"That's not me!!" - Prophets

I have found it easier to relate to, accept and love Joseph, the man, than Joseph, the historical figure. 2 Nephi 4 is one of the reasons Nephi is one of my favorite Book of Mormon prophets. I like Moses, the stutterer, more than Moses, the Lawgiver.

What I'm saying is that I believe many, if not all, of the prophets of our past are looking at us saying, on a regular basis as they hear and see what we say and write about them:

"That's not me!!"

I don't think it's just our past prophets that are saying that. It seemed to me that President Monson's closing remarks yesterday seemed to be saying much the same thing with the way he emphasized that he was just a man and the servant of all of us. I imagine it must be rather disconcerting to have one's praises sung for hours in front of millions of people.

Yeah, I agree with that, Firebyrd.
