Who or What is God?

I just read in a novel about a character who believes he has to believe that God is so big and mysterious that he is unknowable or else he couldn't believe in him.


It made me wonder what the author believes. I know I've heard people say the same thing at different times.

For me it is just the opposite. If I didn't believe in a God who has a body, whose image and likeness we were created after, everything else would be just a bunch of gibberish.

For me, a father, especially a Heavenly Father, must be someone I can understand. Not that I understand all he knows and understands, just that I can know I came from him.

Do I believe in a wrathful God of destruction? No, I do believe in a God who knows me, understands me, knows what I go through day to day, and wants me to be happy.

Do I believe in a God who makes everything happen so I have to live a certain way?
No. I believe that God guides our lives if we choose to follow. I believe that I have a choice to follow or not follow. I believe I really can choose right or wrong, light or darkness, and he will let me.

If I choose wrong I believe I will reap the consequences, because I believe there is a right and wrong. Sometimes choosing which is which is difficult since sometimes there doesn't seem to be an easy or right choice. But, I believe if we keep trying to always take the best path, keep trying to be good, try to do right, that we'll get back to be with him.

We'll see him as a man, with arms and legs, a body, a face, a mouth that can smile.

I believe he'll smile when he sees us again. I believe he loves us and wants us to do good, be good, good enough to return and live with him again.

He loves us. He loves me.

He loves you. Find out more at mormon.org.

Mormons are Crazy

Why would anyone want to become a Mormon?

Mormons are wrong, deceived, crazy...

They say they have a living prophet, apostles, real authority from God that no one else on earth has - to perform baptism and other ordinances, and they even claim to know where we came from, why we're here, and where we are going after this life is over. They really do claim to know the real purpose of this life.

Funny thing. I'm one. I'm a Mormon.

Crazy? Maybe. Disturbed? My wife might agree with that.

Deceived? No.

Enjoying the restored truth that was lost when Christ and the apostles died?

Knowing that we have a real Heavenly Father who really can hear your prayers?

Feeling lonely? Feeling lost? Looking for truth? 

The Mormons have it. You can have it too.

Human Billboard?

I'm amazed at people and what they wear.

Many people wear shirts or clothes that have the name of the company that made the clothing.

I don't see the attraction.

I see the labels as showing something about the person.

Know what would be nice? If we could see what the person is really like based on labels they wear.

If you are a Mormon, based on our beliefs, these are some of the labels you would likely be wearing.

I've said I accept Jesus as my Savior and now I'm Saved! Yipee!


A person can just say they accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and they are saved?

The argument most "saved" people give is that it isn't your works that saves you it is the grace of God that saves you.

Isn't saying you accept Christ as your Savior a work? Something you do? So you are in effect saving yourself?

It's a little thing, a small epiphany to realize you are doing a work when saying the words but it is true. Maybe too small to be called an entire epiphany, maybe just an epiph to think this way.

So, since you are doing something, even if you are saying something, you are doing something. You are doing "a work."

So all I have to do is say a few words and I am saved? The whole concept seems designed for people wanting to get away with something.

After that I can sin, steal, kill someone, commit adultery or anything else that is a sin and I am still saved because I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior? Really? How can anyone believe that?

It stands to reason, if reason is even being used, that if you have been saved that you cannot become unsaved if the grace of God saved you. You would be beyond all earthly sin if you believe saying the words saves you.


Somehow it seems like something a person dreamed up to get people to follow them and pay them money to be their preacher. People seem drawn to the easy way in life. This seems to be one of those easy ways. An easy "get out of Hell free card."

What is the alternative? What do Mormons believe?

We do believe that it because of the atonement of Christ that all man may be saved. We also believe that it is the grace of God that saves us.

But... we believe that all men must repent, be baptized as Jesus was, keep the commandments and live a good life in order to take advantage of the atonement for our sins.

Christ himself said that if we don't repent we must suffer as he did.

We believe two things about the atonement. That Jesus atoned for our sins when he took them upon himself in the Garden of Gethsemane and when he rose from the dead made it possible for us to be resurrected. Two events for two different purposes.

It is true that it is by grace we are saved, but like the bible says, "after all we can do."

We cannot just say the words and we are done. It is a lifetime of effort and righteous living and then his grace allows us to be saved.

Just saying the words and being saved is not possible. Too bad, but too easy. This life is a testing ground for us to decide whether or not we will follow God's way.

God knows you personally. You matter to Him

You are a child of our Heavenly Father. Every person on earth is your brother or sister.

God knows your fears, your successes, your concerns.

He wants you to be happy because He loves you. Think of him literally as your father.

Just like any father, He is concerned about you and everything you do.

Does that mean that he will force you to make decisions His way? To force you to do what He wants you to do? To keep you from all injury and harm? No, no, and no.

We are here to learn how to make decisions, to experience life, to decide whether to be righteous and follow Him or to ignore Him. He loves you so much that He lets you choose.

He has not forgotten you. He is still there, waiting to hear from you.

It's time to find out more about your Father. The one in heaven that you may have forgotten about.
