So, I swear I don’t go looking for these things, but somehow they keep jumping out at me.
I’m reading through some of the General Conference transcripts.
During the Sunday Morning Session of General Conference, Mr. Hinckley gave a speech entitled ?¢‚Ç¨?ìThe Things of Which I Know.
He states at one point:
>How deeply grateful I am that we of this Church do not rely on any man-made statement concerning the nature of Deity. Our knowledge comes directly from the personal experience of Joseph Smith . . .”
This leads me to believe that Joseph was not a man according to Mr. Hinckley.
Or, and I believe this is closer to the truth, Mr. Hinckley sees Mr. Smith as not actually have been talking but was in some way merely a conduit of direct communication from Heavenly Father.
Anyone care to discuss why this makes no sense?
Enlighten me. Please.
