Hi I'm Mosiah

Im a Texan. I am passionate for sports. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a college student at BYU Idaho. I was raised in Texas and am a proud Texan! I'm huge into athletics. I just cant sit still! My hobbies are sports ( soccer, football, ect? and anything to do with the outdoors! I am a son, brother.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason I am a Mormon, is because of the answer i received when i prayed and asked God about the Book of Mormon. I didn't see a vision or have some spectacular crazy thing happen to me. It was a calm overwhelming feeling that pierced my heart. Its hard to describe but i know that it was the Holy Ghost testifying to me that it is true! I know it! and as Joseph Smith said I know it and I know God knows it!

How I live my faith

As of right now i am serving a two year mission. I love teaching people about what we believe. Serving the people in my mission has been the most life changing experience. I live my faith by trying to be an example of the believers. If this church and the blessings that come from it are from God then it should reflect in everything I do.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Mosiah
The Book of Mormon is a record of some civilizations in the Americas and their dealings with God. Just as the Bible it testifies of Christ, letting the entire world know that Jesus is the Christ. The Book of Mormon also is proof that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, TRANSLATED (not wrote) the Book of Mormon and under the direction of God restored Christ true Church on the earth The invitation goes to everyone, read the Book of Mormon, ponder in your hearts the message it contains and then ask God in prayer to know if it is true. The Holy Ghost will then testify to you if its true but only if you have a sincere heart and true intent! Show more Show less

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

Mosiah
The Atonement is the selfless act that Jesus Christ made so that we could have the opportunity to succesfuly return to the presence of the Father. The Atonement included Jesus Christ's suffering in the Garden of Getshemane, The Cross, and His ressurection. The reason why it was necesary for Christ to give up His life is because all of us have sinned. We at some point in time have broken Gods commandments. We cannot pay the price for sin in this life ourselves it is to high, and also our sins keep us from entering Gods presence. Jesus Christ Himself said "19 And no unclean thing‍ can enter into his kingdom; therefore nothing entereth into his rest save it be those who have washed their garments in my blood, because of their faith, and the repentance of all their sins, and their faithfulness unto the end. 20 Now this is the commandment: Repent, all ye ends of the earth, and come unto me and be baptized in my name, that ye may be sanctified by the reception of the Holy Ghost, that ye may stand spotless before me at the last day." ( 3 Nephi 27:19-20) Because of the Atonement Christ payed for our sins and gives us the opportunity to have Faith in Him, Repent, Be baptized by the right authority, Receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost by that same authority, and Endure to the End. that is how we are cleansed from our sins. That is the only way in which we can be saved. Show more Show less

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

Mosiah
Because we believe that the Book of Mormon is more word of God unto us. So people nickname us "mormons." Our official name is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Show more Show less

What is faith?

Mosiah
Faith is a combination of hope and works. Faith is a hope for things not seen but that are true. To have faith it is also necessary to have works. For example we all have jobs. We all go to WORK because we know we will be paid. If we did not have hope for being paid we would not work. We show our faith by doing the things God our Father and Jesus Christ ask us to do. As we do these things we learn of the doctrine and our trust and hope in the things God has promised grows. Likewise if we do not DO the things God has asked us to do and we dont even try to obey Him, our faith, (hope for things that are not true) will diminish. If we do not hope for things we will not do the things, but if we only have hope and we dont act on that hope then it is only a hope. Thus Faith is a combination of hope and works. Show more Show less
