Re: Was John Taylor the last true prophet?

Last president was Wilford Woodruff. He screwed up royally whilst trying to subvert the satanists and was killed for it and basically his plan was lost with his death. "The Manifesto" was actually an effort to save the saints from being destroyed by the USA again, but the communists (luci...
