Hi I'm Royal Jay

I'm a libertarian, a political advocate, a mentor for troubled youth, a salesman, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

like every blue blooded American boy I love to watch college football, being in the outdoors, camping, hiking, whitewater kayaking, and the list goes on and on. Throughout numerous jobs that I have I've met a lot of people, had a lot of hard times, and a lot of really really good times. Though the one thing that I wanted after questioning everything, politics, laws, churches, cultural structures, and the purpose of life all I TRULY WANTED TO KNOW WAS HOW TO FIND TRUE PEACE. Not thrills, not addictions, not snake oil salesmans lie, just true peace with myself. I feel that liberty, being self sufficient, and families is the key to that peace. I will fight tooth and nail for someone's freedom. I worked at a boys home for troubled youth many of which had been victims of sexual abuse. I want to help people and make people laugh.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because the Book of Mormon is true. I left the church for a few years and questioned everything about it. However the feeling that I feel when I read it brings me more peace than anything that I've seen or experienced in my life. The book and it's teachings coincide with mine. The book aligns with my political views of Non interventionist foreign policy Limited governments Freedom of religion Warnings of secret combinations that seek power (corruption, political lies, governments seizing more and more power.) But most importantly it teaches me that the devil is the father of all lies, coercion, addiction, sorrow, depression, fear. And that god and his son Jesus Christ are hope, joy, love, meekness, kindness, charity, light. I know that only through freedom and love, that comes from and through our savior Jesus Christ can man be made free again. I invite anyone reading this to go to the number one source on whether or not this is indeed Jesus Christ's restored church, the Book of Mormon. Then pray to god in the name of Christ if this book is not true. I have felt it, I have been healed of guilt sorrow, shame, addictions, and despair by my savior. Come read this book.... Pray, and god will manifest it's truthfulness. Then be baptized by the proper authority that has been restored and allow Jesus Christ atonement to heal you!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to help out others. I live my faith by laughing and helping others to experience joy. There is to much sorrow.

What is faith?

Royal Jay
If a quarterback has faith in his wide receiver he will throw him the football, believing that he will catch it. When you buy a candy bar at the store you don't rip open the wrapper to make sure the candy is there... You demonstrate faith and take that action (buying it). It's the same thing with faith in Jesus Christ. If we have faith in him then we know that indeed we can follow his teachings and his example. We can be baptized by proper authority, devote our lives to serving others, and seek to build up the kingdom of God. Faith is having the courage to not only believe... But to take action on that belief. James 1:5 speaks of asking of God, if you are struggling I invite you to ask of God. And have the faith to take those actions to free yourself from the misery, guilt, shame, and pain that sins and regrets cause in your life. Show more Show less

What is the Law of Chastity?

Royal Jay
Jesus Christ spoke against lust. The law of chastity is key to keeping and preserving families. The law of chastity means not lusting or performing and sexual acts of any nature outside of the bonds between a man and a woman that are lawfully wedded. Many people will scoff and say his is silly and impossible. However when you look around the world and see so many children born out of wedlock, marriages torn apart by adultery, pornagraphy, lust. Not to mention the objectifying of gods children by others to see them only as a collection of body parts, or a sexual object. The need for the world to live the law of chastity has never been bigger. Claiming a sexual addiction is natural doesn't mean it's not an addiction. I encourage anyone who has a sexual addiction, be it to porography or anything else. To seek help and guidance. The lds church has created the LDS 12 step addiction recovery program to help all those that are in need. If you are not lds and are reading this I'd invite you to friend me on facebook and I'd love to discuss with you how the gospel of Jesus Christ helps free us from all of our addictions. I used to work at a boys home for underage sex offenders and saw the joy and healing hat happened to boys that lived the law of chastity and allowed the atonement of Jesus Christ to begin to heal them, and let them go on with their lives.

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

Royal Jay
I'm a libertarian and an avid supporter of Ron Paul. My mother loves canidates that I hate. The church has members of most if not all political parties, the reason for this is that members of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints come from all walks of life. The church is not political, the members like all men are human, as such they support and are against all types of laws and political agendas. We do however believe in upholding the law. He highest law of which In America is the constitution which I believe was inspired of God. Show more Show less
