    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 to think Mormons always accuse Catholics of being polythesitic. Oh well, not my religion, not my problem.

    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.

          1 Timothy 2:5

          For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

          John 14:6

          Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

              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?
