An Apostle Speaks of Our Day

An apostle serves as a messenger and missionary for Jesus Christ and delivers His Christian messages to those who will listen. Such messages can often be of a prophetic nature, hence an apostle is also known as a prophet.

In 1978, the late Neal A. Maxwell who at the time was an apostle with the title Elder in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, delivered a powerful and prophetic sermon at Brigham Young University concerning what he called "The Secular Church."

This particular message stands today as an excellent example of modern-day prophecy. He spoke of the rise of irreligion as the new state religion and prophesied the impact this would have on important moral issues of life such as family, marriage and religious rights. Elder Neal A. Maxwell's prophesy spoke very directly of our world today, thirty years later, warning all people of all faiths. Many more prophecies have been shared by his fellow apostles since then.
