They in turn teach the gospel to others and testify of Jesus Christ as the Savior and Redeemer.The teachings of prophets are found in sacred books called scriptures.ordinance, whenever they reject the Lord’s prophets, or whenever they fail to endure in faith, they distance themselves from God and begin to live in spiritual darkness.Through him the fulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ was restored to the earth. The Savior told Joseph not to join any of the churches, for they “were all wrong” and “all their creeds were an abomination.” He stated, “They draw near to me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me, they teach for doctrines the commandments of men, having a form of godliness, but they deny the power thereof” (Joseph Smith—History ).Even though many good people believed in Christ and tried to understand and teach His gospel, they did not have the fulness of truth or the priesthood authority to baptize and perform other saving ordinances.Biblical history has recorded many instances of God speaking to prophets, and it also tells of many instances of apostasy.To end each period of general apostasy, God has shown His love for His childrenby calling another prophet and giving him priesthood authority to restore and teach the gospel of Jesus Christ anew.I knew that, if I asked that, I'd probably just hear crickets chirping.
