Hi I'm Matt

I'm a Life Guard, Emt, Water polo Enthusiast, Backpacker and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Right now I'm on a mision for two years. Before I left I worked as a lifeguard and got my Emt-I certification. When I go home I plan on finishing Fire School and Working hard for the rest of my life. I Grew up in Utah where I lived in the same house my whole life. Through out my high school years i spent my time playing Water Polo, swimming, and rock climbing. I grew up in a relitivly small family just me and two sisters. I had the best family that any one could ask for and they helped to shape me into the person I am today.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon well that's a good question. I'm a Mormon because I know that our Heavanly Father loves every single one of us so much. That he has a plan for each of us to return to live with him after this life. I love my family so much and I know in order to be able to live with them forever we need to make certain promises with God. The Pristhood authority is the only way these promises can be made valid in God's eyes. the only place that the Pristhood is found is in the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints. Because that authority was brought back to the earth in our day in the very same way it was brought anctiontly. By the laying on of hands just as Christ laid hands on the original 12 apostles. I know that our Hevanly Father did indeed send Peter, James, and John to hand that authority on this is the only place it is held. and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

To live my faith I try to better my self each and every day to try and grow in closer harmony with the Savior and his teachings. Study is one of the best ways I know that any one can build ther Faith because before we have it we must build it. I strive my hardest to live all of the comandments of God knowing I will make mistakes i strive to repent as soon as I mess up. I know that Jesus Christ is the only way back to heavan after we have done all that we can do.

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Matt
The Bible is the word of God we read from it because it is the account of the accient Prophets and Apostles that lived long ago in the times just before the birth of Christ throught the time when the last original Apostle where killed. Show more Show less

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.

Matt
In the New Testament Ephesians 2 19-20 it states that Jesus Christ church will be built on the foundation of Prophets and Apostles Jesus Christ being the chef corner stone. The only way Christ church is set up is the way he did it. That's with Prophets and Apostles. This is the way Christ made it and we fallow every thing that he taught. Show more Show less
