Geoff’s post at Cool Thang and Jeffrey’s comments got me thinking about revelation. My simple question is "When is revelation revelation?"
It seems that there may be a question about the prophet either receiving revelations, or if he does then his sharing those with the members of the church.
I’m not sure I can determine which "advice" the prophet gives at conference etc. as being revelation, or just good advice….or his own opinion. Yeah, I know go and pray about it, get a confirmation that what he’s say is true and then I’ll know. Just because I get a confirmation doesn’t make my point. The confirmation can just as well be confirming that it is good advice and I should be following it. But it still might not be revelation…or is it?
How do we tell?
