Mormon.What is title and/or lyrics to childrens song that has the phrase"follow the prophet,he knows the way"?
Also, what is the approximate age of children when they are first taught this song? —hanging in there

The "Follow the Prophet" song is a recent addition. We didn't sing it when I was a kid, we sang "Give Said the Little Stream" and "Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree." Oh, and we sang "Book of Mormon Stories" a lot, complete with the hand motions and Indian feathers behind our heads when we'd sing "... are about the Lamanites." But that was back when we knew who the Lamanites were. ;)

I hope it's obvious why as a nonbeliever "Follow the Prophet" gives me the willies. The only reason the Mormons here are comfortable with that message is because they know Mormonism is true; if it were any other organization or church they'd raise their eyebrows too.

Thanks, Doc, that's my favorite thought-killer and it just doesn't get used enough.
