Hi I'm Alex

I'm a Model Maker, I'm a Gamer, I'm a Writer, I'm a Creator, I'm a Californian, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to write stories and hope to one day be published. I do computer programming and love to design random FPS games in hopes of getting better. I play all sorts of games to help me learn, I learn through example and trial and error, and the only place that has truly been able to happen is in a board game. I served a mission in the Washington Spokane Mission from December '09 to December '11. I read the scriptures to gain more knowledge of the plan our Savior and our Heavenly Father put forth for us.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm LDS because it is the true chuch of Jesus Christ, after studying the scriptures throughly I've learned that with the restored teachings of Christ, it is the only true chuch, because other wise Christ would have been a liar to many prophets and apostles in the scriptures. But because of the Church of Jesus Christ is once again on the church, we know that all the prophecies are being fulfilled from the beginning. But really it came down to a time when I needed to ask God if he was there, and did Christ actually die for us. Plus did they really care about us, the answer was yes, the feeling of the spirit was so strong and can only be expressed thorugh Galations 5:22-23, and the feeling came as though a fire, overwhelming the body with the feeling of truth, that is what changed my life forever. but the scripture came after the prayer 1 Nephi 19:9 that added the change and the testimony of the Book of Mormon and the Prophet Joseph Smith.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following Christ's teachings, I never understood the once saved always saved therory. Otherwise how could David fall from dwelling with God? that was one that never made sense if the therory was right. So I follow that which Christ taught and his apostles and prophets taught us. I strive to Learn more every day about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, 'feasting on the words of Christ' as the scriptures put it. I Served the Lord in the Washington Spokane Mission, teaching all those who want to come unto Christ and will always be a missionary to those who desire the same things. I will always desire to be an example, the scriptures say, 'Be ye an example of the believers' and will do my best to do just that. I love to teach people the Gospel in anyway I can, because there are so many different ways we can spread the Gospel. I enjoy everytime I get to be an example and to teach others. Plus teaching others allows me to dispell any 'LDS' myths or rumors that are out there, and teach people the truth.

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

There is one thing for having the Bible, but it cannot give you authority to speak in the name of Christ. This was one of the most important things about the Restoration, was that is was prophacied and that the Priesthood, the Authority and Power that Christ gave his Apostles, it needed to be Restored. Not founded, not Reformed but Restored, like taking an old Ford Truck and 'Restoring' it to its proper frame. The Priesthood was lost because the Apostles were killed, thus an Apostatsy(Lack of Priesthood and Rejection of Christ) was widespread throughout the world. Rulers and Majistrates ane people after greed (Acts 20:29-30, Timothy 4:3). People taking control of what they can. Remember the story of the man who came to 'buy' the Priesthood in the Bible? That is an Apostate way of getting the Priesthood, when it is given to all those who are worthy (living the Gospel of Jesus Christ). God promised a Restitution, (Acts 3:19-21) by a Prophet of God (Malachi 3:1, Amost 3:7). Paul even knew there would be a falling away, Thessalonians 2:1-3, thus it was made known throughout the Old Testiment that his would happen, and that the Gathering of Israel would come to pass. When Joseph knelt in prayer he wanted to know which church to go to, and by what means he should join. Then God the Father and Jesus Christ came to him, and called him to be a Prophet in Restoring the Teachings of Christ, and the Priesthood to the Earth. What a Magnifigence, in fulfilling the Prophacies of Old. Show more Show less
