I Love The Lord and im a stick-to-your-guns, True Blue, All-American Mormon and Member of The Lords True Church and Kingdom on the earth, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints!!!! Im Brian Beger, a Brother, a Friend, A Follower of Jesus Christ, A Writer, Asuper Nerd and one who has come far and has far yet to go and i Boldly Proclaim IM A MORMON!!! and No, Im not from Utah. not all members of The Lords Church are from Utah. in Fact, all my family is from nearly everywhere in The World, EXCEPT for Utah...... Just Note, this is nothing against Utah. i just want people to know that we are from litteraly all around the world. if you can find civilized life, you can find us (and even a few not so civilized places. and that goes double for our Missionaries world wide.. HAHAHA!!)

Why I am a Mormon

i was born into The Church to two wonderful parents. they raised me based on rightious principles taught to them by those who were put into thier path by The Lord God Almighty. i STAYED in The Church because i found there was just no better way. i came unto Christ after having several nearly insurmountable challanges. i almost couldnt do anything on my own. but i turned to Him and asked for needed strength to continue, AND IT WORKED! Just like the Prophits of old always said it would. i truely know and believe that He is Risen for us and that all you must do to gain your true beliefe is ask! read Moroni 10:3-5 (from the Book of Mormon, the Best Book i ever read, EVER) the book of Enos (from the Book of Mormon) and Alma 32 (yep, you guessed it, Book of Mormon) and remember!! if the Blind Guy can do it, SO CAN YOU! my favorite thing about all this??? well, you dont have to take my word for it! ask God, Our Father in Heaven, and He WILL reveal it unto you. afterall, that IS what He did with all those who asked in the past, and its still what He does today. you can go straight to the very source of all truth: He Who Created all things, Our Loving, Eternal Heavenly Father! that is why i am now serving as A Latter-day saint Missionary in Colorado Springs area: Because i know this to be true and i want as many people to have these many great and wonderful blessings as is Possible! you can have this too!! and of this i testify in the savior Jesus Christ's Eternally Sacred Name, Amen!

How I live my faith

i try to do things as near as possible to what The Lord would ask. im not perfect, im not unfailing and im not a stiff or even remotely unapproachable. my Favorite Person to talk about is Christ. i owe all i have to Him, and so do you! after all, He could have said 'No thanks, Dad, i just dont wanna do it...' and thats it, Game over Humanity. BUT HE DIDNT! we all have freedom to choose (Or Agency) and He still had it, even when on the cross for you. THE Savior is Everything to me! without His word, or His wise servants, i would have been gone long ago. i bare my Personal Witness: He Lives! He Died for us, and was rissen for all mankind! He Loves you, and wants you to come home to Him. this, i have learned from Much trial and error. this i testify in The Name of The Savior, Jesus Christ! I AM AN ETERNAL FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHIRST!!! ARE YOU?!?!?!?!?????? also, i know these things to be true!! DO YOU?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!!!?????????!?!?!?!???????????

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

Brian (Beegz)
we Believe that this is the Grandest and Greatest Blessing of all! it is how we can be with those we Love and Care for, with God and Christ For all of the Eternities! it is our ultimate goal in this life. it is important to know that we must live our best and fully rely upon Heavenly Father and Jesus CHrist to achieve this Greatest of His Eternal Blessings. when we get resurected, we will no longer be subject to the pains and frailties of the Mortal Body, Heart, Mind and soul. we wont feel pain, sorrow, hurt, loss, anger, regret or any other negative thing, provided we do all we can to fullfill our best. it is not a free gift, however. Christ made the incalcuable sacrifice of His Body, Heart, Mind and Soul. he was seperated from His Father, rejected, belittled, mocked, ridiculed, condemned, beaten, tortured, smitten, denied, cast out and eventually killed. this so that we could have a solid, firm rock upon which to lean and rely. if not for that, WE WOULD HAVE NO HOPE!!! the end. that is why we praise Him so Highly, because He didnt have to do it. but He DID for US!!! and of these things i add my Humble witness in the sacred, Eternal and Perfect Name of Jesus Christ, our Eternal Savior and King, the Redeeming Lord, Amen!

Do Mormons practice polygamy?

Brian (Beegz)
No Way! we did, at one time, Practice this. but once the united states came out with the law stateing this act to be illegal, we stopped, and all who continue to do so are NOT with our church. we do not claim them, nor do they claim us. they who practice this still are in direct violation of the Will of Almighty God.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Brian (Beegz)
we can Pray to Him, tell him of our concerns, ask him questions. just think of what you do when you want a new friend, or when you want to approach a guy or a girl that you really like. Scriptures are key to this, as these show us the accounts of those He has to Whom He has Manifest Himself. seek and ye shall find, Knock, and it SHALL open unto you!! He Already Knows YOU. But, do YOU Know HIM??? Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Brian (Beegz)
The Holy Volume of Scripture know as The Book of Mormon, as stated on the Front Cover thereof is another Testiment of the Lord Jesus Christ. it is of sacred writ and was written by Prophits on the Ancient American Contenant. it does not replace The Holy Bible or add or take away from it. it is a witness that stands boldly at its side, testifying along with everything that is held within The Holy Bible. you should read it!! its the best book ever written!!!!!!!!

Brian (Beegz)
uh, TRY EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!! Nature, Animals, Plants, US as Humans, The Holy Ghost, Scriptures, The Prophets, God Himself. look at our Earth. we have so much here. i simply cannot believe that this was an accident. say, for instance, that you wanted to make a book. would you go to a printing shop, ideas and whatnot in mind and throw a grenade into there, hoping to get it all to somehow smack togather?? OF COURSE NOT! it would be abbsurd at best. you would sit down, have inspiration readily at hand, think it out, have some things to say and a set goal of how to say it. then, you wold go to work! tell ya a Secret: (Whispering) God works in the same way!!! He had this ALL Planned out and wanted us to use it properly. if you have any doubt, think about it, go to God In Prayer and ask if He is there, and i promise you, that as sure as you are alive, He Will tell you that HE IS THERE!!! read Alma chapter 32 from the Book of Mormon. it explains it a little better than i have. ask him any questions. if you want to talk to me about it, you can. just find me on facebook some time and say that you want to know more. or, just look for those sharply dressed young men or young women with nametags and ask them whats up. they will tell you, i promise!! this i so testify in the name of Jesus Christ amen!

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Brian (Beegz)
because they are misinformed. Cult is a merely a word that means 'a group of three or more people that are united under the same cause' so, if you, me and a buddy of ours were togather talking about fruitcake, we could be called the fruitcake cult...... so, no, we are NOT a Cult. we ARE followers of Christ, The Lord who Reigns over both The Heavens and The Earth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

Brian (Beegz)
Faith is a Beliefe in the unseen, which is True. for instance, you may not be able to PHYSICALLY see God or Jesus Christ, But you know they are there, Because the Scriptures, THe Prophets, The Missionaries and many many Countless Believers have all Testified that they are Real. THAT is Faith. i am paritcularily fond of and attentive to things of Faith. you see, I am Legally Blind, and cannot see certain details and what not from certain distances, yet i know who and what things are, so long as i have seen them previously and recognized them, or if someone i trust points them out to me. that is what faith is all about. trusting in something you are unaware of, because someone you Trust and Love who loves YOU (In this example, God The Father and His VERY Loving, atoneing Son, Jesus Christ) has indicated and indicates. you trust them because they guide you well now, and have in times previoulsy. And They always will. to get faith, you must act on it, search for it, want it and USE IT when you get it. like the Biblical Prophet James Said many hundreds of years ago 'Faith without Works is Dead' and to this Prophetic Council, i add my Humble experiance and Testimony: Faith in The Lord Jesus Christ is VItal. it is our Life Blood as Children of God and will lead us back to His Eternal, Celestial Fold if and when acted upon Properly. to this i testify in the sacred Name of Jesus Christ, THE Atoneing, Omnipotent Lord Amen!! Note that if it worked for me, it will in fact, Work for YOU!! Show more Show less

Where did Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints begin?

Brian (Beegz)
Joseph Smith lived in the early 1800s. he was in a Very Religious part of New York. he was confused, because all the Churches taught different ways. they all went a different direction. when he was fourteen, he went around to the pastors and preachers, wanting answers. But he Just started to be confused a lot more than when he started off. he went to Gods Word. he read in James, Chapter one, Verse Five where he was directed to Go ask God. so he went to the woods, to commune with God. he Prayed to Know which of the Churches were true. God and Jesus Christ appeared to Him. they told Him to join None of them, and that they were all wrong and didnt have His Priesthood Authority. Joseph Smith siad in his own words 'I Saw a Pillar of Light, Exactly over my head, above the Brightness of The Sun, which decended Gradually until it fell upon me. when the light rested upon me, i saw two personages, whos Brightness and Glory defy all description, Standing above me in the air. one of them spake to me, Calling me by name and siad, Pointing to the other, This is My Beloved Son, Hear Him!' he was called to be The Prophit and declare Gods word and organize His Church once again on the earth, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. the cool thing about this is that if you dont believe me, you can go Ask God YOurself, Just like Joseph Smith did, and i promise you in the name of The Lord Jesus Christ that He Will Reveal it unto you, Just like He Did with Joseph Smith. It worked for me Show more Show less

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Brian (Beegz)
they are Places of Great Sanctity and Sacredness. this is where we make Sacred Promises to The Lord Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father. all who are worthy may enter. some say it is secret, but NO, it is NOT secret. it is SACRED. we believe it to be where we can be Nearest Gods Presance, and so, Since no unclean thing may dwell with God, we must access The Atonement in our lives and use The Saviors Great Council to Cleanse ourselves so we may enter. there are some Members who cannot enter, so we all must be Clean and Worth to enter in this most sacred of Places. this is also where the most sacred and precious teachings of The Father (not to mention The Sweetest Blessings of Eternal Worth) are Freely Given to the Worthy Children of Men who have Qualified, avvording to The Lords Standards and Comandments Show more Show less

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

Brian (Beegz)
its simple: Live Rightiously, tach those you love of the eternal damage that is dealt by it and the horendous nature of this vial, poisnonous, disgusting, wrong, evil, dastardly and HORENDOUSLY DEVILISH waste from the devil. just dont participate, put up safeguards, keep your technological devices in public areas and make sure you set the example to thos who struggle with this. pray for The Lords advice and influance in your life and that of your loved ones who may be influanced by this and be watcchful and mindful at all times. be a true believer of Jesus Christ. True Believers of Christ act. we dont just sit back. we get rigt up in the front lines and combat evil hand to hand, Face to face in A n eternal, toe to toe battle with the adversary. we also fight along side of our Great and Mighty Heavenly King, God The Father and his well beloved and eternally blessed son, Jesus Christ The Lord Omnipotent. dont fall into the trap, get out of it if you are in it, and STAY OUT OF IT IF YOU ARE NOT IN IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Brian (Beegz)
i Know he is our Lord and Savior. HE LOVES US!!! and we LOVE him! He set up His Fathers Gospel and organized His Church and kingdom when he Dwelt among us. Healed the sick, the blind, the leper, the Lame, the crippled, the broken hearted, the sinner, the saint, the lost, the sad, the confused, the hungry and Raised the dead! (he raised the Spiritually dead and the physically dead alike.) He Suffered ALL negative things which the human family has suffered, will suffer, is suffering, can suffer or does suffer. and i mean EVERYTHING. name it and He went through it for you, no matter what it is! He did so WILLINGLY and LOVINGLY so we could be brought back. He taught us we UST obey Him and His Commands and His Servants (whoever they may be, whenever they may be or where ever they may be) we must follow His rightious, imortal and PERFECT lead, for there in is found true salvation!! he taught how to obtain lasting conversion. and, of course, if you wanna learn more about this, talk to those sharp young Mormon Missionaries who you likely see walking or biking around all the time. they can and will help you, because they are God Sent and Prepared to Help!!

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Brian (Beegz)
we live like everyone else does in some ways, and in other ways, copletely different. let me explain. we breath the same air, have the same challanges and desires/thoughts/wants/wishes/weaknesses etc. but, we also live a very different way than society at large and as a whole. we dont particiate in rough partying lifestyles, such as is comonly demonstrated by mass millions of people. why?? because God says not to. What HE says goes, no matter what, end of story. we do it because we love it, and He wants us to be Happy and this is what he has shown us will bring utmost happyness. we do not participate in Pre-Marital sexuality, homosexuality, Pornogrophy, Drinking, Drugs, Smoking, provacative activities,or otherwise comonly justified acts that go against all that is Holy and Good. we are Honest and true, But Imperfect. we do our best and hope others will too and we invite them to do so, again, Hoping they will choose correctly. we do not believe in unrightiously judging another, and we believe in equal rights and decision making for any and all who are capable to choose for themselves due to being the proper age and mental capacity. we dont control anyone or exercse what the scriptures say is Quote 'unrightious dominion', here meening that any and all, no matter who they are, where they are fropm, interests, mindset, preferances and whatnot, WE DO NOT FORCE THEM INTO ANYTHING rather, we believe that all can choose freely!!! we also exemplify the best things we are capable of.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Brian (Beegz)
absolutely! this IS Gods Plan for us, afterall!!! we can do this by carefully, Prayrfully selecting a choice spirit Son or Daughter of God of the opposit sex to talk with and ask thier support. we carefully seek out what makes them special and unique and then take it to The Lord God ALLMIGHTY and ask Him in sincere prayer if our choice is rightious unto Him the Most High. we then go through the process of necoming worthy to enter into the Temple of The Lord and make sacred Promises or Covenants with God and our Chosen SPouse over the Aulter of This sacred house of God. we are sealed to eachother for time and alll of the eternities with our specially chosen spouse and promise to uplift and uphold them in all things and ways. we then enter into the same covanant with our Children, promising to support and love them and work our best to help tyhem In and WITH Gods ways. we get sealed to them and work with them. we have been promised that if we stay true to these as a family and as individual members of a family, we will all be eternally united and blessed inthe infinat and eternal bliss that is living side by sidde with Almighty God in the Celestial Kingdom of Heaven. this is our choicest and most profoundly deep and rewarding blessing and it is one that I have tyernd for since i was able to comprehend, at least at some level, what these marvelous things entail. we of course must first prove to God And Loved ones our worthyness and committment to this most sacred of Holy Vows...

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

Brian (Beegz)
we have been told by God and have found through study of His words that these thiongs are bad for our health over all. i dont do them because i think they taste NASTY and i have seen the Harm and trouble that those addicted to these substances face. its about Faith and Obediance, Not about God telling us its bad and us blindly following. they are not meat for the use of Mankind. besides, if you think about it, why do you want to waste your money on something that will or could eventually kill you. you wouldnt buy a Knife with the Purpose of usig it to cause harm to yourself, so why would you buy this drink with intentions of making yourself misserable. the joy we can possibly get from those things is FLEETING AT BEST. i dont know about you, but what i seek is eternal, permanant Blessings, not just a quick pick me up that will rot my mouth, kill my lungs, destroy my bowels, give me cancer and make me age ten times faster Physically. GROSS!!!! its also likewise not simply 'what we Mormons CANT do.' its what we SHOULD and SHOULD NOT do. we eat Healthy foods, exercise regularaly, stay fit, be active, out and about, we do regualr physical activity and do Wholesome things. most important, it is about doing what God says, because we know it will be these things that will ensure our lasting joy in the Life and worlds to come! we live longer and we live more happily when we do what God Wants, of That eternal truth, I Testify MOST HARTILY in the Name of The Lord Jesus Christ, Amen!!!!!

What do Mormons believe about the Holy Ghost? Who is the Holy Ghost?

Brian (Beegz)
we believe that He is a Person who has no physical form, so that he can dwell with us. he manifests the truth through emotion and feelings, thoughts and the perception of our Heart AND mind. he tells us of Danger, shows us what we ought and ought not do. he comforts us when sad, lifts when discouraged, blesses when in need, helps when struggle arise, is a friend to the friendless and tells us through wonderful feelings when we do whats right. we get this most marvelous beings acompanyment after we are baptized by emersion by Gods Priesthood authority. we also believe the Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost to be a part of Team God, The God Head. this is the sacred relationship that God The Father, The Son, Jesus Christ and The Holy Ghost find themselves under. they three are eternal companions and have three seperate minds and personalities, and The Father and His Son, Jesus Christ have seperat Bodies of Flesh and Bone, and are perfect and resurected. the Holy Ghost touches us with feelings of Warmth, Peace, Comfort, Admonishment, Advice, Joy, Thanksgiving, Accomplishment, Brother and Sisterhood, joyous feelings of abillity and so forth. it is the single greatest gift for a man or a woman to have The Holy Ghost. if we do not have him with us all the time, he cannot permanantly dwell near us, but CAN ocasionaly touch us, as he will. THIS is the Power of the Holg Ghost. when we have the Gift of the Holy Ghost, he stays, Provided we are worthy. I Testify in The name of Jesus Christ amen!! Show more Show less

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Brian (Beegz)
its a Nick Name.... we have whats called The Book of Mormon. its a sacred book, very similer to the Holy Bible. its about the inhabitents of ancient America and contains, as does the Holy Bible, the entire word of God almighty. Mormon was a Prophet, like Moses or Abraham. He found many writings of the Prophets Of his day, in the time before and shortly after Christ's Earthly Ministry. He compiled them and then they were translated many hundreds of years later by an inspired Prophet, Joseph Smith. people called us 'Mormons' or 'Mormon' because of this. dont believe me??? ASK GOD!!! He will straighten out all the unsurities in any ones life! Guranteed!! Show more Show less

What is the First Vision?

Brian (Beegz)
it was the Experiance of the Boy Joseph Smith before God Called him to be a prophet. he was confused with all the Religious beliefes of the times (in the early 1800's) so he went to The Holy Bible, reading James, chapter one verse Five which says, Quote: 'if any of you lack wisdom, let Him ask of God, who giveth to all men Liberaly and Upbraideth Not and it shall be given Him.' unquote. verse six is also good. (but i'll let you look that one up! Wink) so, here, he was directed to ask God in prayer, and told that He would Be kind and gentle, would give a rightious answer and would do so patiently and without Anger. it also told him that he would find what he sought: The Truths of Almighty God. he went to a quiet place, Knelt down, and offered a vocal Prayer, asking for Heavenly Father to tell him which church was true, which to join, which one was His ONE true Church?? he had a MIRACULOUS EXPERIANCE!!! God The Father and His Son, our savior and redeemer, Jesus Christ appeared to Him!! they told him to join none of these churches. he was called to be a prophet. he spoke Reverantly of his experiance 'I saw a Pilar of Light, Exactly over my head, Above the Brightness of The Sun, Which Decended Gradually untill it fell upon me. when The Light Fell upon me, I saw Two Personages, WHos 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!!

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Brian (Beegz)
we want everyone to have these WONDERFUL Blessings!! so, one person, Man Or Woman, can be Baptized in a sacred Temple of God in Place of Another Man or another Woman. this is something that is known as 'Proxy Work'. Jesus Christ's Atoneing Sacrifice was also by Proxy. since we could not do it for ourselves, He Did it FOR US!!!!! its the SAME EXACT PRINCIPLE. and NO, We dont take a corpse into the Baptismal Font to Baptize them. a living, breathing and worthy person enters the waters for a not living, not breathing worthy person and gets baptized for them, in thier stead. to do this, we must first comply to some very specific gudlines, to prove we are worthy to Our Heavenly King.most importantly?? ITS SACRED, NOT SECRET!! Show more Show less

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Brian (Beegz)
The Atonement of Jesus Christ was the Act in which he suffered for all of our sins, Transgressions, Mistakes, Shortcomings, Pains, Afflictions, Sorrows, Losses, Complaints, Frailties and any and every negative thing that all of Gods children have faced individually and as a whole. without His Sacred and Pure act of Sacrifice, we would all be Doomed and utterly lost, with NO HOPE OF RECOVERY. no matter how good a person anyone is, without Christ's Perfect Sacrifice and Life, Ending in his Death on the Cross, we would all fall short. again, no matter How good you lived without that, it simply would NOT be anywhere near enough. sad to think that He could have said 'no thanks, Im Good!' instead, he said 'yes, I'll do it for Thee and For Them' and it is also important to know that because he suffered every single tiney little thing you ever suffered (and me and my friends and my family and you and your friends and your family atc) ever went through, we can turn to Him for help and guidance, sympathy, deliverence, strength and encouragment. without that, we would not have a tenth of the blessings we may now have. I LOVE THIS PART OF OUR MESSAGE TO THE WORLD!!!!! ITS MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE THING TO TALK ABOUT! AFTERALL, HE COULD HAVE SAID 'NO' BUT HE DIDNT!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND FOR THAT, I'LL LOVE HIM FOR ETERNITY TIMES TEN BILLION TO INFINITY AND BEYOND!! HE SAVED US!! but we MUST do our part and repent, accept His sacrifice and live His Standards in full, or else it wont do us any good. Show more Show less

What is the difference between attending church and the temple?

Brian (Beegz)
ok. so, a Church Building or Chapel is where we go for our weekly meetings, our Youth Group activities, Scouting Program and ther such things. we can all have free access to the Chael, Provided that we are responsible and Accountable and take good care of these sacred Facilities. the Temple is a VERY VERY VERY EXCEEDINGLY SPECIAL and Most importantly SACRED building. it is the Litteral House of God on the Earth. he resides there in Spirit and only those worthy of Entering into His Presance (So to Speak) may enter. it is a place where the most sacred Promises (Or Ordinances) are made Between God And Mankind. to enter, we must first be a worthy, Baptized and Confirmed Member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and be strictly Faithful and Loyal to some very sacred Promises that we make before Allmighty God. then, we have to live up to them in such a way that we can show our Local Church Leaders that we are capable of doing what we claim. He Gives us a Temple Recommend which then and only then allows us to go freely to the Temple. God has set it up this way, and we do only the Most Sacred of things into the Temple, so one must be Prepared for that. just as no unclean thing can enter and dwel in Gods Kingdom in Heaven, none may unrightiously dwell near Him. its the same thing that they did in Christs day, just done a slightly different way. it is most important to note that Temples and what happens inside of them Are SACRED, and NOT SECRET. we have nothing to hide.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Brian (Beegz)
nope. we arent Required to serve. we are VERY STRONGLY ENCOURAGED. but not out right required its not like they say 'ok, timmy! time to serve a mission!!' and then he's like 'But i Dont Wanna....' and then they are like 'well, Sucks for YOu!!B i already signed you up!!!' FREAK NO!! its more like, 'hey son, Wanna go serve The Lord and His People for two years??' and then he's like 'no thanks, im fine not going....' and then they are like 'ok, but you shouldm because its Awesome AND you get to have TONS of SUPER SICK Blesings for going, and wont have as many if you dont go...' and then He's Like 'ok, sounds great! SIgn Me UP!!!!' we have whats called Agency, or the freedom to make WHATEVER choices we want to make, or not make. BUT!!!!!! we CANOT choose the outcome of our incorrect choices. just the initial actions we make or dont make, so we all stand forewarned. i came souly because i wanted to, and i Knew God and Jesus Christ Wanted me to. i also prayed and read scriptures and sought out The Spirit to find out. and, you know what?? i found that i needed to go, and i have been MORE BLESSED THAN ANYOTHER ANYTHING IN MY ENTIRE WHOLE EXISTANCE IN THE MORTAL REALM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THATS why i went. they do really stress it, yes. but in the end, we all have our freedom to act or to not act. bottom line. and i testify to that in the Name of our Sacred Savior, Heavenyl Fathers Perfect Son, Jesus Christ Amen!!!

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Brian (Beegz)
when we sign up to go out and serve The Lord as a Full Time Missionary, we get sent to a specific place, or a Mission 340 some odd missions dot the earth. we get sent to one of those, which cover a certain geographical area. we can be moved to any single place within that pre-set Mission. we pay either $400 a Month or $10,000 one time to a Missionary Fund that the Church has set up. they allot the Money out to whomever needs it most. so, we pay a certain amount into one huge fund, and they disperse it where need be. its all very organized. it is also likewise important to note that we do not gain any Monetary or Posessional Gain from The Church for our service, accept for our Study supplies which we pay for either each month or once at the start of our service. all blessings we get are strictly intangible Mental, Spiritual, Emotional or other wise untouchable blessings not of worldly things etc Show more Show less

He Leads and guids us, just as Moses, Noah, BAraham and the others all di in thier time. this is truly amazing! i came to know this to be true by reading and praying about it and by hearing His words and comparing him to other Prophets like Him. you can too! everyone can know the Truths of The Gospel. you just have to desire to know, Read the word of God foundin all the Scriptures (Book of Mormon included) and then pray and Ask Heavenly Father to know if its true or not. then, you will know and then, you will desire to do this. you too will also find the Blessings that i and many many millions of others have found, but only if you want it enough to seek, ask and Knock. of this i Solemnly and Humbly Testify in The Sacred Name of Jesus CHrist, Savior and King amen!!

Why is self-reliance important to Mormons? Why do Mormons talk about emergency preparedness?

Brian (Beegz)
it is important to be able to do all we can, so that we can be as well off as possible. He can Help us, but only if we let him. we do our best and ask His Aid, His Guidance and His COuncil, and He Fills in the rest that we cannot do ourselves. if we want to help others, we gotta be able to help ourselves, otherwise, how can we expect to help another??? THAT, my fellow child of God, is why we are self reliant. because in being self reliant, we really are in the long run, learning and developing a system of relying upon The Lord Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father and of these things i testify in the sacred name of Jesus Christ Amen!

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

Brian (Beegz)
An Excellent Question Indeed!! this is my Presonal Favorite Doctrine, Out side of Christ and what He Did and Does for us. this is what we all are waiting for!! We Believe that when you die, you g to The Spirit World, a waiting Room, so to speak. its like when you see the Docter. if you did what he said and then came back, he would be pleased. if not, he would be less than happy to hear it.... when you get there, depending upon what manner of Life you lived, you go one of two places, for a short time. the first place is Spirit Paradice. it is a lovely place that is full of hope, joy, happyness and Peace. this is for those who lived good lives, did what The Savior said, How He said to do it, and upon His Terms. we wait there and are happy and those of s who choose to, or are chose to can share The Lords Gospel to others. the second place is called Spirit Prison. this is a place of learning for those who didnt do the above. they get taught the True Gospel of Jesus Christ, are administered to in the Ordinances of The Gospel (Such As Baptism and others) and get the oppertunity to become a part of The Lords Church And Kingdom. then, we all are gathered at the Great and Last Day, Spoken of in The Scriptures, and Judged according to our thoughts, wishes, actions, Desires and Hearts. we are then devided into one of three Kingdoms of Glory. the First and Greastest, The Celestial Kingdom is where God and Jesus Christ dwell. here we have Eternal Life and Bliss. Incomprehencible JOY!!!! Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about family?

Brian (Beegz)
we believe that this is the Choicest Blessing of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ!! the Family is special, and will ALLWAYS be there and was Prepared for us each individually and as a group from the Foundations of EVERYTHING!! when we die, if we did the proper things in this life, were married in one of the Holy Temples of God, The Sacred Edifaces that were sent among us to give us The Lords Most Choice Blessings, we can be sealed to our Loved ones who Qualify by Rightiousness and obediance to all of the Commandments of God, that we will be able to live togather in Eternal, endless and Incomprehensible UTTER BLISS with them FOREVER IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD!!! now, i have been given this oppertunity, with my parents and six syblings. i have not yet married in The Temple of The Lord. but, when i do in a short time to come, this will open the way for me to have these Blessings. the best par?? YOU can have these things TOO! 'but, HOW??' you might ask. SIMPLE!! meet with our Missionaries, Become Baptized by the true authority of God Allmighty into His ONE True Church, THE Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-Day Saints and work towards worthyness to get into the Temple and there make further sacred Promises with Lord and Your Chosen and also likewise Worthy Spouse and go to your Knees at The AUlter Before Christ THe Lord Omnipotent and Heavenly Father, Our God. simple, Yes. easy?? NO, of COUrse Not. but DEFINATELY DOABLE!! i testify of this in the sacred name of Jesus Christ amen!!!!!!!! Show more Show less

How does the Church finance its operations?

Brian (Beegz)
Great Question! we finance everything in The Lord's Church and Kingdom with special sacred Donations (Volentary, Of Course) called Fast and Tithing offerings. Fast offerings are from what we call Fasting. we go without food or water up to 24 hours. we donate what didnt go to food for those meals to the Church, which then goes to a special fund where they use it for emergency needs, feeding the Homeless and Hungry, and otherwise supporting others. donations are private and kept confidential and in all cases, the Fast is done with much prayer, thought and concern, thinking and praying for those who we have a special interrest in. the Tihing is similer yet different. this is the way we fund our Church. His Church. when we get funds we give 10% of it to The Church. we give it to a local church leader, sealed in an envelope with a special slip that tells what the donation is for. it is kept confidential in both instances, and this is kept strictly between the Giver and The Lord. its on terms of Faith. we do so and get no return, no revenue from The Church and no one representing or working for The Church and its many various Functions gets paid by these Sacred Funds. top church leadership then decides what to do with these funds, such as building, furnishing, remodleing or repairing existing fecillities, building new ones and so on. we are TRAMENDOUSLY BLESSED when we give generously, but never in Physicle gain. of this, i so testify in the sacred name of Jesus Christ Amen.

Are there restrictions based on race or color concerning who can join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have the priesthood?

Brian (Beegz)
absolutely NOT!!! This is for EVERYONE who is a child of GOD. that means everyone who is living, has lived or will live on this earth and in this life. we do not discrimate against anyone. we encourage those who are worthy of these blessings to step forth, and those who are struggleing to be worthy to get worthy and step forth. our greatest desire is that EVERYONE, Man, Woman, Child, Bond, Free, Black, White, SIngle, Married or whatever and whoever else they are to come and be blessed by the Good Care of The Holy and Eternal Masters of The VIneyard: God The Father and His Son Jesus Christ.any one who does not share this mindset is NOT in proper Mindset and is NOT in Proper Standing with God, Jeseus Christ, The Church and our Leaders and with Me. so, Welcome TO YOU, Thou Child of God!! wont you join in The Throng of The Lord's Gospel??? these Blessings, i Must state once again, Are For those Which God Deems Worthy. admitedly, Unfortunately we once had a time where we did not fully understand this. but, God Revealed to us His WIll and Ways, and we Immediatly Changed our focus, Repented, Mended our ways and took upon us Gods Allmighty will. please forgive us! this is a perfect system, THE perfect System with IMPERFECT people leading it. we do our best, and to The Savior, We Leave The Rest. of this i testify in the Name of Jesus Christ, Holy, Eternal And True Amen Show more Show less

Why is authority to perform a baptism important?

Brian (Beegz)
analogy time once again!! so, hypatheticly speaking, of course, Lets say you are cruising down The Highway at a roaring 100MPH. in a 60MPH zone. the local Frosty Freezy icecream truck pulls you over, annoying Music Blaring and all, and He says 'HEY!! you were speeding!!! Heres a ticket for $3000. Go to court and Pay It!' and then he speeds off. what would YOU do? A): pay it B): Punch Him n the face and say no C): ask for a Hot Fudge Sundae and speed off when he gives it to you. you would Probably tell him to get lost and order a hot fudge suundae. but why is that?? because he cannot make you do that. he has no right. he's not a police Officer..... now, same story, only This Time a STATE TROOPER pulls you over and gives you a $3000 ticket and tells you to go pay it. you wold likely go pay it, because you dont want to go to jail etc. WHY? because he has a Badge and the right to do so, as an officer of Law appointed by the State. same thing with any other thing. why in the world would you believe something if God told you Not to?? you wouldnt, because He Knows whats up and Whats not. therefore, a Church MUST have Proper Authority, otherwise it isnt any good. so, i thus testify in the Name of Jesus Christ that this IS The Lord God Omnipotents One True Church, with Proper Priesthood Authority to lead and Guid the Children of Men unto rightiousness. and, as always, Dont Believe ME! ask GOD believe GOD and do what He says out of love!! i Testify In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen Show more Show less

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Brian (Beegz)
well, Yeah, we always have The Holy Bible. but The Bible doesnt equal The AUthority. heres what happened: Christ set up His Church, with Apostles, The Priesthood Authority to act in Gods Name for His Children (us) and all the needed Men of Leadership and Ministry to Lead and Guid us. for a time, they listend and were Richly lessed. but eventually, they didnt want to listen. during this time, Christ Did SOOO MANY MIRACLES. AMAZING things no other could do if they werent called of God to do it. He suffered in The Garden of Gathsemony for all of us. this is one of my personal favorite Teachings. i suffer a number of challanges that would dibillitate me if i didnt know these things. i simply would NOT be able to begin to cope if not for His Marvelous Love and Sacrifices for us ALL. He Loves us. likewise, Rightious or no, He suffered it ALL for US. sadly, He was Killed. This Deeply wounded Heavenly Father. The people werent ready. The Prophecied, Promissed Messiah, The One and Only Jesus Christ, God's Only Begotten, OUR SAVIOR was Brutally, Merclessly Killed. He was Risen three days later, But God at that point said that we werent ready. He said he wouldnt always 'Strive with Men' and toldof a 'famine of Hearing The Words of God' and so forth. 2000 years after, He Called a Prophet once more, giving Back His Priesthood Authority. of this i Boldly Proclaim and Testify in The Sacred Name of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord Amen!!!! Prayer and scripture study reveals this to ALL!!!! Show more Show less

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

Brian (Beegz)
Its how The Lord joins them with His Church! Baptism by Proper Priesthood authority is esential, as God Has Cpmanded. Its a committment to Follow Christ our Lord and Savior. we do this so we all can grow closer to The Savior. When i imagine Baptism, I picture someone walking up to a Great & Magnificent Mantion, complete with a Huge rot iron fence. This Manner sits atop this green hill with a marvelous garden & winding path way, full of obsticals. at the top is The Master of The Manner. all your loved ones are either on the path way or in The Manner. there is a man, a guard at the bottom of the path way. He stands, letting no one pass until they can prove to be ready. when you approach, He asks if you are ready. if you say you are ready, He opens the gate and you enter in. if not, no entrance is permitted. along The Path to The Manner are wild Beasts and traps a plenty to divert your attention, afflict, harm and possibly Kill you, placed there by The Enemy to The Master. He hates you and all who are friends to The Master, and always will. if you Heed the Servants of The Master, who He sends out to Help you along The Path, all will be well, & make it safe and sound to The Feast of THe Master at the Days End, there, safe and sound with all of your well beloved Friends and Family. we know the Begining, Hope for the end and ask Him to reveal the Journey, but we otherwise Just Travel The Path. in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!! ALWAYS Go To GOD for answers! see what HE Thinks!! Show more Show less

In whom should we have faith?

Brian (Beegz)
IN JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD AND SAVIOR AND WHOMEVER HE CALLS AS HIS SERVANTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Savior is our Kings. His Father, God, is our Creator! we ought to have equal Faith in Both of them, because without God the Savior wouldnt be here and without The Savior, Nither would we. i Testify in Christ! He Lives, He Loves with Perfection! He was given as a sacrifice for all our Sins!! He showed us The Way to get back to God and Forged the Path so we could get back. He opened the Gate and Showed how to Navigate through it!! it is only Through Him that we can receive our Greatest and Smallest Hopes and Desires! He Gave us Freedom to choose our actions and warned us of the Concequences of them so we would have and educated choice in them. it is IN CHRIST JESUS that We shall all live again and i so testify in His Sacred name, Even Jesus Christ, Amen!! if you dont believe me, Go ask Him your self and find out for you. i cannot find out for ou any more than you can sprout wings and fly up to Heaven and ask Him Yourself. so, GO To, ask ON your Knees in humble supplication of Prayer and wait to have your Mind Blown by Allmighty God and His Allmghty son, Jesus Christ OUR Lord and Savior!!! THE ONLY SAVIOR!!!!! Booyah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and once again, I say this all IN His Name, Jesus Christ, Amen!!!!!!! Show more Show less

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Brian (Beegz)
In Short, ALL BLESSINGS THE FATHER HATH!!!! THE Scriptures are How God talks to us. We Talk to Him through Prayer. He answers Through Holy Words Written down in The Scriptures. i cannot count how many times i have gone to Holy Writ wit Prayers and Questions and desirous Thoughts on hand, and Got EXACTLY what i was needing, Wanting, Requesting and seeking IN FULLNESS just from having a deep mindset when pondering upon The Written Word of God. think how lost we would Be if Moses and Others had said, 'Gee, i Just Dont wanna take the time to write this. i'll just tell my Children and Grandchildren and tell them to tell thier Children and Grandchildren what God Told Me. i think Isreal can handle it without it being written.' almost the entire World History would be lost if this had happened. no one can deny that. you at least MUST agree that much Historical Value was Taken Holy Writings of Men and Women Called of God. in my Darkest Trials, i Turned to The Scriptures, seeing Great Trial and Fear Melt like Ice in The Scriptures (Especially The New Testiment and The Book of Mormon) Thanks To God,that All will be revield In Due Time, for Those with faith, desire and Drive that it will be Shown! you wouldnt Know God or Christ or Even that They Excisted or VIsited The Earth without THese Things that have been Written for us. and i so Testify, and invite you to find for yourself these things, IN The Name of JEsus Christ, Holy and True, Amen!!

What is done with the tithing that Mormons pay?

Brian (Beegz)
these sacred Funds purchase all necesary resources to help support The Lord"s Church and His Work within it! no Man Woman or Child that serves in The Lord's Church and Ministry or missionary Program gets a single, solitary cent of these most sacred funds. rather, they are rewarded with Spiritual, Emotional and Mental reliefe. these sacred, Freely donated funds go to Building And maintaining our Chapels, Temples, Other Facilities and Programs found within The Lords Church. no person is given this money as income. the money goes to pay bills, repare damages, replace and replenish church educational materials and supplies and to otherwise help expand our humanitarien efforts to thse less fortunate than ourselves. it also helps to fund educational programs, the necesary expenses (Rent, Utilities etc) of our Full Time Missionaries and Thier Work, Whatever/Wherever it is. one must note that these fuinds are given for The Lord and whatever is Given is done in the Mindset that they are giving it to The Lrod, Jesus Christ and to God. I love this Principle because it is basically asking every individual to give what they are able to give so that the Whole can benafit. its all voluntary, Privat and Confedentiallity is maintianed with exactness. i have personally seen the Benafits of this, as i can say that whenever i voluntarily give of what i have received to The Lord, He ALWAYS responds by giving back Exactly what I need! and as always, I Testify in The Name of Jesus Christ, Amen!

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Brian (Beegz)
the Current Prophet of God is President Thomas Spencer Monson. He is a man of Great Love, Joy, Strength, Humility, Good Deads and Most Importantly, He is A Man of God, Chosen by Him to lead His Work Toady. i know He is The Prophet of God because when He speaks, The Scriotures fill my Mind, Heart and Soul. When he Speaks, The Spirit of God Floods my life and i am given exceedingly great joy. When He Speaks, the Questions of my Being are answered. SIMPLY Because He was Chosen of God by Devine Appointment, Set appart, Anointed, Prepared and Called by The Master of Heaven and Earth, God, The Eternal Father. I implore you to go ask God. that is the only way: God's Way! by thier fruits, Ye Shall Know them. if you want to see Presiden Monsons 'Fruits' go to lds.org and look up some of His talks and presentations. you can also find out who God's Current Apostles are (and Yes, There are Twelve, Just like in times of old) Pray about Them, Find, Mark and Pray about Holy Verses of Ancient Writ to compare Them to and then (MOST IMPORTANTLY) GO ASK GOD FOR YOURSELF!!!!!! the same things apply to Them, as did it apply to His Ancient Servants. they all togather lead the work, proclaim Doctrine, Bless The Saints, Give Direction and otherwise live and lead as close to Christs axample as Possible, now, Please go ask for your self, and i Testify that God Will Reveal this to you, as surely as God Is, YOU will KNow likewise! in The Sacred Name of Jesus Christ, Amen!!!

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

Brian (Beegz)
The Holy Ghost, or The Spirit is able to talk to us in many ways. He can tell us what to do, where to go, how to act, what to expect, what emotions to look for and what to be weary of. put simply, He can lead and guide us to our most deeply desired dreams. His is the Roll of Peace maker. He can comfort us when weak and wary, can speak peace, calm our emotions, lift the downtrodden and otherwise deliver all the messages of truth, light, love, hope and peace that our wise and loving Father in Heaven would like us to have. God DOES answer prayer, and it is usually through the quiet, almost imperceptible touch of The Spirit's gentle caresses. put simple, God Sends comfort, cheer, joy, happiness, reassurance and Hope, and He Does so through The Spirit. He Teaches, talks, tests, warns, comforts, lifts and otherwise aids us through all things. to be worthy of His Presence, we must be calm, collected, ready, worthy, willing and open to hear. He cannot and will go to unholy places, or places we should not go, so it is important to stay away from such damaging instances. i Love having the constant companionship of The Spirit, Because he is a friend who will never leave, if you want Him to stay. of this, i Testify in the Name of Jesus Christ, our Savior, Amen.

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

Brian (Beegz)
very reverent. we sit down in our chapels, which are simple in design and functional. we start with a prayer and Hymn when all the congregation is seated. we hear announcements for recent and upcoming events, new people in our congregation (or ward, as we call it) and then we have another hymn before we do The Sacrament (the bread and water) we say a special prayer over it, then pass it out to everyone, first the Bread, then the Water. then, we hear from a local member who was asked to speak in advance. usually about Scriptures, or Gospel Principles, depending upon what our Bishop feels necessary. we sing another hymn, then listen to two more speakers. usually after that, we have a few closing remarks,, then another hymn and close with a prayer. it is very very Spiritually packed, c=very exciting and very much restoring of ones Spiritual, mental and emotional well-being. it is EXCELLENT!!! everybody there will feel The Spirits touch if they are listening. i testify that this is The Lords Way and that this is what allows each of us to get through another weeks worth of tests and trials and i do so in the sacred, holy and omnipotent name of our Lord, Savior and King, Jesus Christ, Amen.
