Hi I'm Ben Martin

I'm kinda nerdy :), loveable, I try to keep a smile on my face, I'm an Insurance agent, I'm bilingual, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I going into computer programming/computer animated design Not that they are really similar but because i am interested in both of them. I'll be signing up for college this coming spring semester. I am originally from Arizona, but Texas is the place to be right now D. I like good books and i'm of big fan of rock, alternative and Videogames are fun too. I love my family and friends a lot I don't know where I'd be without them. D

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon because I seen the good that this church has done not only for me, but for others too. Service project after service project i have seen peoples lives change... and really the reason why I am a member is because well I took the promise from James 1:5 to heart. Then, I have felt the holy ghost express to me that the church is true through the promptings of the of the Holy Spirit. Not only that but, haha one of my favorite phrases is that we DO WORK!

How I live my faith

Well, this is kind of an interesting question haha. So, I guess I'd say that the way i live it is the way i am. I looking for opportunities to help others, not only because they need it, but because well shoot. I makes me feel good on the inside too. Giving your best friend a hug when they are down. Being there for those who need you. Ha and don't forget to smile :).

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

Ben Martin
Well... how to make this as blatent and clear as possible... Yes. Haha it's that easy. We use the bible. As a matter of fact we are studying the new testament during sunday school this year. The bible has a lot of sweet stories with a lot of good advice. So, to be frank... do human beings need lungs to breathe? Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Ben Martin
Basically the Book of Mormon is proof that God lives. Not lived. That God loves us, not loved us. That it doesn't matter where you grew up or how. He wants every single one of his children to come back to him, because he loves them. Simple enough I'd say.  Show more Show less

What are some of the ways that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints helps those around the world?

Ben Martin
 Well it is always nice to have a good friend. To be able to go out and give someone a push. Or to be able to help them when they stand in need of help. Service projects. Soup kitchens. Grunt work that no one wants to do.Yah. Its always good to help you fellow man Show more Show less

Why did your church previously practice plural marriage (polygamy)?

Ben Martin
Well. Simple. People like simple right? When God commands that we do something... we should do it. Abraham had to deal with the same thing. So, at the time God told the prophet of the time to practice it. Now, he has said not to. Simple. Show more Show less
