Hi I'm Kyle

I'm married and have 3 kids. I'm interested in polemics. I oppose all forms of statism and support the US Constitution. I'm Mormon

About Me

I'm married with 3 kids. My wife is Chinese. We speak a combination of English and Chinese at home. I served an LDS mission. I am currently working in supply chain. Outdoor hobbies: mostly hiking and shooting. Indoor hobbies: chess, wood turning, old-school video games, polemics.

Why I am a Mormon

My wife joined the church after she graduated from college. She had a strong spiritual experience that led her to find this church and she instinctively knew the message was true. She asked to be baptized the first time she entered a chapel. I, on the other hand, grew up in the church. My testimony is not based on a single major event, but several experiences gained over the years by striving to live in accordance with the teachings of Jesus Christ. Out of all the major religions and philosophies in the world, I have found the message of the LDS church to be the most comprehensive, intelligent, and consistent. The sophistry of the Anti-Mormon crowd only serves to further confirm my belief that this is the truth.

How I live my faith

I'm currently responsible for teaching lessons one week per month at church services. I'm not really a community organizer type... I prefer to spend most of my free time doing things with my family or small group of friends. I decided to create this profile on Mormon.org to see if I can help promote the gospel message online. I do not shy away from talking about religion and politics.

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

No, the church does not endorse political parties or specific candidates. However, the church does endorse certain basic principles that should be applied to the realm of politics. For example: "The Constitution of the United States of America is just as much from my Heavenly Father as the Ten Commandments." - President George Albert Smith CR-4/48:182. All political philosophies that seek to undermine the principles of the US Constitution and Bill of Rights are wrong. Show more Show less

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Everything you own actually belongs to God. You are a steward over his property just like in the parable of the talents. Show more Show less
