You are aware that you're adding "of the first century" to the scriptures, aren't you? That's not there. foundations always have to be reinforced, rebuilt, and added to with new techniques that provide a firmer foundation. Foundations fail. They need to be renewed and maintained just like everything else man makes.Yes it was....but they are the foundation that has already been laid--"ARE BUILT"....and the church is built on top of those apostles and prophets--so we don't need the false prophets and false apostles of Mormonism that preach a different gospel, a different Jesus, do we? When we have the true church built upon the TRUE prophets and TRUE apostles of the first century--do we?
