Why I am a Mormon

You could say that i am a mormon for many reasons, or maybe people could say that he is one of those kids who grew up in the church that never really took his own decisions but thats not true. really anyone who wants to know if the church is true and know and you dont even have to have lots of knowledge. maybe you dont even have to have knowledge of all. i dont know much about the scriptures only a few things that i have picked up in my life and barely learning really really what it means until now that i have sat down and studied. before my mission i was one of those kids who ran off the testimony of the parents but i decided that i was ganna go i know that i needed to know for myslef if its true or not because i didnt wasnt going to leave my house and family for 2 years just to go lie to somebody or lots of people. and listen i never had a dream telling me its true. or an angel come to me and says its true no i never had any of that. nor did i have the tradicional. " i heard a voice and they told me the truth of everything" no i had none of that but i do remeber that when i knelt humbly before my father and asked him what is what he wants me to do what is true is the church true or have i been following some myth or theory all my life. i asked him if the church was true and if joseph smith was a prophet and everything that follows is true. i remeber being engulfed with a power that wasnt from me and and it wrapped around me. it wasnt a feeling that scared me it was a feeling of love or maybe of peace its hard to explain but i know that it came from my father in heaven and i knew it was a divine answer that comes from heaven that i know god has told me that its true through the holy spirit which comes directly from god. or better said, "god The Father Has Told Me Personally With His Own Words"

Who was Joseph Smith?

Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. To start he was a young man who was 14 and lived in New York. in those days there were many religions as we see today in our time. how many are there? to many. and the only thing tha younge boy wanted was to know "What religion is the True Religion that indicates the bible?" ... through studying the scriptures and lots of confusion from the different churches, Joseph found himself in a grove of trees asking God which church of all the churches is the true church. God and Jesus answered him, instructing him personally in the flesh that none of the churches was right because no one had the authority to have the Church of Christ and ordinances and miracles. Being called as a prophet of god was given a commandment to translate ancient records now know as The Book Of Mormon: Another Testament Of Jesus Christ,Later, was visited John the Baptist to restore the keys to baptize and then the 3 original Apostles of Christ, Peter James and John (of the four, through the laying on of hands to perform the ordinances as Jesus Christ did) who gave him the keys to give the gift of the Holy Spirit, laying on of hands, and acting in the name of Christ for the salvation of men. Joseph Smith was a prophet chosen and preordained by God to restore the church of Jesus Christ as explained in Acts 3:21. ask God to see if it's true or not. I testify that its true because I prayed and God always answers. Show more Show less
