Hi I'm Mason

I live in Arizona, I love to hunt and fish. I'm a mormon

About Me

I am currently serving a full time 2 year mission in Milwaukee Wisconsin. I live in the rocky mountains in a small mountain comunity where my friends and i hunt and fish every chance we get. I compete in archery and IPSC or international pistol shooting confederation. I bagged my first archery Bull Elk last year. I am an Eagle Scout, I work at Pizza Factory, I became an uncle three days ago. I also love to moutain bike, but most importantly I love to share the gospel with all of my brothers and sisters!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Later day Saints is the church set up by Christ in these later days. I have read the Book of Mormon and know it to be the word of God. I know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God and established his church once again through him. I know we have a true prophet today Thomas S. Monson, who leads and guides the church and acts as a watchman for the saints to guide them through this tough world today. I know all of this because i have Put these things to the test and every time I get a burning confirmation from the spirit that it is true. If you have not I would invite you to ask yourself, "does God change?" the answer is NO! He works the same way today as he did in the times of the Bible. Whenever he wants to lead a people he calls a prophet just like Noah, Moses, Abraham, if God and his system is perfect, why would he need to change the way he does things?

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to keep my life in harmony with the teaching of Christ and the church he established on the earth. I try to keep my mind clean and clear of thoughts or music that would drive away the spirit of Christ. I perform sevice when possible. Everyday I try just a little harder to be a little better and love a little more, hopefully my radius of affect will grow at least a little.

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

The restoration was needed because the apostles Christ left on the earth to minister were all murdered and with the apostles gone the priesthood was gone and so was the organization of the church. The root word of restoration is restore, so we literally have the same exact church that christ set up in the old world. We require the book of mormon because with the bible there are an inumerable many ways that one can interpret the teachings from the bible alone, hence all the different churches, but with the book of mormon, the teachings are clarified and the book of mormon acts as a second witness to the bible, so that there can only be one church, one faith and one baptism.
