Hi I'm Andrew

I'm a volleyball player, I do public relations, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently going to college at the typical Mormon place, and I love it! I am studying public relations and I happen to think it's the best subject in the world (when done in the right way). I love playing all kinds of volleyball (indoor, outdoor, and beach).

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon, simply, because the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the church of God. I believed that through the honest, sincere study of the word of God (Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants) that man can become edified and learn what we must do in this life. However, those are just words until we ask our Heavenly Father if they are true. If He loves us, as hopefully most think He does, then He will tell us if they are true. Want to know how I know that? I did it myself, and I found out for myself.

How I live my faith

I learn from my mistakes and the mistakes of others. I go to church every week, and I read my scriptures every day. Also, I am willing to make tough decisions to do what I know my Heavenly Father wants me to.

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Andrew
I get the impression that people think it is easier to marginalize what they don't understand, or buy into the popular opinion on a subject rather than do the research themselves. So, it's easy to say that Mormonism is a cult, because people don't know much about the religion. The pillars of Mormonism are easily discovered by reading the canon of the LDS church, looking through LDS.org or talking to the missionaries. The Latter-day Saint people believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior, God the Eternal Father and in the Holy Ghost. We believe that God speaks to prophets today, as He did anciently, and that we are saved through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
