Hey Luke! Wow! Thanks for having the courage to message me! :) And it’s interesting that you would say that that is the mission of your church—it’s part of our mission too! We have three basic goals:
One thing that really sets us apart from other churches is that we believe that we have the proper authority to act in the name of God, which we call the Priesthood. When Christ died and the last of his apostles died, the Priesthood was taken from the Earth. We believe that in the 1800’s both Christ’s true church and the Priesthood were restored to the Earth through Joseph Smith. Today, we are a worldwide organization and proclaim the gospel in the way we speak, live, and worship.
The Book of Mormon is the cornerstone of our religion and I know that reading it and praying about it WILL give you the answers you are looking for.
That was probably a longer answer than you were looking for, but I hope it answered some of your questions! Feel free to ask me more and if you would like a copy of the Book of Mormon, I’d be more than happy to figure out a way to get one to you! :)
But a couple of weeks ago, I made a goal to share my testimony/church things through social media more often and honestly, I’ve kind of been slacking. So get ready. Church things are on the way, the first of being my talk that I posted a couple of days ago. Check it out.
PS: Don’t worry though. I’ll keep posting pictures too. :)
I spoke for about 20 minutes and I said a lot of things that I’ve been wanting to say for a long time. Feel free to read, or not read, but there’s some pretty good stuff in here if I do say so myself. This has been my life over the last 7 months, and I know that I would not have it any other way.
I felt kinda weird using the words “sex” and “STD” over the pulpit… but hey. It had to be done in order to get my point across.
