Does the Mormon Prophet Monson control Mitt Romney? That question should be forefront on every Christian American voter's mind.
But let's go back and listen to a Mormon Prophet discussing his power:
“Fourteen Fundamentals in Following the Prophet”
by Mormon Apostle Ezra Taft Benson (1899-1994) on Tuesday, February 26, 1980 at Brigham Young University.
. . .
In conclusion let us summarize this grand key, these “Fourteen Fundamentals in Following the Prophet”, for our salvation hangs on them.
1. The prophet is the only man who speaks for the Lord in everything.
2. The living prophet is more vital to us than the standard works.
(Translation: the Prophet can contradict scripture and doctrine - he can reinstate polygamy, take the priesthood away from the blacks, or anything else the Prophet desires. So the Prophet doesn't have to follow the Old Testament, New Testament, Book of Mormon or the Doctrine and Covenants. This makes the cult leader highly unpredictable, and subject to mental capacity)
3. The living prophet is more important to us than a dead prophet.
4. The prophet will never lead the church astray.
5. The prophet is not required to have any particular earthly training or credentials to speak on any subject or act on any matter at any time.
6. The prophet does not have to say “Thus Saith the Lord,” to give us scripture.
(I find this one interesting, Mormons are quick to claim that the Prophet doesn't speak as a Prophet unless he says "Thus Saith The Lord" and it is approved by the Quorom of Twelve Apostles. I just find it interesting that with a Mormon running for President, the Prophet doesn't "have" this power to speak for the Lord anymore, without the Quorum's approval. Why would Romney want us to believe that?)
7. The prophet tells us what we need to know, not always what we want to know.
8. The prophet is not limited by men’s reasoning.
9. The prophet can receive revelation on any matter, temporal or spiritual.
10. The prophet may be involved in civic matters.
(FLAG on the PLAY, a real BIG RED FLAG on the PLAY. The prophet may be involved in civic matters? Like calling up the Oval Office and telling his proxy President want to sign or not sign?)
11. The two groups who have the greatest difficulty in following the prophet are the proud who are learned and the proud who are rich.
(This would explain several of Romney's trips to Salt Lake to talk to the Utah Mormon elite over his political career. Camel, eye of a needle sort of thing. Put Romney in his place as a Mormon: The Prophet speaks, the Romney jumps; not the other way around.)
12. The prophet will not necessarily be popular with the world or the worldly.
13. The prophet and his counselors make up the First Presidency—the highest quorum in the Church.
14. The prophet and the presidency—the living prophet and the First Presidency—follow them and be blessed—reject them and suffer.
(Can't be more straight-forward than that. Either follow as the Prophet commands, or risk your salvation. Romney has invested well his tithing payments to the Mormons to insure his salvation and exaltation to God. So if the Prophet calls the White House and orders Mitt to jump, will Mitt Jump?)
There are many problems within these fourteen fundamentals in following the Mormon Prophet, and I have serious reservations in turning the Oval Office over to a Proxy President to the Mormon Utah Prophet Thomas Monson.
