Mormonism has a "Living Prophet"


President of the Church

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the Latter Day Saint movement, the President of the Church is generally considered to be the highest office of the church. It was the office held by Joseph Smith, Jr., founder of the movement, and the office assumed by many of Smith's claimed successors, such asBrigham YoungJoseph Smith IIISidney Rigdon, and James Strang. Several other titles have been associated with this office, including First Elder of the church, Presiding High PriestPresident of the High PriesthoodTrustee-in-Trust for the church, Prophet,SeerRevelatorTranslator, and Ruler (in Israel). The movement's founder, Joseph Smith, Jr., the first president of the church, was known by all of these titles in his lifetime (although not necessarily with consistency).
Joseph Smith died in 1844 without having indisputably established who was to be his successor. Therefore, his death was followed by a succession crisis in which various groups followed leaders with succession claims. Years later, the office of President was reorganized in many of the resulting Latter Day Saint denominations, the largest of which are The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Community of Christ (formerly the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints), and The Church of Jesus Christ (Bickertonite).
