Topic: Qualifications to Become Sons of God

Question #2-

 Do you believe the Church and gospel of Jesus Christ have been restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith?

Mormon doctrine teaches that a Great Apostasy occurred after Jesus was crucified and the apostles died, and with it came the loss of all gospel ordinances and priesthood authority. And because these things need to be restored God choose Joseph Smith to be his prophet and restorer of their faith.
