1. It was standard procedure in Bible times for God to talk to man
1 Corinthians 12:28
And God has appointed in the church, first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, various kinds of tongues.
Notice the first are the Apostles. That is not how Mormonism has it set up. Prophets were not standard procedure in the New Testament.

5. Joseph Smith qualifies as a prophet of God
