Joseph Smith: The Profile of a Prophet

Posted on by

The following PDF attachment is an exploration into Joseph Smith meeting the criteria of an authentic prophet. It was originally part of my review of Joel Kramer’s anti-Mormon DVD The Bible vs. Joseph Smith. Upon the wise suggestion of Greg Smith, a fellow FAIR volunteer, I excised this portion of my review and rewrote parts of it to stand alone as a separate article. As you may discover upon reading, this article does have a sort of devotional flavor to it. But I hope that the main point behind this article is easily recognizable.

With that in mind, I offer for the reader’s consideration Joseph Smith: The Profile of a Prophet for those interested. Feel free to download and keep a copy if you wish.

    A devout believer, I can’t help but wrestle a little with this list. How many of these criteria do Pres. Monson or Pres. Hinckley meet?

    That is a good question that I have not been able to adequately explore. The only thing off the top of my head that Presidents Hinckley and Monson seem to not qualify for would be number 5, a prophet beginning with “thus saith the Lord”. The others are open for exploration and probing.
