    Journal of Discourses,(brigham young second President) vol. 1, pp.50-51, He (Adam) is Michael, the Archangel, the Ancient of Days…He (Adam) is our Father and our God, and the only God with whom we have to do.

    Wilford Woodruff Diary, vol. 4, p. 129 (April 9, 1852)Wilford Woodruff 4th President, Adam is Michael or God.

    Wilford Woodruff Diary, vol. 6, p. 381 (December 16, 1867) Wilford Woodruff, Joseph also taught Adam-God.

    This was taught until 1976 when President Spencer W. Kimball said in Conference Report, p. 115 (October 1-3, 1976), Teaching the truth "We warn you against the dissemination of doctrines which are not according to the scriptures and which are alleged to have been taught by some of the General Authorities of past generations. Such, for instance, is the Adam-God theory. We denounce that theory and hope that everyone will be cautioned against this and other kinds of false doctrine.

    So in this statement, Kimball is ether trying to cover up the Adam-God doctrine, or he did not know the history of his own religion. In Kimball’s statement, he states that the Adam-God doctrine is false. So does this mean that Brigham Young and all of the past presidents were false teachers?

      I don't know about any of these Presidents personal journals or what makes them any authority on the subject but I have been studing the writings of Finnes Jennings Dake for over a year. His book Gods Plan For Man was published in the early fourtys, well before Kimballs Conference Report denouncing the Adam-God theory and Dake never once mentions this theory in any of his writing. In fact all of his writing is too the contrary. For that matter so is the book of Genesis.

    Quotes from that "Journal of Discourses" are recollections by someone of what someone else said, therefor hearsay, to be taken at whatever value the reader is willing to accord to hearsay.  This quotation is similar to one quoting President Brigham Young as saying the Trinity is perfectly examplified by God our Heavenly Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and Michael (Adam) the Holy Ghost.
    When asked if that was an accurate quote, Brigham is said to have repied that he wished that people (in this case the writer) would ask him first before (purporting to be) quoting him.  The function of the Holy Ghost is to testify of Christ, and all Christians are expected to do the same by example, word, and deed.  If you and I are faithful Christians, we will do just matter what debates swirl around us today.
