There are many in the religious world today that claim to be an apostle. More than simply “a messenger” (Greek meaning of the word “apostle”), a title of “Apostle” is given or assumed by individuals wishing to mimick the authority and power given to the original twelve. For example, the Mormon Church“Quorum of the Twelve Apostles is made up of twelve righteous men, who are high priests of the Mormon Church. They perform their duties full-time with basic support from the Church. They hold all the keys of the priesthood, along with the prophet and the First Presidency.” Is this scriptural?
