SCRIPTURE: “Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.” –Amos 3:7. [source]
COMMENTARY: If you are a Mormon and you believe the Bible, then you either must believe that your prayers go unanswered or that God’s prophets are kept busy with the same mind-numbing litany of requests you weary God with. It’s no wonder God doesn’t have time to cure world hunger, inspire world peace, or give his prophets new revelation on homosexuality or women in the priesthood. If I were the prophet and had to listen all day to the worldly, short-term, materialistic, honey-do tasks God busies himself with, I guess I might feel inspired to build a multibillion-dollar shopping center, too. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
