Evidently, you are unfamiliar with Christ's interactions with the critics of his day (Pharisees, Sadducees, Scribes).

Thanks, Wade Englund
No, I am not unfamiliar with those interactions.

I do have enough respect, however, to not assign myself as the role of “Christ” in an interaction. Apparently, you do not.
Apparently, then, you don't understand the difference between "Christlike" and "assigning oneself the role of Christ."

You're right that it "should tell us something", but it's not entirely clear what it is that it should tell us.
I would think it obvious. It tells us that if committees can decide what should included in the bound volume of the D&C, they can also decide what can be taken out, particularly regarding those things that do not qualify as scriptural revelation.
I seem to remember that the reversal of the non-revelation about blacks and the priesthood appeared to require a revelation to reverse. So you may think that some things are obvious, but I suggest that sometimes there seems to be sufficient nuance to counter that Idea - otherwise people are stuck with making special cases to cover the "obvious".

Although I don't think it's more off-topic that much of the discussion in this thread, I may open another topic on the matter. But for now I'll just note that, according to the essay you pointed to, what was canonized in D&C was not the revelation, but simply a "... statement regarding the revelation ..."

Joseph Smith expected Christ to return in his lifetime. The last dispensation was opening the door leading to the millennium in which Christ would reign while Smith presided over the Church.

Dude, you don't understand Joseph Smith and his mindset.

You are welcome to come up to the Celestial Forum and have a discussion on the Book of Abraham, if you care, and show me the strawman.

Historical Predynastic Egypt vs. Book of Abraham False Narrative
Anubis in Facsimile No. 3 and Mormon Deception
“King Pharaoh, whose name is given in the characters above his head”

Bring John Gee and all of FAIR. I will take them all on with one hand tied behind my back.

I WILL KICK THEIR ASSES!

And, I will kick yours too, you little worm.

You guys are going to H E double hockey sticks for making fun of the lords anointed!

I can assure you that if Bednar and I were to meet within a room where we could meet face to face in private and discuss our differences -- I would raise my vibrations and cause him to quake and tremble. It would be an epic confrontation between good and evil.

PS. I'm the good one. ;)
Just make sure not to stand up before him. I hear that makes him crazy. It might even cause him revoke a blessing or two

Elder Gerrit W. Gong of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will speak at a worldwide devotional for youth that will becoming available for viewing on January 29, 2023, at 4 p.m.* Mountain Standard Time. (This event will be pre-recorded on January 22, and tickets for the pre-recording have already been distributed.)
https://newsroom.churchofjesuschrist.or ... -for-youth

I believe the above devotional, that was recorded on the Sabbath, and which will be screened on the Sabbath will be similar to other Apostle-led devotionals in that there will be a Q&A part to it.

Bednar himself hosted a Q&A on the Sabbath…
Looking out among 15,000 students in the BYU-Idaho Center here on Sunday, September 22, Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles moved his finger across the screen of his iPad and read a question.

It was one of approximately 11,000 anonymous questions texted to him during the devotional.
