I think the Bismarck is a better metaphor than the Titanic.

Inho posted the specifics from his latest podcast transcription above, as to what he said he shouldn't have taught. I think the podcasts are still available on that site he linked to if you want to download them and listen.
Questions....Adam built an altar outside the temple....so did Levi, .....Jospeh smith taught that the temple endowment was for the 144,000 who would come forth in the last days.....so shouldn't we be seeking that ordinance???? His understanding of the church being Aaronic in nature is my understanding as well.....I got this from passages of the Joseph smith translation in genesis in d&c....the scritptures teach that God can ordain anyone he wants to the priesthood...it doesn't come through a church it comes through him (the church is merely an instituted pattern of how a Zion type society might function, they administer ordinances which are patterns, not Power). According to the scriptures...Christ healed people who weren't even in his presence...at his word alone, so I would argue...a phone call would work for someone like jesus who doesn't just have authority...but also possesses power....at his word, healing or blessings are done..inho wrote: ↑Tue Nov 21, 2017 2:34 amYou can find the podcast here as mp3 or pdf-transcript.There have been times when I have not followed the revelatory counsel given in Doctrine and Covenants 63:64 and I have taught and said things that were outside of the protective umbrella of priesthood keys and inspired direction. It was inappropriate for me to teach:
- That person should seek to be translated or seek and ordinance of translation and become members of the 144,000 spoken of in scripture.
- That temple ordinances, specifically the use of alters should be practiced outside of the temple
- That the Church of Latter-day Saints is Aaronic in nature and preparatory to the Melchizedec Priesthood institution referred to in scripture as the Church of the Firstborn.
- That people should seek Priesthood ordinations outside of the ordained channels found within the Church.
- That priesthood healings and ordinances should be practiced using prescribed format and that they can be performed over the phone.
