Hi I'm Joseph

I love to keep things simple, I'm a seeker of truth in all things, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in the Seattle Washington area, I love learning, anything that keeps me active and out doors, as well as spending time with close friends and music.

Why I am a Mormon

The more i experience in life, the more i learn, the more i pray, and the more i study the scriptures, the more i feel and know that Jesus is the Christ, God Loves each of us, God wants to help each of us, God is unchanging, Christ Lives, there is a purpose to life, that Christ orginized His church while he was on the earth, that that church has been restored again today under the name of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and that Christ still leads and guides His church through a living prophet. Just as he always has done.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to live the commandments to the best of my abilities, and trying to draw ever closer to Christ. I share my testimony with others in hope that they may experience the joy that i've felt from my testimony of Christ and a greater knowledge of God's love and his plan for us. Right now i get to do that all day everyday bacause I am serving a proselyting mission in the south eastern united states.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Joseph
The Bible is scripture. it is the word of God written by His prophets in the ancient Middle East. It is a record of Gods dealings with His people. In addition to the Bible we study out of The Book of Mormon which is God's word written by His prophets in the ancient Americas, as well as further revelation given to prophets of God in these days.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Joseph
We worship God the Father and Jesus Christ. We do not worship Joseph Smith, we hold deep respect for him as a great man and an instrument in the hands of God. Through Joseph Smith the Lord restored His church and His priesthood authority, which is used for the blessing of His people and the means through which Christ officiates His church. We talk about Joseph Smith so much because it is through him that Christ restored his kingdom to the earth. Coming to Know that Joseph Smith was called of God is comming to know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is God's kingdom on earth with Jesus Christ at the head, running and officiating the church through the priesthood authority.

What is the priesthood?

Joseph
The priesthood is authority given to man from God to act in His name. It is the authorithy that God uses to keep his church orginized, the doctrines pure, and to make sure that men do not use the church for their own personal gain or social recognition. This authority is the same authority the Moses had and that Christ gave to his origional twelve apostles. this authority allows man to serve Gods children in performing sacred ordinances for his children such as baptism and the blessing of the sacrament, Blessing those who are sick or otherwise afflicted, and serving in different leadership roles through out His church. Because this priesthood is from God, He expects those who hold it to follow Jesus Christ's example by serving with love, gentleness, diligence, and kindness, as well as living all of the commandments to high standards Show more Show less
