Hi I'm Justus Earley

I am a musician that uses my great blessing to help spread Gods truth, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Justus Earley. I am a son, brother and uncle. Music, art and spending time with family/friends and playing games is what i love to do. Contrary to popular belief not all Christians listen to strictly Church Hymns and stuff like that, i am actually an extreme metal head! Some of my favorite and most inspirational bands include: Impending Doom, Fit For A King, As I Lay Dying, Demon Hunter, Crown The Empire, Avenged Sevenfold, Amaranthe, For All Those Sleeping, Whitechappel, and many more! I am currently on my Mission in the Pocatello, Idaho mission and couldn't be happier. When i get back home i plan to continue working on music as well as go into business with my friends, and start an eternal family! Thoughts of an eternal family and marriage really inspire me to be the best i can at all times so that I will be worthy of having such an amazing blessing.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this Church because i took the time to learn for myself. I don't coast through life feeding off of others testimonies and stories, i make my own. That is what we all must do. When you learn for yourself the truthfulness of this gospel, you learn to better understand Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, the Holy Ghost and just exactly who they truly are. When you do as you are asked and actually find for yourself why this Church and Gospel is true, you will understand everything that i have said to this point.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by simply following Christ's example. One of my favorite ways of doing this is by looking for and participating in Service Projects. "When ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God" Mosiah 2:17. Living right isn't hard, living wrong is. When you have your ideals, practices and faith centered on Christ and our loving Heavenly Father, there's no possible way you can be lead astray. Always remember who you are!

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Justus Earley
The Book of Mormon was not written by Joseph Smith. It was written, collectively, by ancient Prophets in the American Continent starting over 2500 years ago on gold/brass plates. The Book of Mormon is much like the Bible in the sense that it is recorded dealings and situations of the Prophetic writers. The plates they were written on were hid away to later be found and translated into what is now The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

Who founded Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Justus Earley
When people hear about The Church Of JESUS CHRIST Of Latter Day Saints they sometimes think, or maybe were falsely told, that we worship Joseph Smith. This is not true. Joseph Smith was a true Prophet called by Heavenly Father to RESTORE this Church, not start it or found it. For that we do honor him, but not worship him. Jesus Christ is the true founder and starter of this Church, and still to this day leads it through a living prophet, just as Joseph Smith was. Show more Show less

Why do you have 12 Apostles? They were just meant to be around for the time of Jesus Christ, not to be replaced with new apostles.

Justus Earley
The Earth always needs Prophets and Apostles. Without them, we can not receive guidance and revelation for the whole world. Heavenly Father suddenly changing to where He doesn't need a Prophet and 12 Apostles on Earth would be like saying; "America has a President, but he/she doesn't have to have a functional Vice President of the United States, Department of State, Department of the Treasury, Department of Defense, Department of Justice, etc." Just doesn't make sense. Heavenly Father wouldn't change his stance on what we need because as we know "God is the same yesterday, today, and forever" Mormon 9:9. Show more Show less
