More and more we are hearing adulation for "the prophet" you normally only hear given to a being you worship.
"He knows my needs, he knows your needs. He knows each of us. I hope I can follow the prophet." (A bishop in testimony meeting.)
"As we follow President Monson and try to be more like him, we will inevitably succeed in being more faithful disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ." (Seventy William R. Walker, CES Devotional, Ensign, April 2014. Not only did this Seventy say it, but other members (editors) thought it appropriate enough to used it as a pull-quote. These kind of statements remain un-corrected.)
