“God will do nothing regarding His work except through His own duly anointed prophets! They are His servants. They are the watchmen on the towers of Zion.
“They will give us the Lord’s word in no uncertain terms as God makes it known. That is why He has His prophets on earth. They are for the edification of the Saints and to protect us from every wind of doctrine. Let us follow them and avoid being led astray.”
Mark E. Petersen, Church News – 12 December 1981, “When Shall It Be?” (Salt Lake City, UT: The Deseret News, 1981), 16.
