Hi I'm joe

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

hi i'm a 4th generation grain farmer in eastern NC. turned 45 on 10/28 and was baptized into the LDS Church the same day in 2011.

Why I am a Mormon

i attended the local Baptist Church as a child & teen, and then visited many other denominations never understanding the concepts they put forth? My Mother passed in '08 and i began a sincere search for truth. i researched the LDS Church for 1.5 years before asking Heavenly Father if what i had learned was truthful? i didn't meet with the Elders until i was ready to be Baptized. it came very easy & made sense to me. having studied the history of Bible in this search for truth, helped me accept the truth of the LDS faith which beforehand i was mostly ignorant of even though we had some neighbors who where members growing up? we just never exchanged our religious views and i today believe it happened when Heavenly Father intended for it to.

How I live my faith

Being practically new to the "Church", i am still learning how the Church is organized & how it operates. I continue to search & dig for truth through reading, watching & listening to Hugh Nibley and many other Mormon Scholars talks, Mormon Channel Radio Shows & BYU TV/Radio and attending Sunday meetings.

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

joe
Because many people rely on the words of others rather than make the effort that Heavenly Father commands of them as to knocking & seeking for truth. Falsehoods concerning the Mormon Faith run rampant in today's world, making the darkness of the world leap in joy! It is saddening to see such ignorance flaunted by so many whom eyes, minds & hearts are shut today from truth. But tomorrow is a new day and prayer is powerful! Show more Show less
