Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I believe no I KNOW this church is the right one and is where I want to be and need to be (^v^)/ This is my family^^ this is the church which is built upon the rock-Jesus Christ^^ If you don 't believe me, then ask the missionaries, read the book of mormon, look on www.lds.org or something:3 God is our father and he loves us!^^

How I live my faith

I am called to serve a mission in Busan South-Korea this year (2015) for 18 months!:D I truly want to become what the lord wants me to be and serve others and be christlike. That 's why I follow Jesus, and I will go wherever he leads me. I do scripture study, I pray, and I practice to live the lords way. I will make my ways into his ways (/^♡^)/

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

Amy Markus
It id the most important and most transcendent event in the history of the world. Through His suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the cross, the Savior atoned for our sins. This is the good news for all people In the Garden of Gethsemane, the weight of our sins caused Him to feel such agony that He bled from every pore (Doctrine and Covenants 19:16-17).Later, as He hung upon the cross, Jesus again felt the weight of our sins even as He willingly suffered painful death by one of the most cruel methods ever known. Jesus the Christ, page 462 states, “It seems, that in addition to the fearful suffering incident to crucifixion, the agony of Gethsemane had recurred, intensified beyond human power to endure. In that bitterest hour the dying Christ was alone, alone in most terrible reality.”The Savior tells us:“For behold, I... have suffered these things for all, that they might not suffer... even as I.” (Doctrine and Covenants 19:16-17)Jesus Christ did what only He could do in atoning for our sins. To make His Atonement fully effective in our individual lives, we must have faith in Christ, repent of our sins, be baptized and confirmed by one having authority, receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, obey God’s commandments, receive sacred ordinances, and strive to become like Him. As we do these things through His Atonement, we can return to live with Him and our Heavenly Father forever. Show more Show less
