Hi I'm Anthony Osborne

Hello, I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We are sometimes called Mormons.

About Me

I am the proud father of four special children and I have a beautiful wife. Life in the gospel of Jesus Christ is incredible. It is a splendid thing in to know that Heavenly Father has prepared a loving plan of salvation for all of his children to grow in this life and prepare to return to live with him in eternity. I testify that life can have wonderful moments of heaven on earth when we walk with faith in Christ. I also testify that it is not enough to know. We must do. We must do the things Christ asks of us to be happy. (John 14:15). My greatest goal in life is to live so I can know the Savior and live with him for eternity. See D&C 132:22-24.

Why I am a Mormon

The Holy Spirit of God has testified to my soul that Jesus is the Christ and Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God. These things I know far beyond any words can say. Through Joseph Smith the Lord has restored his church with all the blessings of his ancient church to include: Prophets, Temples, Priesthood, the doctrine that families can be together forever, additional scripture (the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants and Pearl of Great Price) and the cherished doctrines of where we came from, what happens after we die, and what brings true joy in this life. Search your life. If you do not have all of these things please sincerely study the church for it will bless your life. The decision to learn more about the church is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. Please learn more!

How I live my faith

By small and simple things are great things brought to pass (Alma 37:6-7). I try to do the following things each day: 1. Begin the day with kneeling prayer to Heavenly Father asking for his help in my life to be Christlike. 2. Provide service, love, and support to my family. 3. Try to do my best in my job and work to serve my fellowmen. 4. Give of my time and resources to great organizations that bless the lives of others.

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

Anthony Osborne
I know Jesus worked out the Atonement by suffering for my sins and your sins and was resurrected setting a pattern for all of us to follow. The choice of what mansion in eternity we inherit (John 14:2) is up to you and I in how we live our lives. If we are valiant in following Christ and living his commandments (D&C 76:50-60) we can have a fullness of joy in eternity and inherit all that the Father has (Romans 8:17). Show more Show less
