Hi I'm Jeremy

I'm American, but my heart beats Mexico. I run long distance and live on street tacos. I Just Do It, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love speaking Spanish, playing sports, and listening to Bachata music. I am trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. I'm going to college at BYU, but it feels like my major is stuck on "undeclared." I was one of those Mormon missionaries (I served in the Texas Fort Worth Mission, speaking Spanish) that may or may not have knocked on your door, and I loved it! Me encanta hablar el espanol, jugar deportes, y escuchar Bachata. No se que voy a ser cuando por fin madure. Asisto a la BYU, pero mi titulo no se ha declarado todavia. Yo era uno de esos misioneros (yo servi en la mision Texas Fort Worth) Mormones que tal vez tocaron tu puerta, y me encantaba!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because Joseph Smith knelt down in a grove of trees and asked God which church was true. God and Jesus Christ appeared to him, and told him that no church on the earth was true. Later, Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon, as proof of his prophetic call. There is only one church that uses the Book of Mormon in its fullness, and so it is easy to see, if the Book of Mormon is false, that church in turn would have to be false. In turn, if the Book of Mormon is true, and only one church uses it, that would mean that every other church is missing a part of the truth, leading to the conclusion that only the church that uses the Book of Mormon can be true. The key to knowing if the Book of Mormon is true is reading it, and asking God if is is His word or not. I did that, I knelt down and prayed, and God, through the Holy Ghost, told me that the Book was true! That is why I'm a Mormon. Yo soy un Mormon porque Jose Smith se arrodillo en un bosque y el pregunto a Dios cual iglesia fue la verdadera. Dios y JesuCristo se le aparecieron, y le dijeron que ninguna iglesia en la faz de la tierra fue la verdadera. Luego, Jose tradujo el Libro de Mormon como prueba o evidencia de su llamada profetica. No mas hay una iglesia que usa el libro completo, entonces si el libro es falso, la iglesia que lo usa tambien tendria que ser falsa. En turno, si el libro es veridico, y no mas hay una iglesia que lo usa, a las de mas iglesias, les faltaria un pedazo de la verdad, senalandonos que si las iglesias no tienen una parte de la verdad, no pueden ser correctas, y que la iglesia que emplea el libro verdadero seria la iglesia de Dios. La clave en saber eso es estudiar el libro y preguntar a Dios si es cierto o no. Yo lo hice, me arrodille, y Dios, por el Espiritu Santo, me dijo que el libro era verdadero! Por eso, soy Mormon!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the small things. Reading the scriptures every day, establishing a relationship with God through daily prayer, going to church, serving others, repenting, and looking for chances to share the Gospel are what I do to live what I believe Vivo mi fe por hacer las cosas chicas. El estudiar las Escrituras cada dia, el establecer una relacion con mi Padre Celestial por la oracion diaria, el asistir a la Iglesia, el servir a los de mas, el arrepentirme, y buscar oportunidades de compartir el Evangelio son las cosas que hago yo para vivir lo que creo

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Jeremy
Absolutely! If God thought that we needed prophets once upon a time, why would He change His mind? A prophet is not like training wheels, or better said, it isn't something that is needed only until a certain point, a living prophet is essential to receiving God's complete truth. It is true that a personal realtionship with God is independent of any other person, but just as only John the Baptist baptized Jesus Christ, there are certain things that can only be done by prophets. Claro! Si antes Dios pensaba que el mundo nesecitaba profetas, para que cambiaria su mente? Un profeta no es una cosa que deja de estar de moda, sino que es una cosa requisita para poder recibir la verdad completa del Senor. Si es cierto que una relacion personal con Dios es independiente de cualquier otra persona, pero tal como Juan el Bautista bautizo a JesuCristo, hay ciertas cosas que se pueden hacer solamente por los profetas.
