During the persecution period of the early Church, the Lord directed Joseph Smith that evil men were seeking to poison the Sacramental wine. Therefore the Saints were to make their own grape juice. Since that became hard to do at they were being expelled from areas, the Church was directed to use water. And since the substance was symbolic anyway, crackers, ...
I think that Exodus 20:1-6 pretty clearly speaks to this (see also Deuteronomy 5:6-10). This is not specifically a Mormon answer, but Mormons also follow the teachings of the Bible. (Articles of Faith #8)
The answer to this question is by no means short or simple. A great many principles were corrupted over the course of almost 1,700 years from the time Christ's apostles were martyred and Joseph Smith was called to restore the Church. However, I would say that the most significant principle which was corrupted very early in the great apostasy was the ...
Within Mormon (LDS) theology, you can't speak of Church organization without speaking of priesthood authority. The Priesthood exists without the Church but the Church cannot exist without the Priesthood. The Priesthood is the power and authority given by God to act in the name of Jesus Christ.

Especially in recent years, I feel like this principle has been de-emphasized. Based on those quotes, it certainly sounds like, and reason seems to agree that God has a God, but that information is irrelevant to us. The most important principle is that for us, in this realm, there are no other Gods. I also don't think it is a coincidence that the ...
Lets go back to John 5:19-20 "Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than ...
"Our" represents to all Humans across the world, which means we all have originated from our heavenly father, and we are his children. He guides us the way like the father guides his children. we are calling him as heavenly father because, it is how Jesus Christ, our teacher who thought us to do so.
