Hi I'm Brent

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

About Me

My hobbies are Drums, Martial Arts, Comedy, Xbox 360, Comic Books. I work at Boeing as a BDS CADCAM IT Support person.

Why I am a Mormon

Originally, I was born into the Church. But, in my opinion, I didn't become a real member of the church until I did the one thing most people won't do; I took it to God and asked. However, I prepared myself first; I humbled myself before God, read scriptures, prayed for the Holy Spirit to be with me during my studying. Then, with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith that The Savior will answer me, He did. There was a feeling of complete assurance, that comes from nothing else, swept over me, with a feeling that what I have been wanting to know is true. People who are against the church will not go through the journey of truth that I did. I testify that if you are really wanting to know, please do as it says in Moroni 10: 4-5.

How I live my faith

I've had many callings in my local congregation, from a Primary Teacher with little kids, to a Clerk in the Bishopric. Currently, I am the Bulletin Coordinator for our Ward (Come ask me about it. It's easier to tell you in person). I am **REALLY** enjoying this calling.

Are Mormons Christians?

Brent
YES, YES, YES, a thousand times YES!!!! The name of the church alone says it all: The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-Day Saints. I cannot believe how many people think we are not Christians. We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in The Holy Ghost. Simple, straightforward and to the point -- YES WE ARE CHRISTIANS!! Anyone who says otherwise have either been deceived by others who say we are not, or are in fact saying it deliberately to mislead. Show more Show less

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Brent
Ever since the time of Adam, we have had Prophets speaking for God. We have also had times where Prophets were NOT on the earth (called "apostasy", due to the wickedness of man. The cycle has gone on up until Jesus Christ. When Christ's crucifixion happened, God withdrew his word and power from the earth entirely. At this time, it was called the Great Apostasy; also called "The Dark Ages". It is because of this that so many religions were formed -- without God's word, it was left up to Man's interpretation alone. It wasn't until 1820, when a young boy named Joseph Smith, confuse with so many religions and interpretations, humbled himself before God and "went to the source" (as I would say). The rest is history. If you REALLY want to know what we believe, DON'T go to those who would say bad things about the faith, but to those who know about it. Then, when it is time, you humble yourself before god, with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith that your prayers will be answered, the truth will be manifested to you through the power of the Holy Ghost.
