Hi I'm Camron

I'm a Jazz Musician, I'm a Muscle car fanatic, I'm a missionary, and i'm a Mormon

About Me

I love Jazz Music, I was lead Alto saxophone in the John Coltrane combo at snow college (a branch of Julliard) I was also second chair alto in the Big Band there. Im also into Heavy Metal, christian metal that is. I was going to be a studio musician since i can play piano, sax, drums, and a few others but family is to important to me both the one im apart of and hope to have to be taking care of them with a small and unpredictable salary. So ill probably go into medical. I believe that moderation is one of the greatest principles the gospel has ever been brought into light through our savior and brother Jesus Christ. I believe in working hard and playing hard weather it be music or school. I also believe that if your not having fun no matter what your doing that your doing it for the wrong reasons. I believe very strongly in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints, one because it literally makes sense that God speaks, not spoke. And I encourage anyone to read this wonderful book if they wish to grow closer to their savior. I know my redeemer lives, and currently I'm serving a full time mission in Albuquerque New Mexico to try to bring others to this wonderful knowledge that I myself have acquired. I was born in the church, but that doesn't mean that I took that for my testimony. My testimony was gained just the same as anyone else, by finding out for myself. God doesn't lie, if you lack wisdom ask god.( James 1:5) If you want to know what we teach is true ask god he will tell you by the holy spirit. And you can take that to the bank. Anyone who wants to grow closer to Christ should read the Book of Mormon, I submit my firm testimony that whosoever does will grow closer to their God than by any other book, including the bible. Don't believe me? Check it out for yourself then ask god, the Eternal father, your father, in the name of Christ if it be true, and if you ask sincerely, with the intent on acting on any witness you receive he will manifest the truth of it unto you. Try me, ask god, what do you have to loose? I love my savior and know that Joseph Smith was indeed a prophet of the almighty God, and I know this without a shadow of a doubt, because I asked, and I got my witness. And I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I have gained a witness of the truthfulness of this gospel in which i preach, because I had the faith to ask my Father in Heaven if what I've been taught was true. Because the gospel makes me a better student, friend, brother, missionary, and eventually husband and father.

How I live my faith

I obey what my savior taught and try to live up to what he would want me to be. I try to develop the attributes my savior had and try to be more Christ-like. I use the talents and abilities I've been given to lift up others and to glorify my Father in Heaven. I stand for what I believe in and try to share the knowledge and blessings that I've been given as much as possible. I attend my meetings and am serving a mission, to better myself and my fellow man by preaching the fullness of the everlasting gospel, and by doing service to help the physical part of the people i serve along with the spiritual. I try to be like Jesus, That's how i live my faith, and though I'm not perfect i strive to be the best I can be.

Why do you have 12 Apostles? They were just meant to be around for the time of Jesus Christ, not to be replaced with new apostles.

We believe in the same organization that existed in the primitive church (Article of Faith #4) If you study or read the bible in Ephesians 4 you will see a direct quote from Christ that his Church is founded upon Prophets, Apostals, Teachers adn so forth. And is to remain this way till we "come in the unity of faith". When Christ organized his church he set up twelve Apostals to aid him in the work of his ministry. If we believe in the same church that existed in the primitive era, wouldn't the same organization be found in the restored church? Show more Show less

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

To put this plainly: It has been standard procedure for God to talk to us through a Prophet since the world began, I or we believe that God speaks NOT spoke. We believe that he loves us and cares for all his children equally. To suggest that he spoke to his children in the past and leave us to find our own way today is simply absurd, we need a prophet today, in this day and age more than ever before. In a world of diminishing values and struggling character we need our Heavenly Father to show us the way. And our message is simple....he does. Show more Show less

What does Mormonism teach regarding baptism?

We teach that baptism is essential, we teach that baptism must be as Jesus was baptized: By immersion. We believe that infant baptism is a malpractice if you will. Why? Because children are alive in the light of Christ, through his atonement the effects of the fall are relinquished. We believe that children are pure and have no need for baptism till they are accountable and truly begin to understand right from wrong. To suggest that one baby will be saved because of baptism (sprinkling), and one who dies before they are is preposterous and denies the mercy and eternal love or Christ and the Father. God must be just, or else he would cease to be God. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

No one can attain perfection by themselves to suggest that we can attain our salvation by ourselves is false, but on the other hand to say that all we have to do is believe in Christ is also false, By grace we are saved after all we can do, faith without works is dead. Otherwise the purposes of God would be frustrated. By this I mean that we were sent here to prove ourselves, to see if we would do all things that God commands us. If we were saved no matter what just by saying we believe then what is the purpose of the commandments? We are here to grow and learn, to prepare to meet god. We need Grace to overcome our imperfections but we also need to qualify for our saviors mercy by doing our best and striving to be like him. Show more Show less
