Hi I'm Rich

I grew up all over the states. I graduated from BYU. I do taxes at an accounting firm. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports. I love playing just about any sport, including Basketball, Football, Baseball, and Racquetball. I also love playing Table Tennis whenever I have the chance. I like keeping up with the Utah Jazz and BYU sports as much as I can.

Why I am a Mormon

My ultimate goal is to be more like Christ. I want to be like him in all that I think, say, and do. Being as imperfect as I am, I'm so grateful I have a Savior who lived and died for me to make up for my shortcomings. I'm happy I'm Mormon for many reasons, but most importantly because I understand that I do have a Savior that loves me, and what I can do to draw closer to Him and be more like Him.

How I live my faith

I help organize service projects with a school in a poorer area in the community. Also, I try focusing on the needs of the individuals in the Church by giving them rides home from the airport, helping them move, sharing a scripture from the Bible, or doing anything else they need.

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Rich
All with other Christian faiths, we believe we are saved by Christ's grace. Unconditionally, we are saved from physical death because of Christ's resurrection. As for being saved from spiritual death, or in other words, saved from our sins that alienate us from God, that is conditional on whether we accept the free gift of grace Christ has offered. It's kind of like receiving a gift. We don't need to earn a gift for it to be given to us - it's given to us freely. However, if we don't accept the gift by opening its wrappings and use it, we won't be able to use it for its intended purpose. Christ's gift of grace is similar in that He has given it to us freely without any merit on our part and we won't enjoy the full effect of that gift unless we accept it by turning to Him through faith and repentance.
