History has shown that while claiming to believe in previous
Dead Prophets, it is the nature of man to “ not accept the
Living Prophets
,” because they meddle with their daily
lives. Living Prophets also call mankind to repentance
which the natural man does not like to hear. *
 
     
  I ‛m tired of your meddling, why don ‛t you
just leave us alone ?
 
  We have enough
writings from
ancient Prophets
like Moses, so go
away.
 
  We have plenty
written by Old
Testament Prophets.
We don ‛t need any more.
 
     
  Those who would ignore or persecute a Prophet today
would have ignored or persecuted a Prophet then, also.
 
  This phenomenal misunderstanding is
exposed in the Book of Mormon.
 
     
  You ‛ve got to
tell the people
what they want
to hear.
 
  Helaman 13:26-29
. . . if a Prophet come among you and declareth unto you the word of the Lord, which testifieth of your sins and iniquities, ye are angry with him, and cast him out . . . [ and ] you will say that he is a false Prophet . . . because he testifieth that your deeds are evil. But behold, if a man shall come among you and shall say : Do this, and there is no iniquity ; do that and ye shall not suffer ; yea, he will say : Walk after the pride of your own hearts . . . ye will . . . say that he is a Prophet . . . and ye will give unto him of your substance . . . .
 

* 1 Nephi 16:2, Mosiah 18:20, Alma 42:29, Helaman 13:26-29, 3 Nephi 16:15
