Hi I'm Nathan Warkentin

I live in Utah. I went to CTEC and Riverton High. I am a Latter Day Saint (Mormon). I'm serving a mission in Edmonton Canada.

About Me

I went to school to become a Network Admin/ Computer Technician. I like being able to figure things out about technology. I like to listen to music, some of my favorite bands are Hey Monday, Casscada, Manian, and Krewella. In my free time i like to watch shows like Psych and Mythbusters. I like spending time with my family. I like using Google products. I started my mission for the LDS church in July of 2014. I am serving in the Edmonton, Alberta, Canada mission. I have made my own websites. I build all of my own computers. I enjoy the church and spreading the message of the Gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was little my parents would make me go to church. When I got older i came to realize that if I didn't gain a testimony of my own then I might become inactive when I was older. So I decided to pray about it and decided to read the Scriptures more and that has been what has helped me gain a Testimony of my own. So even though I was born into the Church I had to be converted to the Gospel. I also believe Jesus Christ is the only one who can save us, so I try to follow all of his teachings. I know we need to endure to the end in order to be saved at the last day.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by performing my duties as having the Priesthood. I help bless the sacrament on Sundays. I participate in service projects. I attend church and go to the activities. I strive to read my scriptures often. I will also watch movies produced by the church to increase my knowledge about the church. I have chosen to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I had attended Seminary for 4 years. I spread the word about the Gospel far and wide.

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

Nathan Warkentin
First of all you shouldn't even start and at the first sight you should turn away asap. If you have already gotten into it you should start with a few steps. 1. You should try to have someone in the room when you get on the computer. 2. You should try and tell someone what sites you are going to and then tell them what sites you did go to at the end of your computer use. If you have overcome the addiction you should try and avoid ever looking at it ever again and not think about it for no more then a couple seconds! Serving a Mission is the best and sometimes hardest way to overcome such an addiction, you don't have time or to privacy to continue such a habit. Even if you are older you can still go on a Mission.

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Nathan Warkentin
I don't believe we are a cult because when the Church of Jesus Christ was removed from the earth it still remained in Heaven. When Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ had restored the Church back onto the Earth through Joseph Smith we were able to join the Church again. In short the Church has always existed in Heaven, it just hasn't always been on Earth, so we are less of a cult then other religions. Show more Show less
