I believe in God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Spirit. I believe they act as one unified Godhead - that their will and purpose is the same, but that they are three distinct personages.
I believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God, that he is the God of the Old Testament, and the Savior and Redeemer of the world.
I believe the Bible is the word of God.
I normally only read posts here or make an occasional comment, but I was recently encouraged to have a discussion in the "seeker" section because I am a Mormon.
I think that my religion and beliefs are in harmony with the Bible -- I study from it and use it often. However, I have been told by others that is not the case.
If you would like to have a respectful discussion about these issues, I am open to it. I won't always be able to answer right away, but will try not to let questions get stale.
I also have one question about the statement of faith for this group. What does "apostolic church" mean in a modern context?
Thanks, I look forward to interacting with you in a positive way.
Forty-five year old Elizabeth Plehn loves roses. For several years now she's made a game of giving them away to both friends and strangers. The hope and healing she's learned along the way have changed both her and the recipients.
In that tender and touching farewell, as He counseled His beloved disciples, Jesus taught, "He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me" (John 14:21). Particularly far reaching was the instruction, "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another" (John 13:34).
This would be pretty amazing. They're talking about having a version available for governments and businesses in 2016 and personal versions in 2017. I don't think it is going to be very common for awhile though -- $200k range.
From the James Bond jet belt to a "Jetsons"-inspired "motorbike in the sky," one New Zealand company is bringing the dream of jetpack travel to reality -- and thanks to a significant new investment, it could be here sooner than you think.
True faith is focused in and on the Lord Jesus Christ and always leads to action. Consider this powerful example:
Under the leadership of Joshua in the Old Testament, the children of Israel transported the ark of the covenant. The Israelites came to the River Jordan and were promised the waters would part—that they would be able to cross over on dry ground.
Interestingly, the waters did not part as the children of Israel stood on the banks of the river waiting for something to happen; rather the soles of their feet were wet before the water parted. The faith of the Israelites was manifested in the fact that they walked into the water before it parted.
How many times in our lives do we want the waters to part so we can cross over on dry ground? Trusting in God enables us to press forward with a brightness of hope into uncertain and often challenging situations.
I attended the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. There was a genuine spirit of goodwill among the more than 3,000 attending, including people from 130 different countries. U.S. President Barack Obama spoke about our need for humility and acknowledging our dependence on God. It was encouraging to witness government leaders and others of so many different political stripes united in faith and unabashedly proclaiming their love of the Lord.

I'm a computer geek with a wonderful family.
We feel very blessed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our lives and we're striving to follow Him. We enjoy sharing the things that have blessed us in so many ways and hope it can be of help to others.
We're Mormons— members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We believe that Christ is the head of His Church and that just as in Bible times there are living Apostles and Prophets teaching His Word to the world.
