Hi I'm Rex

I'm one who wishes for goodness. I'm one who stands for the light. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 21 years old and wanting to go on a full time mission. I've been attending collage and have been exceedingly blessed by God. I am so grateful for the many blessings of the gospel as they have lifted my soul and helped me draw closer to my God.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I want to be one, and because I know that this is God's true church. 

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing good. 

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Rex
If you believe that the founding fathers of the United States of America were inspired by God then you believe in personal revelation. How else would the men of God be inspired? We believe that God speaks to us and that if you'll ask then he'll speak to you. We believe that he would never and will never cease to speak and communicate with his children. If you believe that you are supposed to do something good then you also believe in revelation. Because God inspires us to do good. God inspires us to give righteously and be kind, humble, and good in every way. If you believe that people come into your life with a specific meaning and purpose then you believe that God speaks to them and that God directs their lives If you believe in these people then you believe in personal revelation. If you believe that people are inspired to do good deeds and lead movements that will change the world and that God does directs these people's efforts then you believe in revelation. Wouldn't it be horrible if nobody was inspired to do good if noone special came at the right time or in the right place. We believe that God speaks. We believe that God speaks today through a prophet and that he guides and directs our church like the church of the old and new testiment. We believe that the church spoken of in the Bible, the church that believed in divine revelation, has been restored and the the true gosple is on the Earth.   Show more Show less

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Rex
Life with all of it's imperfections, trials, and joys. Life with all events that cause us to change. It's predictable. Life is hard. Life is joyous. Life is worth it. There can only be one word that would ever be able to define all of it and that is God. Show more Show less

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Rex
God does not expect us to be blind. He gives us the means whereby we may see and that comes by faith in his prophets, Christ's commandments, and more especially Christ. This eventually will lead to an understanding and knowledge that God lives. It is the exactly the same as with science. We can choose to believe what scientists say and eventually come to a knowledge that what they're saying is true through our own experience, or we can experiment on their words and through this we can also know that what they're saying is true. God works in the way we all gain knowledge, but we need to have faith in something before we gain anything. Faith is the process by which we gain everything. We had to have faith that we could walk before we even tried to walk. We had to have faith that there was meaning in the words our parents were speaking before we could speak ourselves. We have to believe that something is out there before we can learn anything, and we have to believe in God before knowing that he's real. So pray to God the Father in the name of Jesus Christ. Have faith in good works, righteous action, and through keeping his commandments you can know that he lives and I say this in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.  Show more Show less
