"This brings us then to the prime objective of this book: identification of the man who holds "the Keys of the Priesthood' or in other words, ulbe Lord's Anointed," or the "Mouthpiece of God." As the man holding the Keys of the Priesthood, he is authorized in God's order to seal on earth that which is sealed in the heavens. As the Lord's anointed he is personally acquainted with the Lord, being anointed by Him. And thus as the "Mouthpiece of God, he it is who can deliver to us the words of salvation, receiving them directly from God' s own lips. Of all mortals , then , he has the most effective communication with God, and thus he, better than any other mortal can best instruct us on how we can improve our communication with God, and how to keep His commandments and get back into His presence . It is only this path which leads to true and everlasing happiness. Or, as the Prophet Joseph Smith testified, "it is necessary to know who holds the keys of power , and who does not, or we may be likely to be deceived. ( TPJ S 336 . also HC 6:251) Is it not because so many have made an error in identifying this "one man," that they are lead into as many false paths?" Keys of the Priesthood Illus, pp 15-16.
