Hi I'm Chase

I'm a magician. I love interacting with people. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 4 boys. I love all of my brothers and my mom and dad very much. I am currently serving as a full time missionary in the Utah Salt Lake City South Mission. I am a magician and a balloon twister. I love talking to people either one-on-one or in front of huge crowds.

Why I am a Mormon

I know this is the true church of Jesus Christ. I have put Moroni's challenge to the test (Morono 10:3-5) and have gained a sure testimony of this wonderful Gospel. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God and that Thomas S. Monson is God's holy annointed prophet here upon the earth. I know that Jesus Christ lives and that "he shall stand in the latter day upon the earth" (Job 19:25). I promise anyone who reads this that if they put their faith in God and ask him if this Gospel is true they will, as I have, gain a testimony of this wonderful work.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a full time missionary and I love every second of it.

What do Mormons believe about "eternal life?"

Chase
We believe that eternal life means living forever with our Heavenly Father. Eternal is the "greatest of all the gifts of God" (D&C 14:7) Show more Show less

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Chase
We are asked to give 10% of our income (tithing) to help build the kingdom of God on earth. The money is used to build church buildings, temples, maintaining these buildings, making copies of the scriptures, and anything else that helps build the kingdom. The blessings that come from this are greater than we can imagine. Just to prove my point, let me tell you a story about my parents and the blessings they recieve from living the law of tithing: My parents were newly married. I was about 4 months old. Both of my parents were still in college studying in the medical field. As you can imagine, money was pretty tight. They both needed a computer to complete their school work. They had been saving up for a while but were struggling with the bills. At one point, it came down to either paying their tithing or buying the computer. They thought about it and decided to pay their tithing. About 3 days after they payed their tithing my dad recieved a check in the mail from his work that was just enough to buy their computer. Ever since then, my parents have had a particularly avid enthusiasm for paying their tithing and have taught me and my brothers to be the same way. Show more Show less

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Chase
They will testify to you of the truthfulness of this Gospel. They will testify that they know notice how I say "know", not think that Jesus Christ lives. They will testify that they know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that Thomas S. Monson is God's prophet upon the earth.  Show more Show less

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Chase
Absolutly. We believe the Bible and the Book of Mormon to be holy scripture. I challenge anyone who thinks that they are 2 totally contradictory records to find any discrepansy in the teachings found therein. Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Chase
It is one of the greatest blessings (if not the greatest blessing) for us to have the true church of Jesus Christ upon the earth today. Being a member of this church has brought me such great happiness that I can't think of any good reason why anyone would not want to be a part of it. Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Chase
 The Book of Mormon is an ancient record written by ancient prophets, starting with Nephi, who fled from Jerusalem with his family and was led by God to discover the "land of promise" the Americas. Nephi started the record and it was passed down through the generations to other prophets like Jacob, Mosiah, Alma, Ether, and Mormon. The last of the Book of Mormon prophets was a man named Moroni, who hid the records in a hill approximately 400 years after the birth of the Savior. Later, in the 1800s, Moroni appeared to the young Joseph Smith and revealed to him where he had placed the record. Later, Joseph would translate the record into the Book of Mormon. To answer the most common inquiry about the Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith TRANSLATED the Book, he did not write it. Show more Show less
