Hi I'm Victor

I am a representative of Jesus Christ. I am an American Patriot. I love Sports, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a stoic who loves the sports world. I enjoy watching the Denver Broncos and Utah Jazz. I love playing basketball. I love music but I hate the rap crap. I appreciate great vocabulary and sophisticated humor.

Why I am a Mormon

There is nothing greater then the happiness that comes from living the Gospel. I know what it feels like to experience the sorrow and guilt that comes from my own mistakes, but the Savior lives, and the Atonement is real. The Book of Mormon is the Word of God, and it was brought forth by his matchless power through his prophet Joseph Smith. I have the ultimate and great desire to live in the presence of my Heavenly Father once again and be united with my family forever, and I have a hope in Eternal life and Exaltation. God is great and merciful and he is our loving Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I live may faith by doing what the Savior expects of me: living the commandments, trying my best to be a good example, and doing good to others.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Victor
To return and live with our loving Heavenly Father again with our families. To experience this life so that we may learn right from wrong so that we can eventually be coupled with eternal happiness. Show more Show less

What is the First Vision?

Victor
''The doctrine of inspiration is lost. … Miracles, prophecy, … the holy life, exist as ancient history [only].… Men have come to speak of … revelation as somewhat long ago given and done, as if God were dead… It is the office of a true teacher, to show us that God is, not was; that He speaketh, not spake.” “It is my duty to say to you that the need was never greater [for] new revelation than now.''-Ralph Waldo Emerson Joseph Smith lived in an area of New York called Palmyra, where much religious excitement took place. Joseph did not know which church to join. At length he came across a scripture in the Epistle of James 1:5, ''If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.'' Joseph had come to the conclusion that he must do as James directed, that was, ask of God. On a beautiful clear day, early in the spring of 1820, Joseph knelt down and offered up the desires of his heart to God. The event that followed has influenced the lives of millions of people around the world, and changed the course of history forever. He described, '' I saw a pillar of light exactly over my head, above the brightness of the sun, which descended gradually until it fell upon me...When the light rested upon me I saw two Personages, whose brightness and glory defy all description, standing above me in the air. One of them spake unto me, calling me by name and said, pointing to the other—This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him! Show more Show less
