Hi I'm Glenn Eugene Smith Jr.

I'm a Mormon.I grew up in Chicago, now I live in Tampa Florida.

About Me

I'm Single and out of College...I like Science Fiction Books & Movies...I also like Classic Westerns and War Movies...I like to play board games and love the game of Chess...I love Nature and like to go for walks at the Beach...I like to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with my friends...

Why I am a Mormon

According to the Scriptures we are suppose to be ONE SHEEP under ONE SHEPHERD (JESUS CHRIST)...When I was 12 years old I noticed that there were too many different Denominations, and (AUTHORITY) was messed up and divided...Being from a Roman Catholic background I told the Priest that there has to be more Scriptures on Jesus Christ than the Old & New Testaments...I could not get the Spiritual answers; especially from heavy important questions...Being a seeker of truth, I started looking for a Church that had the Authority and could answer the Big Spiritual Questions...Looking for truth for 17 years at various churches I knew that living in the 20th Century;Authority had been lost by the Catholics & Protestants...One day a friend of mine told me about a group of people who call themselves Mormons...They had Missionaries who would take time out to talk and share Scripture with me...They are known as " THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS "...I meet with the Missionaries, and we talked for 5 hours...In that time peroid all my Spiritual Questions were answered and the Mormon Missionaries told me about " THE BOOK OF MORMON " Another Testimony of Jesus Christ and a fourth Book " THE DOCTRINE & COVENANTS "...All Four of these Gospels Testify of the Divinity and Ministry of the true Son of God " JESUS CHRIST "...The Best part of all; a Prophet named Joseph Smith had Restored the Lost Priesthood taken from the Earth after the Apostles were killed and wickedness had increased during the Dark Ages of Europe...The Priesthood has been restored never to be taken ever again from the Earth; as we are in the Latter-days and the Earth is being prepared for the Lord's Second coming...My Quest started at age 12, and it ended at age 29...I joined the Church in May of 1981 and I have never been sorry a day in my life...My Testimony: Jesus is the Christ, Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God, The Priesthood is Restored, and the Chuch is True...In Jesus Name I pray - A-men...

How I live my faith

I am an Elder now and I attend Regularly at the Ward...I take the Sacrament and have Volunteered to visit Families in the ward and fellowship with them...I partisipate in Game Night and play Basketball with the Missionaries at my Ward...I greet all people who come to our Ward on Sunday letting them know that they are a true Son or Daughter of our Heavenly Father...I also read the Scriptures and Pray on a daily Basis...Telling everyone I meet; that Jesus is the Christ...

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Glenn Eugene Smith Jr.
As Mormons; we uphold to four Gospel Books...The Old Testament, The New Testament, The Book of Mormon, and The Doctrine & Covenants...All four of these Gospels endorse the Divinity and Mission of Jesus the Christ...That he was the Son of the Eternal Father...Prophets and Apostles wrote the Scriptures as they were moved by the Holy Ghost...( 2 PETER 1: 20-21)...We also have the Pearl of Great Price, The Joseph Smith History, The Joseph Smith Translation and History of the Church...All of these Scriptures tell us of the One True God and His Son, Jesus Christ.......

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Glenn Eugene Smith Jr.
There's really no Requirement to serve a Mission...All Missions are voluntary...Just to Serve a Mission is an Honor and a privilege to latter-Day Saints...Jesus himself taught the Apostles: " GO YE THEREFORE, AND TEACH ALL THE NATIONS " ( MATTHEW 28:19)...All Missionaries are Representatives of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.......
