Hi I'm Troy

I'm an artist, I play basketball, I love the beach, road trips and anything outdoors. Im a mormon.

About Me

I'm from New Zealand. I play basket ball, drive, draw, paint, and love road trips. I am currently serving a in the England Manchester Mission which is a once in a life time experience. And heaps of fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know for sure, by finding out for my self, that this church is exactly what it claims to be. The same church that Jesus Christ organized while he was on earth.Containing the FULL Gospel. I have lived life with the Gospel, and without it. so i know the difference between the two. And the happiness you experience when living the Gospel is greater than anything else the world has to offer. (believe it) the gospel is the "Truth" and the "Truth".. will set you free. And it has! The Gospel has set me free from the cares of the world and its insignificant distractions. It helps me see what matters and what doesn't. I can now see the big picture. I know what matters most.

How I live my faith

I try to help others where ever and when ever i can. without judging or hypocrisy. I try to spread the Gospel and teach others the truth about the Church and the Savior, through my words and my deeds. I try always to keep it real. to stay true to who i am. that's my motto. I just want to be a good man that does good.

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

Troy
The Atonement is the act in which Jesus suffered the penalty for all of the sins we have committed, so we wouldn't have to. In this earthly life we all have imperfections, and have committed sins, big and small. They make us unclean. There is an eternal law that states "no unclean thing can enter into the Kingdom of God" the only way to be washed clean so we could enter into the kingdom of God, and live with our Father in Heaven again was if somebody payed to have them removed. a price too large for us, that we could never pay. So one greater than us, The Son of God, Paid the price and suffered for everyone. And now He holds the key to cure each of us from our uncleanness. A priceless gift for each of us that money cant buy. To access this gift he has given us steps we must follow. and if we do them we are sure to be forgiven, cleansed, and allowed to enter back into the presence of God where we can enjoy the highest degree of happiness. It is our choice if we want to accept this gift. but it doesn't change the fact that he has already suffered for us to make this gift available. Which suffering caused so much pain and agony that He bled from every pore. The gift is already there. The only way to access this gift called the Atonement, is through Faith in Jesus Christ, Repentance, Baptism by the proper Authority, Receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and Obeying Gods commandments and enduring in righteousness until the end of your mortal life.
