Hi I'm Jonathan

I'm a missionary. I'm from Idaho. I'm a Mormon

About Me

Hi! I'm Jonathan. I am a farm boy from Idaho. I am the oldest of six kids. I have always had a great love of music, I play the piano, the drum set, and the trumpet. Growing up I loved to go fishing with my grandfathers and my Dad. I also took after my Dad and became an EMT because I love to help people. I lived in the same spot for all my life and now i am serving a mission in The Minnesota Minneapolis Mission and I love it! I do miss the mountian sunsets though. I love being a missionary so much! I get to see people improve their lives and draw closer to their savior Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because the knowledge it has brought me of the savior and how my family can be together forever has touched my heart. it calms the troubles and worries that used to really bother me. I Know that the Book of Mormon is true by the power of the Holy Ghost and it has helped me answer the qusetions and decisions I have had to deal with in life. I feel the Holy Ghost when I go to church and when I pray. I know that I could have never created the feelings that it puts in my heart. Even now on the mission that I am serving I have been guided and in what to say and what to do to help people. I can not deny that this is the church that Jesus has set up on the earth. He has showed it to me through his love and guidance.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to do what the Lord gives me to do. I have been a missionary for several months now and I strive my best to live the standards that i teach people. I think that the best way to live the faith is to love The Lord, and I feel that the best thing I can do to show the Lord I love him is to love and serve his children. I truely care about the people I teach and desire their happiness and salvation. I want them to find peace in this crazy world. I know how much they need it because I need it too. I belive in being like our savior seven days a week, not just on sundays or just when it is convenient. I am far from perfect but I know when I do my best the Lord makes up the rest.

In whom should we have faith?

Jonathan
We are to have faith in Jesus Christ, the son of God, and in our Heavenly Father who sent him. Through Jesus Christ alone can we be saved in the kingdom of God. True faith leads to action. When we believe that Jesus christ is the son of God it leads us to desire to repent and be baptized. Then Faith drives us to follow the guidance given to us by God and his servants to follow him to the end. Some people have a false idea that we have faith in men because we belive in a modern prophet and apostles. This is easily corrected by all who read and believe in the Bible. The prophets (ancient and modern) are men that are divinely chosen by and instructed of the Lord. They are just as entitled to make mistakes as you or I. However we have faith that the Lord will not let his chosen servants lead us astray. He will guide them because he loves us just as much as he ever did. I know that as I have followed the teachings of the prophets my faith and trust in the Lord's love has been strengthened because he has blessed and protected me for it. You can know if the prophets are true by learning what they teach and praying and asking God about it. Show more Show less

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Jonathan
People sometimes call us a cult because they do not understand us. It is in the nature of men to be afraid of or even act bigoted about things they do not fully understand.Many people do not understand us because they do not know what we believe. We Believe in Jesus Christ! He is the son of God. i know it. I love him and honor him as The Savior. We only worship him and our Father in Heaven. We are Christians in every way I can think to use that word. I know everyone who prays about what we teach will come to know that it is true. Show more Show less
