abchristensen posted a topic in LDS Gospel DiscussionHi! I have in my notes from a BYU Religion class years over a dozen years ago, that the Prophets of the Dispensations are as follows: Adam- The father of all dispensations Abel - The prophet of the first dispensation Enoch - 2nd Noah - 3rd Abraham - 4th Moses - 5th Christ - 6th J.S. - 7th Other than this one note from my class I can't seem to find any sources. I'm wondering if this is correct and where I might find a source.
I've been attending Miss Prep lately and we've been going through Preach My Gospel. In section 3 Lesson 1, there's a subheading called "Heavenly Father Reveals His Gospel in Every Dispensation." We were talking about how God loves His children enough to want to guide them through all times of history. The first paragraph actually states "One important way that God shows His love for us is by calling prophets, who are given the priesthood." My question is if God loves us to call living prophets, why did there need to "come a falling away" (2 Thessalonians 2:3) and the Great Apostasy? Why couldn't there have been some sort of restoration before America. I know many people say that a country with religious freedom had to be established first, but He's God. couldn't he have called someone before then and kept the church on the earth?
