Hi I'm Michael

I'm a missionary serving in the Vietnam Hanoi mission, and yes, that makes me a Mormon.

About Me

I am serving a full time mission in Vietnam. I do it because I love my savior and I want everyone to know what he did for us.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have had personal revelation that it is the true gospel and I cannot deny it. Once you know it to be true you cannot fake out Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I follow the commandments, John 14:15

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

Michael
I cannot tell you the full atonement in the little space provided, so I will summarize. Jesus Christ suffered, physically, spiritually, and emotionally, for you. Since we all make mistakes, justice says we cannot return to heaven. In the atonement, Christ paid the price to justice so that we are free. He paid for us, the hard part is already done. He also suffered for every hardship that we have ever felt, so when people say "Jesus understands" its not just some feel-good fluff, its actually truth. he had to know what we went through so that he could pay the price properly. The atonement is so much more, and you should read more about it. but simply put, the atonement is Christ showing us that he loves us. Show more Show less
