Why I am a Mormon

I see a bigger picture. Not the whole picture, but still bigger than what i used to see. I know who I am. I know where I come from. I know why I'm here. I know where I want to go after I leave. I also know hat needs to be done - why wouldn't I help others who need to know these things?

How I live my faith

It's not easy living in conditions where responsibilities stretch you in 4 different directions. Somehow, it all gets managed. All a matter of priority, I suppose. They're all important, after all... At church, I am part of a Presidency that takes care of the men's group (called the Elder's Quorum). This includes teaching and training them in their responsibilities. But the real test is at work, and even sometimes at school (university). In these situations, I participate in everything enthusiastically - unless they are against my standards. Some people say that the Church gives me too many standards to live. The truth is, I make these standards (given by the Lord Himself) as my own. Just as a suit of armour can be protection or hindrance, so too are my standards my way of life.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

This would be asking about the commandment known as "the Law of Tithing", yes? As to why members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints are asked to pay tithing 10 of their income, it boils down to this Who is actually asking us to do so? Our Heavenly Father, of course. Now, in order to find out if this is really from Him, we'd have to ask Him, wouldn't we? That's why we pray to know James 15 Tithing is never about money, but always about faith in God. Show more Show less
