*“you must confess Joseph Smith as a prophet of God in order to be saved.” (Journal of Discourses, vol. 9, p. 312).

*”My discourses are as good as Scripture.” (Journal of Discourses, vol. 13, p. 264)

*“I have never given any counsel that was wrong.” (Journal of Discourses, vol. 16, p. 161)

*Brigham Young compared his sermons with scripture. (Journal of Discourses, vol. 13, p. 95)

*”You are damned if you deny polygamy.” (Journal of Discourses, vol. 11, p. 269)

If you regard the above as Blblical, you either need a new Bible (preferably KJV), or to have your head examined.
