Hi I'm Brian Jan Wilson II

Raised in Dayton Ohio, vocalist, actor, love to study Hebrew, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a full time 2 year mission for my Savior and Redeemer. I am currently serving in the Califronia, Long Beach Mission and loving it. I have studied at a Jewish Synogogue to learn Hebrew. I admire the Jewish faith and culture and I expect to be moving to Israel after I serve my two years as a missionary. I will be moving to Israel to study at Hebrew University to major in Hebrew and Cognate Studies. My grandfather is my real influence when it came to my decision on what I shoud go to collage for. He did the same thing and I am not following in his foot steps because it's what he wants me to do what what I want to do and what I feel the Lord would have me do. I am a vocalist and a guitar player. I don't plan on working with bands after I get off my mission plan on taking my acoustic and writing my own songs once again. Music means the world to me and it's one of the few ways I can express myself to the fullest. I am also a poet and frequently write poetry to get my mind off things. Favorite: Food- Shwarma, Dinosaur- Velociraptor, Cup- round, Stick- Brown, Dog- I don't, Color: Turqoise, Cat- All of them, TV Show- The District, Band- Mormon Tabernacle Choir (Or Asking Alexandria...) Music- Metal, and Classical (I'm serious about that one), Bible Story- Books of Moses. All five of them..., Book of Mormon Story- People of Ammon, Scripture- Alma 57: 47-48. I absolutely love to talk to new people and I talk with EVERBODY. love you all :) 3

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon becuase I know it to be true. I know that the Lord has more for us than just a few records. Just as we have more than one journal Jesus' children have more than one or two records. I have seen so many blessings and continue to see them in my life. I wouldn't want to choose any other church, because after falling out of the gospel and coming back I feel like this is the only true church. Yes, I was born into the church, but that doesn't mean I didn't have to become converted myself.

How I live my faith

I love my faith by keeping the commandments and following in Christ's footsteps. I try my hardest to say and do things that Christ himself would say and do. I constantly keep myself in check to be able to 'stand blameless before God at the last day'. "Therefore I would that ye should be perfect even as I, or your Father who is in heaven is perfect." I try my hardest every day to live up to that.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Brian Jan Wilson II
The Book of Mormon is another testiment of Christ. It does not replace the Bible nor is it more important. We believe that the Bible is indeed the word of God. The Bible is the record of the Jews, taken place in the Middle Eastern area, and the Book of Mormon is the record of Joseph, taken place in the Americas. Show more Show less
