Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this is the most importunate to me and the happiness it shows me everyday.

The greatest part of my life is when I can serve others and see there happiness in there eyes whenever I try to see what is the most important thing to me.

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

Elder Reisner
Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer of the world died for our sins, because he was our advocate with the Father. That as Jesus has said "no unclean thing can enter in the kingdom of god." We need a Savior to be able to return back to our Heavenly home and figure out the possibilities that we have to be like him in 1 Corinthians 15: 23 expresses the sublime way we can made alive the Resurrection he payed for our sins so that we can become like him and understand, and be resurrected to be with our loving Father in Heaven. The Father has loved us from the very beginning and he wants us back in his presence. He sees us who we really are He knows we can become better. Show more Show less

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Elder Reisner
We need a Savior because our Father in Heaven has already done thing's we need Jesus Christ because he is the one that can heal any wound we need a savior to satisfy the demands of justice. The scripture that helps me is in Second Corinthians chapter seven verses eight through ten. We have to have a repentance required and to feel sorry for our sins the only person who knows how to d that is our Savior Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
