Hi I'm Michael

I'm a Mormon...I'm a Christian.

About Me

I'm a husband, and my wife Susan and I have 3 children. I enjoy spending time with my wife and family. I enjoy writing about politics and political philosophy and the benefits of Judeo-Christian influence on our country.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I have not been able to find another church that truly restored the biblical church of Christ, from revelation through prophets and apostles, to a lay clergy, to the priesthood power present in ordinances such as baptism, and the bestowal of the gift of the Holy Ghost. I'm a member because I have received personal revelation that His church has been restored upon the face of the earth, just as it was after other times of apostasy such as when Noah brought it back...and was laughed at; then restored again through Abraham...and he had to leave the place of his birth; and then again through Moses after the Egyptian captivity.

How I live my faith

I endeavor every day to have the "mind of Christ" and the Apostle Paul taught, and treat others as the Savior would if he were here.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Michael
Sure I do. People have been deceived into believing that there are no prophets throughout biblical history. The first thing the adversary does when there is a prophet on the earth is to try to convince you that there are no such things or that the time has passed. Think about it...when Noah preached to the people and prophesied that the flood was coming, they laughed at him. Even amongst the Jews, they disregarded and/or imprisoned Isaiah and Jeremiah because they prophesied that Israel would be carried away captive into Babylon. I believe that the thing that one must overcome in order to believe that there are prophets alive today is get over the mindset that tells you that prophets have to be splitting the Red Sea or calling down fire from heaven in order to be considered as such. For every great miracle wrought by a biblical prophet there are many more who simply preached about the coming Messiah. Think of the prophets like Joel, Amos, Hosea and Habbakuk. These were prophets sent by God, but they were "boring" because they weren't performing miracles or commanding armies. The people disregarded their counsels at their spiritual peril. Let us not repeat their error by not believing that prophets can't exist today. Let's instead get on our knees and receive our own personal revelation about the ones here amongst us.
