Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church and continue to follow because i have had wonderful experiences and made many friends and the gospel of Christ has helped me get though some of the difficult times in my life. With out this faith in my life i do not know were i would be right now.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission in kentucky. I try to help others and I read the scriptures as often as time permits. I try to follow the example of Christ in loving every one I meet as a friend and helping those in need. I give what i can and I listen when others wont. I try to smile often because spiritualy minded is life eternal. I have found out that i love this gospel and that I enjoy shareing that with others and helping them find out for them selves what i know to be true.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

Douglas
the Holy Ghost is like having a friend how knows all the answers and can help you remember thing. He can comfert you in your times of sorrow as he has done with me. The Holy Ghost can tell you of dangers but you have to be listening for that small quiet voice or that strange felling you get, something to the effect of i dont think this is a good idea. Felling like this can be the holy ghost telling you of trouble. Show more Show less

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Douglas
A testimony is a knowledge that you have come to know that jesus is the Christ and that you have a loving father in heaven. I have found my testimony as I share the gospel of Jesus Christ with those i meet. My testimony is that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true, that the book of mormon is the word of god as is the bible, that Joseph Smith saw god the father and his son and that Thomas S. Monson is the lords prophet on the earth today. And if given the chance I would share it with all the world and declare I know that my redemer lives. Show more Show less

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Douglas
Missionaries proselyte because they have a wonderfull message that Jesus Christ has again reached out to his children and called forth prophets and apostels just like in the old day and they also share meny other truthes of the gospel of Christ that were lost such as familys can be together for ever. The main reson missionaries proselyte is because they want you to be happy and retrun to your father in heaven and to show you how the gospel of Jesus Christ can bless your life in ways that you only dreamed about.

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Douglas
we perform proxy baptisms because there were meny people who have died with out having a chance to be baptized on earth and unless a man be born of the water and the spirit he can not enter the kingdom of heaven.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Douglas
we need a savior to help us become clean again so we can reture to live with our father in heaven. We all sin or in other words we all make wrong choices, because of this we become unclean and unworthy to live in gods presence. Through Jesus Christ we are able to be forgiven of our sins and become clean this is only possible if we repent and strive to live like Jesus and keep his commandments. How we repent is we confess we did worng to god and all other invalved. We then ask for forgiveness from god and all others invalved and we make right the damage we have done. then we promise never to do the sin again. Show more Show less

Faith is a belief in things not seen. It is a knowlage that you get as you learn about Christ and his teachings.

You are also willing to act on your belief in that person or thing and except the message that is revealed to you. That is what i believe to be faith Show more Show less
