Hi I'm Aaron Sedrick

I grew up in the United States. I'm a Pianist and Cellist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I started playing the Piano when I was 5 and the Cello when I was 11. Besides music I really enjoy the outdoors especially rock climbing, SCUBA diving, and water skiing.

Why I am a Mormon

I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the only church on this earth that contains the fullness of Christ's gospel. I know Joseph Smith is a prophet of God, both called and ordained to restore the gospel to the earth.

How I live my faith

I try to follow Christ's example and live as He did.

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

Aaron Sedrick
The Atonement of Jesus Christ is the plan ordained before the creation of the world to provide a way for each of us to return to live in the presence of our Heavenly Father. The central figure in this plan is Jesus Christ. Because God cannot look upon sin with the least degree of allowance we needed someone who lived a sinless life to act as the mediator for our sins. In the Garden of Gethsemane Christ took upon Him the weight of our sins, which cause Him to feel such great agony that He bled from every pore. Later as He hung on the cross, Jesus again felt the weight of our sins even as He willingly suffered death. On the third day after His death, Christ was resurrected. This means that we too will be resurrected. We are unable to fully comprehend how He accomplished this but we know it provides a way for us to be cleansed from our sins. Through His Atonement all of our mistakes, our pains, and our heartaches can be erased because He perfectly understands. Show more Show less
