Hi I'm Brian Gates

Hi, I was born and raised in Los Angeles County. I have High-Functioning Asperger's, ADHD, OCD and Turret's. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was diagnosed with High-Functioning Asperger's Syndrome, ADHD, OCD and Turret's Syndrome, and Anxiety and Depression. These things don’t define me and they don’t determine my destiny. I love the Great Outdoors, Running, Hiking, Martial Art's, Church Dances, Rollerblading and Ice Skating, Paintball and Air-soft, Traditional American Values and The Constitution, Most things Comic-Con Related, Listening to Music and Singing. I am enrolled in a business within the Health and Wellness Industry which products have allowed me to stay off my previous medications. I now live in Utah and I love it here.

Why I am a Mormon

Both my parents are converts and I was born into the church and through the many trials I have experienced in my life, I have grown a testimony of Jesus Christ and His Everlasting and All Encompassing Atonement.

How I live my faith

As of right now, I am serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Brian Gates
During the Atonement, the suffering in Gethsemane and the hanging on the cross, Christ felt every pain, discomfort, every negative feeling, heart ache, every sin, loneliness, every weakness and imperfection of humanity and is therefore able to reach out to all who chose to take upon them his name and after all we can do in trying to do what's right, He makes up for it.
