Question 39

If the LDS Church is a restoration of the New Testament church organization, how can a boy of 12 be a deacon?  (See 1 Timothy 3:8-12.)  The argument that "times have changed" cannot be used, since Brigham Young very strongly agreed with Paul that a deacon's calling was not the business of young boys (Journal of Discourses 2:89).
