Hi I'm Collin Wagner

I grew up in Gilbert, Arizona, as a triplet. I attended seminary throughout my high school years. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a triplet, meaning I have two brothers born at exactly the same I was. We do not look alike, and we have separate interests. My interests include reading, watching T.V., and playing video games. I have a deep interest in space and the supernatural.

Why I am a Mormon

Following Jesus Christ in all aspects of my life, though it be an ideal that I am constantly striving for, is the only way that I know of to be truly happy and to experience the full love and truth that God wants us to have in this life. That does not mean that someone cannot experience love and truth without believing in Jesus Christ, but truth and love are universal things that I believe ultimately coalesce into Christ, and a realization of that does not come to many people throughout the world for many reasons. I am a Mormon because I wish to understand religion and faith and how it pertains to all of humanity and each individual's experience, and Christ's gospel is the purest source of truth, love, understanding, acceptance, and spiritual liberation from the torments of the human condition both within and without one's self. Each person on Earth is here for a reason, and each person is universally different form the other in terms of circumstance, needs, desires, predilections, perspective, and so much more. But the wonderful thing is that we all share the same Heavenly Father, who we worship according to the truth we have, and we are all a human and spiritual family who can do so much for each other in this often terrible sojourn through mortality. I believe that it is only love that can transform people's hearts and minds and bring them to a higher understanding that can only be exercised spiritually, an understanding and love that I so desperately need and desire and love, and one that I believe or hope that deep down is what we all desire. I am idealist who believes that each person has the capacity to do so much good and transform the world if we just trust in our hearts and follow Christ, and we can avoid the awful harm we cause others and ourselves that we often don't realize we are committing. I believe in the transformation of the human race, and so I believe in Christ. And vice versa. It is all about love. Love is the only thing that truly exists.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing by best to center Christ's love and His Spirit in my heart to affect all that i say, do, think, and feel. It is the only way I know to be even remotely happy. The absorption of truth and love into my soul keeps me alive.
