Hi I'm Adam

I grew up in Texas, have lived in the south most of my life & was a philosophy student when I met the missionaries.

About Me

I am an Education major working on my 2nd Bachelors. Film buff, staunch Libertarian (which is also consistent with my beliefs about the gospel). Love animal rescue, homeopathic medicine & organic foods.

Why I am a Mormon

Because Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God. I took Moroni's challenge, God the Father answered my prayers & I have continued to grow in the grace & love of my Savior Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

Every day I try to draw closer to my Savior from the words that he has revealed to us from the Bible as well as through the works of Joseph Smith. Particularly the Book of Mormon, but all things which have come from true Prophets of God.

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

Adam
Joseph Smith said that if you teach people correct principles they will govern themselves. I have my own political beliefs, they are not official, but like with everything after I have prayed & studied an issue Heavenly Father has shown me how I should vote. For each of us it is necessary that we study things out in our mind then ask Heavenly Father what he would have us do about a particular issue. He will reveal it to us, if we honestly seek after His will & kingdom. Show more Show less

In whom should we have faith?

Adam
There is one thing people often forget to distinguish which is that faith & belief while they are similar terms are not synonymous. Faith specifically refers to a living, trusted covenant relationship with our Heavenly Father through his only begotten Son Jesus Christ. Belief can be something which is hypothetical & true yet unproven, or it can be a mere fantasy in fictional world or concept. So for me it is important to distinguish between the two that we might have everlasting life through true knowledge of our Father in Heaven through Jesus Christ & the gospel restored through Joseph Smith the Prophet.
