Finally! After decades of silence, a revelation from the First Presidency & Quorum of the 12! It looks like the big man upstairs personally wants a 9 story building at the MTC! Isn't it marvelous? Isn't it wonderful? My testimony of modern revelation is restored. If you read the article, the members were told it was a secular issue. When this "secular issue" looked be to against the giant building, god stepped in and revealed it was going to be built and everyone should sustain it.
All kidding aside, this reeks of something Warren Jeffs would pull. The GA's just don't realize how stupid and cult-like this makes the church look.
Uhhh you must have missed the televised Home Teacher visit to Pres Hinckley by Larry King.
KING: You are the prophet, right?
KING: Does that mean that, according to the church canon, the Lord speaks through you?
HINCKLEY: I think he makes his will manifest, yes.
KING: So if you change things, that's done by an edict given to you.
HINCKLEY: Yes, sir. KING: How do you receive it?
HINCKLEY: Well, various ways. It isn't necessarily a voice heard. Impressions come. The building of this very building I think is an evidence of that.
There came an impression, a feeling, that we need to enlarge our facilities where we could hold our conferences. And it was a very bold measure. We had to tear down a big building here and put this building up at great cost.
But goodness sakes, what a wonderful thing it's proven to be. It is an answer to many, many needs. And I think it's the result of inspiration.
KING: And that came from something higher than you.
HINCKLEY: I think so.http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/ ... kl.01.html
