Hi I'm Oliver

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a dad of three little girls. I like to play sports and to go hunting. I enjoy my family and spending time working or playing with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I am a better person because I am a Mormon. Because we have a modern day prophet, I don't have to wonder what God wants me to do. God tells me through the prophet. Because of a prophet, I know that my family can be together forever. I know because of a prophet where I came from, why I am here on earth and where I am going after I leave this earth. When my father died, I didn't need to wonder if I would see him again. I know that I will. I love the scriptures. I love to read about Jesus Christ. Of His birth, life, death, and resurrection. I also love the Book of Mormon because I get to read more of the teachings of Jesus. I never get tired of learning more about Jesus.

How I live my faith

What I do at church is to tell people about our church and how it has helped me and my family.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Oliver
Our Heavenly Father has a plan for us. We needed to come to earth so that we could be tested, to see if we would follow God's commands. Because God knew that we would make mistakes, He sent Jesus to be our savior. Because Jesus died for us all, we can repent of our sins and be able to return to live with our Heavenly Father.

Why do you have 12 Apostles? They were just meant to be around for the time of Jesus Christ, not to be replaced with new apostles.

Oliver
When Jesus organized His Church, He called 12 Apostles. The first order of business for Apostles was to replace Judas. Paul taught us that built His Church on a foundation of Apostles. If a foundation falls, so does the structure. So without Apostles, the Church would fall. As history has testified, when the Apostles were killed, the Church then headed into apostasy. With no leadership the Church could not function. Today God has called Apostles to lead His Church again. Show more Show less
