Quotes by the second Prophet Brigham Young:
No man or woman in this dispensation will ever enter into the celestial kingdom of God without the consent of Joseph Smith… He reigns there as supreme a being in his sphere, capacity and calling, as God does in Heaven" - Journal of Discourses, Vol.14, p.203
"The time was when a test of a Christian was his confession of Jesus Christ…This is no test for this generation…This generation, however, is not left without a test. I have taught for thirty years, and still teach, that he that believeth in his heart and confesseth with his mouth that Jesus is the Christ and that Joseph Smith is his Prophet to this generation, is of God; and he that confesseth not that Jesus has come in the flesh and sent Joseph Smith with the fulness of the Gospel to this generation, is not of God, but is antichrist." Journal of Discourses, Vol.9, p.312.
Joseph Fielding Smith said: [There is] "no salvation without accepting Joseph Smith. If Joseph Smith was verily a prophet, and if he told the truth...no man can reject that testimony without incurring the most dreadful consequences, for he cannot enter the kingdom of God" (Doctrines of Salvation, vol. 1, p.190).
And we Christians get judged by Peter at the Pearly Gates.
Commonality: You gotta pass a test to get into Heaven.
Difference: Who's grading your test.
...We don't "pass a test"... Our lives are looked at and accepted/rejected. You could be an atheist who uses their last breath to claim jesus as their savior, and still get through the gate.
Judism, Christianity, and Islam judgement is based on the ancient Eqyptian belief that a person has to go through a judgment to prove that the deceased led an honorable life in order to enter the afterlife.
"..We don't "pass a test"... Our lives are looked at and accepted/rejected. "
Sorry, but that one made me laugh...
“I tell you, Joseph holds the keys, and none of us can get into the celestial kingdom without passing by him.
Journal of Discourses, Vol. 6, p.154-155
obvioysly...LDS is perfectly right...without joseph smith non can dream of getting into heaven...
@passing jesus is impt but none can reach heaven without joseph smiths permission....
1 Timothy 2:5
For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
@passing doesnot matter...joseph smith came after jesus...old testament prohibits worshipping any1 other than YAHWEH...new testament altered that...in same line this was altered with joseph smith...accept joseph smith to go to heaven...thats mandatory....
Old testament promised of a saver a new covenant (testament). Jesus is our new covenant (testament.
"I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles (Isaiah 42:6; 49:8).
This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you (Luke 22:20)."
So you think Joseph Smith Is you "new newer covenant?" Do you think Joseph Smith is your saver?
@passing wht do u mean by my saver..it is for all human kind...for heaven u need permission of joseph smith...
Like Jesus died for the world. He saved us from hell. Do u think Joseph smith is your saver?
@passing joseph smith is not saver...jesus is saver...joseph smith is incharge of heaven...no heaven without joseph smith...the faster world gets that , more people would get into heaven...or else in name of jesus they would keep wondering why didnt they get ticket of heaven...u cant get ticket for heaven unless u ask right man and that is joseph smith...
What do u mean the faster world knows. How is Joseph in charge of heaven. God is the judge he is let people into heaven remember the book of life.
Doesn't it say that Gabriel is at the gate?
@passing it got corrected with joseph smith...god is best judge...who are u and me to question god...he made joseph smith incharge...praise lord and get joseph smith's consent ...that is only way to heaven...
Where is Jesus in all of this. Where does it say that it was corrected?
Why do u believe this? Because most Mormon would say that this is not doctrine because this was written in the j of d. R u lds or rlds? And are u American? You are a little bit hard to understand.

Journal of Discourses 3:247, There is not a man or woman, who violates the covenant made with their God, that will not be required to pay the debt. The blood of Christ will never wipe that out, your own blood must atone for it. Journal of Discourses 4:219-220, Be saved and exalted with Gods, is...

Joseph Smith said he saw God the father (and Jesus) in the first vision in 1820. Smith said he...received the priesthood in 1829. In the Doctrine and Covenants 84:21-22 Smith said that you cannot see the face of God and live without the authority of the priesthood. How did Joseph...

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...
