What did Joseph Smith do that would prove he is a true prophet of God?


I was raised a Mormon but never studied the religion or any others for that matter. I have come to a realization that the religion I have grown up in has many flaws. My mother told me that in order to believe in the Mormon faith you have to believe that Joseph Smith was a true modern-day prophet. But from the little I know about the bible and prophets I think they all did or said something that would prove undoubtedly that they were a prophet of God. Maybe I am wrong but I was wondering if there is something about Joseph Smith that I am missing.

    Thank you for your comment. I will have to read your hub. Is it possible that it is the only book that has a promise of that because God doesnt need to make promises to people. The people asked God to show them and he did right? That wasnt enough?

    I think the belief is that true prophets are supposed to always have their predictions come true. I don't know the accuracy of the previous statements, but if Joseph Smith was wrong in some of his predictions then he wouldn't be a true prophet.
