BRIGHAM YOUNG was ordained an Apostle on 14 February 1835 under
the hands of the Three Witnesses; Oliver Cowdery, David Whitmer
and Martin Harris.
The Three Witnesses were called by revelation to choose the
Twelve Apostles and on 14 February 1835, were "blessed by the
laying on of the hands of the Presidency," Joseph Smith, Jr.,
Sidney Rigdon and Frederick G. Williams, to ordain the Twelve
Apostles. (Church History, Vol. 2, pp. 187-188)
JOSEPH SMITH, JR. and OLIVER COWDERY received the Melchizedek
Priesthood in 1829 under the hands of Peter, James and John. They
being visited by Peter James and John who were sent as
resurrected beings to restore this Priesthood to the earth.
PETER, JAMES, AND JOHN were ordained Apostles by the Lord Jesus
Christ. (John 15:16)
there apparently are alot of 'authorized authorities' with the 'only true line of authority'. ...(contradiction intended).
it has always intrigued me that there are perhaps 16 different fundamental mormon groups which are lead by the 'true prophet and authority'. ...each and every one of those members is adamant and absolutely certain
that they are following the only living authority on earth.
the question is...since there can only be one...how many are lying to themselves?....how about 4+ billion!
and of course, the LDS (11 million members)church has made that claim since 1831...that precedes all of the fundies.
and of course, the presbyterian church (millions) since...(a long time ago)lol
and of course, the lutherns (millions)
and various other christian churches (millions)
and of course , the Catholics (about a billion) ...since 321 AD! How can that be beat? 321AD from Peter Himself!!!
and of course the Jewish....( millions) since 6000 BC.!!!hmmm can't beat this one...from the Beginning...from Jehovah himself!!!
and of course there is Islam since what? (over a billion) 1000 BC?
so...lets think about it. The true and living God has how many in his flock? Some fundamental groups of absolute authority have maybe 200 members...hmmm. And the other 4 billion devout followers of other leaders ?What about them? That sounds logical doesn't it? 200 people that are 'right' and the rest are lost to heathen Gods...yah. makes total sense doesn't it?
I find it ludicrous to think that because a group is for or against something somehow makes them right.

Apparently you don't understand the Authority the Fundies are claiming none of the others with the exception of the LDS Church claim a full Priesthood Authority to include sealing in Poligymist marriage. .
