Please see this link for line of authority Only a modern apostle has the power to ordain a Bishop (i.e. the Bishop of Rome, for instance). Since these apostles were killed anciently, it required a restoration which happened in 1829. This has been handed down by ordination (no man taketh this honor unto himself except he is called and ordained as Peter, James and John, saith the Lord). The rest are thieves and robbers and will be cast down when they approach the Lord for judgment (Depart from me, ye accursed, I never knew you) but are part of that apostate whore "that sitteth upon the many waters):
1 AND there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
(Revelation 17:1 - 5)
11 And it came to pass that I looked and beheld the whore of all the earth, and she sat upon many waters; and she had dominion over all the earth, among all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people.
12 And it came to pass that I beheld the church of the Lamb of God, and its numbers were few, because of the wickedness and abominations of the whore who sat upon many waters; nevertheless, I beheld that the church of the Lamb, who were the saints of God, were also upon all the face of the earth; and their dominions upon the face of the earth were small, because of the wickedness of the great whore whom I saw.
(1 Nephi 14:11 - 13)
