Oftentimes I think of the gentle promptings that I have in my life, and I wonder if that is the same level of prompting that the Prophets and Apostles have to be in tune to hear. Would I have the faith and confidence in myself as a listener to feel this gentle pull and issue one of the Official Declarations? Knowing that it went to key principles of the faith – who can marry and who can hold the priesthood – would I need more definitive answers before I could feel certain enough to promulgate the changes to the Church? Were there more definitive answers (and I think it likely)?
