Hi I'm Conner Allred

I like Cars. I like Bikes. I like Taking Pictures. Hablo Español. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 21 year old from Salt Lake City, UT. I love cars, photography, and I love to study the Spanish language. I am currently serving a mission in the Hartford, Connecticut Mission - Spanish speaking. I have 2 beautiful sisters and 6 awesome step-siblings! Soy un joven de 21 anos de Salt Lake City, Utah, EEUU. Aunque soy gringo, me gusta pensar que no lo soy . Me gustan los carros, la fotografia, y me encanta estudiar el idioma espanol. Actualmente estoy sirviendo en una mision en Hartford, Connecticut - Hispanohablante, y regreso en Diciembre!. Tengo 2 hermanas muy hermosas y 6 hermanastros super buenos!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have wonderful parents who brought me up in the church. They were married in the temple after my father served a mission in Spain. Unfortunately when I turned 13 my parents divorced. They have both been re-married to different spouses. This among other things made me lose my faith in the church. When I turned 19 I watched my friend give a talk or short sermon, in our church and by a small feeling of comfort I knew that the Holy Ghost was telling me that I needed to change and serve a mission. Since then, I have gained a testimony of the Atonement, or sacrifice, of Jesus Christ and the cleansing of the soul that He can give us. Soy mormon porque tengo padres maravillosos que me criaron en la iglesia. Se casaron en el templo despues que mi padre habia servido en una mision en Espana. Lamentablamente, al cumplir 13 anos yo, mis padres se divorciaron. Los dos, ahora, se han casado de nuevo con otras personas. Esto, entre otras experiencias, me hizo perder mi fe en la iglesia. Poco despues de cumplir 19 anos escuche a mi amigo dar un discurso en nuestra capilla y por un sentimiento sencillo de consuelo me di cuenta de que el Espiritu Santo me dijo que yo necesitaba cambiar y servir en una mision tambien. Desde aquel dia he logrado un testimonio propio de la expiacion, o sea, sacrificio del Senor Jesucristo y la limpieza del alma que nos puede dar.

How I live my faith

Simply, I share it! I am a missionary and share it with as many people as I can. But most importantly, I do as Paul told Timothy in the New Testament "Be thou an example among the believers." I strive to keep the commandments and make sure my life is in line with the standards that my loving Heavenly Father has set for me. Sencillemente, la comparto! Soy misionario y comparto mi fe con tanta gente posible. Pero mas importante, hago como Pablo dijo a Timoteo en el Nuevo Testamento "Se ejemplo entre los creyentes." Me esfuerzo por guardar los mandamientos y asegurarme de que mi vida esta de acuerdo con las normas que mi Amoroso Padre Celestial me ha puesto.

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

Conner Allred
Of course we do. The Bible is the word of God given to us through his people in the ancient Holy Land. The Bible is one of the study materials that God has given us in order to learn more about Him and His plan for us. This scripture from the Book of Mormon explains exactly what I cannot. 2Nephi 297-8 Know ye not that there are more nations than one? Know ye not that I, the Lord your God, have created all men, and that I remember those who are upon the isles of the sea and that I rule in the heavens above and in the earth beneath and I bring forth my word unto the children of men, yea, even upon all the nations of the earth? Wherefore murmur ye, because that ye shall receive more of my word? Know ye not that the testimony of two nations is a witness unto you that I am God, that I remember one nation like unto another? Wherefore, I speak the same words unto one nation like unto another. And when the two nations shall run together the testimony of the two nations shall run together also. Si, creemos en la Biblia. La biblia es la palabra de Dios que se nos da por medio de Su gente en la antigua Tierra Santa. La biblia es una de las materiales que Dios nos ha dado para que aprendamos mas de El y el plan que tiene para nosotros. Esta escritura del Libro de Mormon explica exactamente lo que no puedo, yo. ¿No sabéis que hay más de una nación? ¿No sabéis que yo, el Señor vuestro Dios, he acreado a todos los hombres, y que me acuerdo de los que viven en las islas del mar?

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Conner Allred
We do not worship Joseph Smith. We look up to him as a great leader and as a Prophet of the Lord. I like to answer this question with a question, do we as Christians worship Moses, or Noah? If not, why do we talk so much about them? Because they did great things, they brought us closer to Christ. That is what Joseph Smith did, and that is why he is important! No adoramos a Jose Smith. Lo admiramos como lider y como un Profeta del Senor. Me gusta reponder a esta pregunta con otra pregunta. Nosotros como Cristianos adoramos a Moises, o a Noe? Si no, por que hablamos tanto de ellos? Porque ellos hicieron grandes cosas, nos acercaron a Cristo. Eso es lo que hizo Jose Smith, y por eso es tan importante! Show more Show less
