About this blog on "Quotes of Latter-day Apostles and Prophets"

This blog is for the purpose of recording what modern day prophets have to say on eight specific topics as part of a "Capstone Practicum" I am working on for a college Religion class. All quotes come from leaders within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, particularly from our current church president and prophet, Thomas S. Monson, his councilors, Henry B. Eyring and Dieter F. Uchtdorf, and the council of The Twelve Apostles.

I will have pages for current topics of interest and some quotes from our leaders as well as links for those who wish to learn more. This is a site to compile these quotes and my thoughts only and I am not going to subject them to commentary from those who would say something disparaging, therefore, all comments are moderated. Thank-you

Just choose a topic from the tabs at the top of this page and read what various latter-day prophets of God have had to say on the subject.

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I believe that a prophet is one who has been called by and speaks for God. As a messenger of God, a prophet receives commandments, prophecies, and revelations from God. His responsibility is to make known God’s will and true character to mankind and to show the meaning of his dealings with them. A prophet denounces sin and foretells its consequences. He is a preacher of righteousness. On occasion, prophets may be inspired to foretell the future for the benefit of mankind. His primary responsibility, however, is to bear witness of Christ. The President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is God’s prophet on earth today. Members of the First Presidency and the Twelve Apostles are sustained as prophets, seers, and revelators.

All quotes used herein are from men who are either currently the President and Prophet of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or among the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, or they are quotes from previous prophets, as per the definition above.

You can find out more about the church to which I belong at ~ I will also try to include useful information and/or links in the appropriate page tabs on this blog.

Having said that, please enjoy these quotes from various prophets on the following topics of interest:
