Hi I'm Paul Shreeve

I'm an avid reader, Gardiner, and singer. But most importantly I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Paul, but you already knew that. Im an amatuesr christian song writer, and singer. I'm a young man who suffers from a severe case of M.D.D. also known as major depressive disorder. Anyone who has dealt with a mental/emotional disorder knows that life is hard for those of us afflicted with it. We live with a constant fear that we aren't going to make it because we can't beat the affliction, and I understand why some would choose to end their own lives from it. I almost killed myself... But mine is a story of hope. I saw death and turned away. And through the mercy of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, I have become the master of my affliction. And He can do the same for all who will ask with faith, believing that He can help them. I'm currently serving an LDS mission in Eugene Oregon.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? Because I know it is true. There is nothing that could shake me from that conviction. contact me if you wish specifics.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the teachings I have grown up with. I read from the scriptures, and I pray to my Heavenly father often, and seek to always have His spirit near. What I do isn't all that special, many people do the exact same thing. But something that is different about me from many of those people is my attitude in those actions. They are not routine actions, instead they are simple expressions of my belief in God and my desire to both please and serve Him. He has given me so much that I try to show my gratitude by living my life according the way that The Lord, Jesus Christ lived His.

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

Paul Shreeve
The Atonement of Jesus Christ was the greatest act in the history of this world. It was when Jesus Christ suffered and took upon Him all of our pains, afflictions, and sins. When Adam disobeyed the commandment that was given by God in the Garden of Eden, he and all of mankind became fallen, and wicked by nature. Because of this, men could no longer be in the presence of God. The atonement was the act that overcame not only the original sin of Adam, freeing all men from the condemnation of that original sin, but it also overcame all of the sins of mankind individually. It had to be Christ because He was the only one able to satisfy the demands of justice by living a completely sinless life. one who was never subject to the law of justice because of His innocence. Because of this, Jesus Christ now stands as our advocate with Our Father in Heaven, and pleads our case before Him, on the condition that we obey the Commandments that have been given and strive to live in The Lord's way. Understandably No one save Christ was, is, or ever will be perfect; but because the Lord took upon Him our sins, he can forgive us of those mistake we make if we turn to him and repent with true intent. If we will repent of our shortcomings, The Lord will forgive us and make it possible for us to return to our Father in Heaven. Show more Show less
