Soy adoptado desde nacer y yo amo mi familia com todo mi corazon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i have seen the blessings that come from following Jesus Christ. In the Bible we read that there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism. But the big question is how can we know which of all the churches in the world is the one Church of God. In the book of James in the bible we read that "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God." In the end of the Book of Mormon we also read that, "And when you shall receive these things i would exhort you to ask God the Eternal Father in the name of Christ if these things are not true." I have done this in my life and have gained a testimony that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the Lord's church and the only church that has the authority to act in his name on the earth. Every time that someone tells me that my religion is false or yells at me i just rely on the witness that i have receive of God to continue to follow his Son Jesus Christ in my life. Soy Mormon porque yo he visto las bendiciones que recibimos cuando seguimos Jesucristo. En La Biblia leemos que hay "un Senor, una fe, y un bautismo." Pero la pregunta es cual de todas las diferentes iglesias es la unica y verdadera Iglesia de Dios. En La Biblia en el Libro de Santiago leemos que "Si alguno de vosotros tiene falta de sabiduria, pidala a dios quien da a todos abundantamente y sin reproche." Tambien un profeta en el Libro de Mormon, "Y cuando recibáis estas cosas, quisiera exhortaros a que apreguntéis a Dios el Eterno Padre, en el nombre de Cristo, si no son verdaderas estas cosas; y si pedís con un corazón csincero, con dverdadera intención, teniendo efe en Cristo, él os fmanifestará la gverdad de ellas por el poder del Espíritu Santo; y por el poder del Espíritu Santo podréis aconocer la bverdad de todas las cosas." Este es lo que hice y recibi mi respuesta que La Iglesia de Jesucristo de los Santos de los Ultimos Dias es la unica iglesia que tiene la autoridad para actuar en el nombre de Dios aqui en la tierra.

How I live my faith

I do my best to live my faith by being an example to those around me by following the example of Jesus Christ as demonstrated in the Bible and the Book of Mormon. Also i have had the opportunity to serve the Lord as a full time missionary in the New England area. As i have served the people around me i have seen my love for others grow. This has helped me to try harder to understand people and to try to help them increase their faith in the Lord and to help them grow closer by understanding the Gospel of Christ. I always try to study the scriptures so that i can have strength to resist everyday temptations Yo vivo mi fe por ser un ejemplo a las personas que me rodean. Yo trato de seguir el ejemplo de Jesucristo. Trato de aprender sobre los madamientos en La Biblia y el Libro de Mormon y despues trato de seguirlos. Tambien he tenido la oportunidad de servir una mision por el Senor en New England. Este es donde aprendi a hablar espanol. Durante el tiempo de mi servicio he visto el amor que tengo por otros crecer. Me ayudo tratar para entender otras personas y tratar de ayudarles acercarse mas a Cristo. Siempre estudio las escrituras para darme fuerza de resistir tentaciones.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Drew
No not all Mormons have to serve a mission. We know that the Lord has asked each member to serve but it is not mandatory. A mission is difficult but as we serve we show the Lord that we are willing to follow him and to serve him. Show more Show less

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

Drew
We believe that following the Lord should not increase expenses. everthing that we do is service so that we can help the Lord build his kingdom on the earth Show more Show less
