Robert D. Hales, Apostle, 1994–present
"As we humbly testify to
the world, there appeared to Joseph in answer to his prayer
the very Eternal God of heaven and earth and his Only
Begotten Son, who is the Savior and Redeemer of all mankind.
They appeared to this young man, who in the eyes of the
world seemed to be a common lad, revealing in a few brief
moments more truth about the nature of God than was had
among all the churches and professions of belief in the
entire world. The boy prophet, Joseph, now knew that God the
Father and Jesus Christ were separate personages. Each had a
body of flesh and bones. They could indeed reveal themselves
to their chosen prophets just as they did to the prophets in
ancient times. Living testimony, personal revelation, is the
foundation stone of true religion."
