Hi I'm John, That's Me!

It's nearly 4 years since I've been baptized. I've changed much since then. Now I am a young professional, bold and adventurous.

About Me

My degree is in screenwriting, but my profession is in optics. I'm fearless, young and firm in my beliefs. My creativity rules my flow. You've got to see my idea book.... oh and feel free to visit my profile.

Why I am a Mormon

I didn't have a very spiritual upbringing. It wasn't until I was diagnosed with a severe illness that I truly sought to seek such guidance. This church is where I ended up. I find the organization and consistency of the church mind-blowing. The lessons of life after death make so much sense and it warms my heart. This church gave me a purpose and strengthened my values especially that of family. The way this church values family is where it should be. This church is true to it's core and I am glad to know of it.

How I live my faith

Prayer, obedience, and humility are some of the key principles i live by. I know the things taught by the church are taught ultimately by the Lord. All things point to the Lord. My faith is strong and I aim to work my way into the temple. I do things with a good intent. I push myself to be a better man. I follow the word of Christ. I don't know everything. Really, I only notice a shred of my short falls, and I only notice a shred of my blessings. Every blessing is an opportunity for God to grow us. I love Him and all his ways. These are only some things that being Mormon has made me.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

John, That's Me!
Yes the Bible is Holy and important. I find many of Christ's lessons in the Bible, but Christ did have lessons in the Book of Mormon too, and one should not disregard those. Show more Show less

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

John, That's Me!
Faith in the church. Members are "called" to different positions whether it's in leadership or otherwise. Recently I was called to be in charge of keeping the bathrooms clean. The leadership clergy have been impressed by God to "call" me to this position. And so I take it humbly and do the work of the Lord. Show more Show less
