Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family, and as a boy I was taken to the LDS church and I learned a lot about Jesus Christ and about what Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints hold to be true. And now when I talk to people they say "well see you were born a Mormon and so you are one" but the more I think about that statement the more I realize it's not true. I realized that although I was born into this Religion, that is not the reason that I am still a member of it. I am still a member because I went through a period in my life where I questioned my beliefs and the beliefs of my parents and I did some soul searching. And after some scripture study and some intensive praying I gained a witness from my Father in Heaven that this is the Truth, that this is where he wants me to be in my life, and that I need to stick with it no matter what. It was after that point that I really started trying to be involved more in church and elsewhere. And even though in not perfect and I have made some pretty big mistakes I know that God loves me and is willing to forgive and let me try again to do better. And that through Christ I can have true happiness in this life and in the life to come.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by firstly trying to be a good church going guy. I read my scriptures, pray, and participate in the church and the community. So far in my life I have tried to participate in my congregation by just being of service. When I was younger I would help to distribute the communion to the congregation, and when I got older I was able to help by going to members homes and helping to build them up in there lives. Now as a 20 year old I am serving as a missionary for 2 years to go to people’s homes and share the gospel with them so that they can come nearer to Christ and feel the happiness that I do.

What do Mormons believe about the Holy Ghost? Who is the Holy Ghost?

Chris
The Holy Ghost is a member of the Godhead which means that he has a special role in this life that is directly in line with the purpose of God. the holy Ghost acts as a messenger for God, God sends him to us to help us know if something we are seeing, hearing, or reading is truly of God by causing us to feel peace, comfort, love, and many other fruits of the spirit (found in Galatians 5:21, 22) another thing is that we are sanctified through the reception of the Holy Ghost after we accept Jesus Christ as our Savior, repent of our sins and are baptized by the authority of God. All in all the Holy Ghost does many things but over all he acts as an individual guide for us in this life to help us choose the right over the wrong. Show more Show less
