Hi I'm Bradley

I'm an Athlete. I'm an Animal lover. I'm a Brother. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I played football, basketball, and ran track. I played the Tuba, Trombone, Alto Sax, and Tenor Sax. I am the second born in my family, I have one older sister and two younger brothers. I am big fan of the Denver Broncos. I Love Guinea Pigs, cats, and Dogs. I enjoy the feeling that I get when I set a very positive example to not just my 2 brothers but to other. I am currently serving a mission in the Arizona Phoenix Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and as I grew up I learned from the testimonies of those around me that the Church is true, that Joseph Smith was a prophet, and that the Book of Mormon was translated by the gift and power of God. With Personal Book of Mormon reading and prayer and own study of the church I now have my own testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know for myself that Joseph Smith was a prophet, that the Book of Mormon was translated by the gift and power of God, and the the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church once again restored on the earth in these Latter Days. I am showing my testimony by serving my Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ, by serving a 2 year mission in the Arizona Phoenix Mission.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church each week, learning the words of the gospel of Jesus Christ, reading the scriptures, and serving a mission in the Arizona Phoenix Mission. I live my faith as I continue to learn the words of my savior, Jesus Christ, and go to teach his word to those who are ready to hear it.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Bradley
To fully understand the pain that Christ went through is impossible for anyone to know. For me, personally, Christ just didn't suffer in the Garden of Gethsemane for our sins. Christ also suffered for all of our pains, sorrows, afflictions, he suffered for everything that EVERYONE will EVER EXPERIENCE in their lives. For me, even though I am young, I cannot imagine the pain I have gone through all at once. So for me it is impossible to imagine the pain that Christ suffered. His suffering in the Garden made it possible for Christ to say, "I know what you are going through, because I've been there as well. I will help you get through this trial." Then he went onto the second step of the Atonement, where he suffered on the cross and died on the cross. Then three days later Christ was resurrected. Christ being resurrected made it possible for everyone to be resurrected. Everyone being able to be resurrected is a free gift for everyone. In General The Atonement of Jesus Christ made it possible for all to be able to repent, and be a better person and have the possibility to return and live in the presence of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
