Hi I'm Matthew

I like people who make me laugh, colorful things and also I like to eat food

About Me

I have three siblings who are way cool and I love my family. I really enjoy things that make me happy and like to be positive. I love music and sports! I love God, too! I'm going to BYU to study.

Why I am a Mormon

I have experienced pure joy from living the gospel and from my membership in this church. Each day I seek to come closer to Christ and there is no better way to do it than by living Christ's teachings and serving others. When I go to church here I feel the Spirit, and he testifies to me that Joseph Smith restored the gospel in its entirety under the direction of Jesus Christ, and that this church is the true church of God.

How I live my faith

I serve as a representative of Jesus Christ every day as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I preach the Gospel and try to help others increase their faith in Jesus Christ.

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

Matthew
The Atonement was necessary because we can not pay for our own sins. It is not enough to just say "I'm sorry" to God when we sin. If I stole from you and the only restitution I made was an apology, the price of what was stolen was not paid. There is no way for us to fully pay for our sins, so somehow, in a way I don't understand, Christ paid for our sins. He suffered for our sins, weaknesses, inequities, and pains, allowing us to return to Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
