Hi I'm Justin

I'm a college student. I'm an Information Systems Professional. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student, I Love swimming, water polo, cycling, rock climbing, Ultimate Frisbee, playing video games and just hanging out.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints, I nearly always believed it but there were times when I sincerely doubted it. I thought the teachings of the church were good, but one day I felt I had to know for myself. I was always taught if you have a question and are sincere, God will answer your prayer. I remember kneeling down and asking God if the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints was his true and living church. I recieved my answer by the power of the Holy Spirit. I knew then and I know now that this church is God's church and I Love the blessings it has brought into my life to be a part of God's church. I'm definately not perfect but the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ is helping me become a better person, the ordinances of the Gospel give me greater knowledge and application of the cleansing power of Jesus Christ and his infinate Atonement.

How I live my faith

I love my faith because it's about becoming something better. Every day is a new opportunity to learn grow and change, to become more like our savior Jesus Christ. I live my faith by doing my all to become more like my savior everyday, I fall short and I make mistakes but it's a process and I continue on it everyday.

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

Justin
To me everything is a witness that God exists, our bodies are amazingly complex yet they usually work with no real issues. The order to the planet with it's seasons. The Book of Mormon and the Bible used hand in hand. They make everything make sense together, History, Religion, our purpose in life, and our families. Everything Witnesses that there is a supreme creator Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Justin
The Book of mormon was written by Prophets in America from 600 BC to 400 AD, it contains the teachings of those prophets, and their witnessing of the divinity of Jesus Christ. It is Another testimony from the Ancient inhabitants of the American continent that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. It seems silly to think that God would only give his word to Jew and Gentile in the old world, his word is for all people and this record provides another testimony that he is the same God and that Jesus Christ it the Savior for all the world.

Why did your church previously practice plural marriage (polygamy)?

Justin
It was a commandment of God, I honestly don't know all the reasons God commanded what he did. I guess it was to try the early church members faith. However God told us to stop in September of 1890 and we haven't practice it since. We believe in revelation, a living God who still speaks. I find it amazing that God still speaks to us today, He loves us just as much as the people in the old world. It makes sense that He would speak to us today as well. Show more Show less
