Hi I'm Rob

I'm part of the world-wide human family, anxious to see us succeed. Success will be when every weapon fails and peace prevails.

About Me

For thirty years I've held my heart on the belief that peace is possible . The major difficulty being freedom. I've also held freedom to be the most vital component of human happiness. Resolution of the paradox has been elusive. When I discovered chapter 7 in the book of Moses I knew resolution was attainable. Worship of the Prince of Peace and that story conferred a sense of rationality to the objective. Later as I studied the words of Isaiah, the engineering parameters began to take shape in my mind. Iron teeth on the tools and money in the bank define the roots of our relationships with each other and with the earth. The result is a trail of blood and destruction behind every human on earth. Directly or indirectly all our victories imply someone else's defeat. Yet “saith the Lord - They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain.” I regard it as my sacred Priesthood duty to seek revelation that will bring about the means whereby every woman and child on earth can be got out of harms way. Regardless the threat be from machetes, missles, hurricanes or corporate ambitions; every woman and child will have sure shelter. No weapon formed will prosper, and from thence every man can begin to rationally assess his ambitions and associations. We, who hold the Holy Priesthood owe it to the world to apply every shred of intellect and prayer to the task of fulfilling the millenial prophecies.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the church in 1971 after having received a sure witness of the reality, presence and divinity of the Lord Jesus Christ. I had studied Buddhism and Islam, rejecting each for my own reasons. I searched among the Christian churches for one that fit the character of Christ as I knew Him. Eventually I was contacted by missionaries and convinced this is the true church of Jesus Christ. It was the only one I studied that embraced a comprehensive plan for the universal salvation of humankind. After my baptism I told the missionaries that if I ever found anything better I would go with it. I have found much good in other churches and disciplines and philosophies but nothing yet that I would consider better than the Gospel of Jesus Christ as taught in the Sunday Schools and conferences of the LDSChurch. In addition I have found in the scriptures much support for my hopes that this world of ours may yet see peace. This is after all our world. Jesus has accomplished for us that which we could not do for ourselves but everything else belongs to us. Success or failure is in our hands. I have also received occasional but significant insights via the gift of the Holy Ghost confirming my belief that revelation is attainable but that my focus must be on the welfare of the whole human family; I am not blessed in selfish pursuits, material prosperity, natural talents or popularity. Yet I am determined to make good on the trust God has placed in me.
