Hi I'm Colton

I'm from Nevada. I snowmobile. I'm a classic car lover. I love old country music. I love corndogs. Yes, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints my entire life. I really love spending time with my family. I love hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, snowboarding, Mountain Dew, hangin' out with the peeps, and eating. I recently returned home from a mission in Oregon. I just like having a good time and I enjoy having a good laugh every so often.

Why I am a Mormon

I have had great parents that have raised me on good morals. There was a time in my life when I did not know what I believed and I really didn't know why I was a Mormon. I really came to know why after I read the Book of Mormon and came to Oregon to share the Gospel by serving a full time mission. I am a Mormon because I have a knowledge that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and that God loves us and speaks to us today through living prophets. I am absolutley sure that I am on the path that my Heavenly Father wants me to take and I know I have been blessed for sharing these simple truths to other people. The only thing that matters is that Christ died for me, and it is my responsibility to do everything I can to follow Him. Simply put, I love Jesus Christ and His Church

How I live my faith

 I live my faith by reading the Scriptures every day, saying prayers, and attending church every Sunday. I know that I am not perfect, but I live my faith by trying to improve my life each day. I try to keep an Eternal perspective in everything that I do.

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Colton
They just don't understand. We know that Salvation come in and only through the Lord Jesus Christ. Christ is the head of this church just as he was in New Testament times. We follow the same principles of Salvation as did the Church 2,000 years ago. A cult could not follow Jesus Christ as we do, and could not produce the peace that we gain from the teachings of Jesus Christ Show more Show less

What is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' attitude regarding homosexuality and same sex marriage?

Colton
First of all, the Bible clearly teaches that homosexuality is against God's commandments Moses talks about it in the Old Testament and Paul teaches it to the Romans in the New Testament. Any honest believer of Christianity would accept that such practices are against the commandments of God. Modern day prophets also tell us that marriage is to be between a man and a woman. God loves all of his children the same, but Just because somebody has tendancies to be attracted to the same sex does not mean that God's laws change. We believe that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we can be healed of passions that may dull our spirituality. We do not look down upon any one person who is involved in these practices, but we are here to say that help is available to help overcome all sin. The same goes with any type of sin.
