Finding a single true religion can be a daunting task. Some of my beliefs on the subject: The Bible is true. However, its difficult to understand. I also believe in The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ (yes, im mormon) and a living prophet on the earth today. Contrary to the belief of many christians, I believe that God never abandoned his children. I believe that we should never just believe something because a book says so. In my church we are thoroughly encouraged to seek whether things are true for ourselves. I have prayed thoroughly and have had the truthfulness of many things revealed to me. I have (through the Spirit) witnessed things to be true to the point I can't truthfully deny them. Beyond that, I have seen the things foretold of old (and in modern times) unfolding as was said they would. I don't know about others, but I can say for myself that I know these things to be true. Regarding the afterlife, I believe that we will all surly live beyond this life in a resurrected and perfect state. I could explain more of my beliefs about the afterlife if you want, but for this post ill leave it at that.
Whatever you take from this, good luck in finding what to believe!

StonedCivilian wrote:Question 3 - I've heard but don't remember why Christians say the Mormons are wrong about subjects (something about a prophet some dude with glasses or something who was wrong) but what makes the Mormons right over Christians? Should be a plain and simple answer.
StonedCivilian wrote:Question 4 - I was baptized. Why can you truthfully not deny him and I can't? Does God love you more?
StonedCivilian wrote:Question 5 - Think about someone that would be in hell for 14,000+ years (random number) do you think that's right that a all powerful mighty awesome God would create something then torture it for being skeptical? That seems like bullshit to me.

StonedCivilian wrote:Question 7 - Why does God not make answers clear to me? Why are there so many religions? Trust me I WANT TO KNOW THE ANSWERS or else I wouldn't be spending time researching. To me that seems like God is saying FUCK YOU...since you can't find the answers I'm sending you to hell....really is that how it works?

StonedCivilian wrote:That makes sense that if he has ever lasting love for us he wouldn't condemn us forever, however I'm pretty sure the bible (NIV) says idk where that we will be cast into hell for eternity lol.
StonedCivilian wrote:I thought Mormons only believed a specific number will be allowed into heaven? That obviously isn't right.

(common answer- I must of not recognized the answer...Well why would God give me an answer that I wouldn't be able to understand...that's funny to me. If he knows everything he should be able to communicate on my level.
... answers to prayers may come instantly in many different ways, such as receiving a feeling of peace, having an enlightening thought impressed upon the mind, or being impressed with a testimony of truth. Answers to prayers may also come through events which occur in our lives. The answer is instant, but the manifestation of the answer may take years to effect. As prayer is practiced, answers are more easily discerned.
