Hi I'm Zac Jones

I'm a Husband, soon to be father, student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play sports to be active, anything from rock climbing to running.

Why I am a Mormon

I know this church is true, so many times throughout my life I have been pushed down and had to pray to my Father in Heaven for help, I learned thats where I can turn. And I know He love me but I also know he loves you as an individual! And it is all possible through our Savior Jesus Christ, that He Lives and Loves each of us.

How I live my faith

I have been called by a prophet of God in this time to serve God and proclaim His Gospel. Through the Book of Mormon I know that we have a prophet on the earth today. That He speaks as Adam, Moses, or Peter did as they were living upon the earth.

Do Mormons practice polygamy?

Zac Jones
The best explanation on polygamy is found on newsroom.lds.org. It answers the same question in this manner: "No. There are more than 14 million members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and not one of them is a polygamist. The practice of polygamy is strictly prohibited in the Church. The general standard of marriage in the Church has always been monogamy, as indicated in the Book of Mormon (see Jacob 2:27). For periods in the Bible polygamy was practiced by the patriarchs Abraham and Jacob, as well as kings David and Solomon. It was again practiced by a minority of Latter-day Saints in the early years of the Church. Polygamy was officially discontinued in 1890 — 122 years ago. Those who practice polygamy today have nothing whatsoever to do with the Church." I know this is true and you can learn more too at mormon.org. Show more Show less
