Hi I'm johnathan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 36 yr old white male, I am currently single, I am dating a lovely young woman, that I plan on marrying. I am just a normal guy, I am a salesman, I love sports and I love to cook.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a strict united pentecostal, I was even a minster for the church, however i always felt like I wasn't a good enough christian, or that I was missing part of the bigger picture.I would question doctrine, only to told "that is not relevant to salvation, so do not worry bout it!" Heavenly father put in the bible, so it has to be inportant, doesn't it? I also had trouble beliveing that only the upc people were going to heaven .I soon backslid and walked away from god, but always in my heart ,I prayed lord I want the truth, and I want to be your servant. I met my girlfriend online and knew she was lds. When i was a child I lived in Utah ,and my father hated the mormons, I grew up beliving half truths and lies . Because I wanted to know Jennifer (my girlfriend) I began searching lds,.org and other websites. I began seeing that this IS the way I beleived too!!! I went to church with her on sunday ,and began meeting with the missionaries that very same day.I felt a peace come over me, all the questions I had had, were finally being answered. The puzzle pieces finally fit!!! I have been baptised, and given the holy ghost, I am excited to go to church on sunday , because I know I finally have Gods truth, not a bunch of man made rules , suited to their own views. If you are searching , and you feel like you are missing a peice or you dont feel worthy enough, pray to heavnly father, and he will give you the truth that this is the way to heavenly father.

How I live my faith

I have just joined the church,but already heavenly father has blessed me tremendously.He has all ready opened doors for me to witness to my nephew and his fiance, and my father. I tr y to follow in the footsteps that jesus has set for us, and I have accepted our state president challenge to read the book of mormon by general confernce. I also believein praying and studying before I go to bed.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

johnathan
no, we know that joseph smith was a prophet of god, He saw that the churches of his time werent the true church of jesus christ,so he prayed to heavenly father ,and heavenly father and Jesus christ appeared to him, and thats where how the mormon faith was started. It sounds strange, but for 2000 years, Heavenly father used prophets to talk to men, Why would he suddenly stop, it is common sense that he still talks to use thru prophets. Show more Show less
