Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. I have three older siblings two went on missions but one didn't instead he join the army but is very supportive of me being on a mission. I'm on my mission now serving in the CA, San Jose mission and before I was about to leave I was wanting to know if I really did believe that this was the true church. So I asked God and he gave me my answer and now I am doing everything I can to repay him for the life he has given me. Thats why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I'm on a Mission for the Church.

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

Ryan Carpenter
The Atonement of Jesus Christ is when he suffered for all our sins. I have come to know for myself the power and gift that the Atonement is. The Atonement is more than just Christ suffering for our sins, it was the most important thing that happened and ever will. It so powerful and so loving that only Jesus Chirst the Son of God could have done this. It is a beautiful bless and I thank God everyday for it, without it I would have no hope. It was necessary for Christ to give his life so that we may all live, if you recall Christ was resurrected on the third day so that we too could be resurrected, because we all die and we must all met God again. And how could I go back to Heavenly Father with all the wrong things I had done, I couldn't, but though Jesus Christ I know can, because he can take away my sins. That to me is the best thing I could ever have. In the world today we need the atonement and I would not beable to live without. Show more Show less
