Hi I'm José

I was born in Mexico City, I love Movies, music, comic books and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like everything related to creativity, create new things, imagine new possibilities, I think that's one of the greatest gifts that we have as human beings so I try to learn new things and improve the skills I have. I like to draw, play piano and harmonica, watch movies and read. I believe that family is the most important thing in this life, everything we do, we do it for the people we love. I love my family and I want to have my own , right now I'm a son and and a brother and in the future I will be a Husband and a Father, that's my goal.

Why I am a Mormon

Why not? Even though I was raised in the church, as everyone who wants to know the truth I had to pray and find out for my self if everything my parents taught me was true. For me, the strongest testimony is the book of Mormon, every time I read its pages I feel that is the word of God, I believe in Jesus Christ and I know the bible testifies about Him, with the book of Mormon is similar, every time I read it I feel closer to Him and I've prayed and asked, I know its true.

How I live my faith

I served as a Missionary of the church so every day for two years I helped others to learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ and I've shared my testimony of how the restored gospel is a blessing for families and for everyone who make it part of his life. My experience as missionary helped me love others, feel more our Saviors love and made me want to serve for my entire life, right now I'm not a full- time missionary but I'm still a full-time member of the church so I help others to learn about the gospel and I try to find opportunities to serve them.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

José
We only worship God the father an His son Jesus Christ. Since the beginning of the world The Lord called His servants the prophets to speak in HIs name to the people, they were respected and even admired for the holiness of their calling, we honor every prophet for the sacrifices and the work they did to help us know the will of The Lord, but we don't worship any of them. Joseph smith was a prophet and as the prophets of old he was called to do what The Lord commanded him, he was an instrument to restore the gospel of Jesus Christ on earth that's why we talk about his importance as a prophet of these days.

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

José
To understand why a restoration was needed we need to understand that after the resurrection of The Lord and the death and persecution of his apostles the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ was taken away with his authority to perform ordinances and preach the gospel. There are many scriptures in he bible who prophesy this period of time called apostasy. The bible existed as a book many years after the death of the apostles and passed through many translations,in that period of time many important doctrines and principles became confusing or lost, and no men had the priesthood authority to understand the doctrines and perform the ordinances of the gospel, because of that the ordinances were replaced with other ideas of men and important doctrines were taken away. The restoration brought back the fullness of the gospel, with every doctrine, principle and the authority to perform every ordinance of the gospel. Show more Show less
