“[A prophet] is the certifying authority that his teaching or direction is from God. Anyone who doubts this—and none are discouraged from personal doubts—can verify the authenticity and content of the message by checking it with the official source, by revelation.”
—Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
