determine if there shall be more. To presume to know god's will is blasphemy of the highest caliber.

That is extremely disingenuous, and no different from muslims who tell me to read the quran with purity of spirit and I will receive a revelation from God, or Ray Comfort when he says that hit your knees and if you sincerely pray God will reveal himself to you.

And of course, if it doesn happen, then you werent sincere enough, your intent wasnt real, etc etc etc.

lol...no not even close. You just make stuff up. "No prophet is accepted in his own time.". No need for you to add to it. Thus if you claim there is a prophet, livin, and you accept him, you contradict God....

lol...no not even close. You just make stuff up. "No prophet is accepted in his own time.". No need for you to add to it. Thus if you claim there is a prophet, livin, and you accept him, you contradict God....

Have you read the Bible? Prophets through the Bible have always had a core group of followers.

Try Buddhism instead - a non-prophet-making religion.

So what exactly are you saying will happen if i read the book of mormon and pray about it?

"And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost" (Moro. 10:4).

If you read The Book of Mormon cover to cover with real intent trying to discover if it is a true book. Then after you read it, pray about it, you will receive revelation from God. The revelation will declare onto you that The Book of Moron is true. Even the hardest of hearts soften themselves towards The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints after reading it.



That is extremely disingenuous, and no different from muslims who tell me to read the quran with purity of spirit and I will receive a revelation from God, or Ray Comfort when he says that hit your knees and if you sincerely pray God will reveal himself to you.

And of course, if it doesn happen, then you werent sincere enough, your intent wasnt real, etc etc etc.

Well if you don't try it, I guess you will never know...

There may be, but if you read you will see that NO prophet is accepted in their own time. Hence, any who claim to be a prophet are cons and against "Heavenly Father" God, or maybe just against God. So we know that any who claim to follow a living prophet are but fools, sycophants and members of a cult.

You just disproved your own point. You said prophets are never accepted in their time, implying that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Prophet is accepted. Then you go onto imply he is a con. It is clear that from your statement and the world as a whole the Prophets are not accepted.

Only to you.....in their own time is the relevant part. Ergo, mormons are fools because they have living prophets. Christian, Jews, Islam.....all have prophets...but they are all dead prophets.

Your essentially saying according to your religion Prophets are mystical creatures in religious texts. If you were not saying that, then you would understand that if Prophets were once on earth they always will be, God is the same always.

LOL nonsense....thats just story, gotta find the truth and you concentrate on the fluff...but then, you would because Truth is something for who there is no room in your paradigm.
