Hi I'm Jordan

I Just returned from serving a mission in Calgary, Canada. I work at my families Restaurant. And I am a Mormon.

About Me

My family owns a restaurant I am a Business Management Student at BYU. I love playing sports and being active. I love my family and the opportunity I have being with them. My family, and most importantly my relationship with Heavenly Father is what brings me the most happiness.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is the only way I can have lasting peace and Happiness in my life. I know that as I follow the principles and doctrines in Christ gospel that I can overcome the trials in my life. Its through his Restored Gospel that I can live with God again. I know this to be true because I read the Book of Mormon everyday and have prayed to God and asked him specifically if it is true.I know that anyone who reads it will gain the same knowledge learn more truth about God and his love for us than by any other book.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a better person each and every day. I fail often but putting my effort in is what brings me the most joy. I try to be the person I know my Heavenly Father would want me to be in word and in deed.

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.

Jordan
During Christ time the 12 Apostles were given the authority to act in Gods name (the Priethood) With that authority the 12 Aspostles were given the specific assignment to be special witnesses of Christ. Christ directed the affairs of his church through the apostles during his earthly ministry and after his ascension to Heaven. Unfortunatley over time the Apostles were rejected and even killed and the priesthood was removed from the earth and there was no one given the authority to be a special witness of Christ and run Christ church. When the time was right Christ restored his gospel and his Church and brought back that original organization that excited when he originally organized his church. He is at the head of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and instructs, through revelation, the 12 Apostles in this day and age how to run and minister his church. Show more Show less
