The Lord gave us scriptures (writings of prophets) to teach us by showing us what previous people
have done so that we might learn from their mistakes. However, mankind has not. We always say, 'If I
were there I would have believed...' right? My question is: Why don't people accept the word of the
Lord (the teachings of true living prophets)? And why do people wait until 300 years later to believe,
why not now? Does the average Judeo-Christian ever wonder why isn't there a living prophet? If you
knew of one and knew he was called of God, would you follow his counsel? Why not?
I totally agree that if there have been prophets in the past, then there is no reason why there should
not be prophets living amongst us now.
The problem is, as it has always been, how to tell a true prophet from a false one.
