Hi I'm Biodun Bakare

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love reading the scriptures and discussing the "peaceable things of the kingdom". I am a new Dad of the lovely boy and the Eternal Companion of the delectable lady. I am currently the CEO of a Haulage & Logistics firm in Nigeria. I have served a great and honourable mission to Nig. Port Harcourt Mission "1995-1997". I am currently a High Councilor in Lagos Nigeria Stake.

Why I am a Mormon

The Truth about my life that i lived has helped me to regret why I was not born into the Church. The doctrines make sense to me and has moved me further away from the vain and false teachings that pervades the entire Nigerian christian community. Such teachings as witches and wizards are the ones behind every misfortune man encounters. This is absurd!! But the teachings of the LDS is simple. Adversities are meant to teach us lessons and no matter what, we shouldn't bother about these things but the fact that Heavenly Father is kind enough to help us through the adversities and if we are patient and humble, we will come off triumph and better and stronger in Him. Another terrible doctrine is that we should pray for our enemies to die!! Instead of this, I have another firm belief that Christ never taught me to do that, rather to pray for them that the evil spirit that has taken possession of them leaves them. Furthermore, is the doctrine of eternal life in the Celestial Kingdom. There is nothing as one heaven and one hell, that is the fact!!!

How I live my faith

My faith is my living waters. It is as important as drugs are important to the dying who (if) he does not take the drugs, will DIE!! I am currently the Young Men President of Ogba Ward, Lagos Stake of Zion. This is the position the Lord has put me for over 4yrs!! I have been able to the Ogba Ward on the international calendar of the Church. Annually, we hold Camping activity, and Ward Youth Conference. The Young Men virtually becomes one of the best auxiliary in the Ward, and the best Young Men in Nigeria. It is among them that we have the first recipient of the "Duty To God Award Medallion" in the entire Nigeria. I am proud of them as they are of me!! The Young Men even went to the Police Station near the Chapel for clean up and this example has moved lots of non-member Young Men to join the Church and become baptized. http://www.mormontimes.com/article/1549/yourtimes/home%20&%20family

Why do Mormons believe in “eternal life?”

Biodun Bakare
Yes!! That is the message of Restoration. We believe it is real promise. We know the qualities that can take anyone there. We know the way there. Christ said: "This is life eternal, that they may know Thee.." Knowing God the Eternal Father is the beginning of attaining eternal life. Show more Show less
