Hi I'm Milton

I love to surf, I'm on a mission, I've probably knocked on your door, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from California. I love anything to do with the water. I'm striving to become a Medical Examiner. And I want to have a big family and live close to the beach.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was about 3 years old my mom and my dad got a divorce. As the years went by I was raised by by both parents but taught conflicting religious beliefs. When I was about 8 years old my mom was introduced to LDS missionaries by some of her good friends. A little while later she decided to join the church and get baptized. Since I was old enough to be baptized as well, my mom wanted the same blessing for me as she had received. On the other hand my dad did not want me to be baptized because he was raising me to be Jewish. For months my 2 divorced parents battled it out in court; neither one yielding to the other. The justice system could only think of one option, a compromise. The deal was that I could be baptized in into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saint ONLY if I was Bar Mitzvah'd first. I would also have to attend Hebrew School so that I could learn the language. So at age 13 I was baptized and Bar Mitzvah'd less than a month apart. Years later I decided to stay with the Church of Jesus Christ because I could not deny that it is true. I know by the power of the Holy Ghost that this is true and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a full time missionary in the Great Kentucky Louisville Mission and Iove it

Are Mormons Christians?

Milton
Are you serious? The church is called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Milton
First off, we believe the Bible to be the Word of God. The BIBLE is an ancient record written by prophets. It mainly takes place in the MIDDLE-EAST. The BOOK OF MORMON is also an ancient record written by prophets but it takes place on the AMERICAN CONTINENT about the same time as the Bible. A common mistake is that Joseph Smith wrote the Book of Mormon, this is not true. The book was translated into english by the Prophet Joseph Smith and is the "fruit"(Matthew 7:15-20) that he is a true prophet of God. Show more Show less

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Milton
Amos 3:7 "Surely the Lord God will do nothing save he revealeth his secrets unto his servants the prophets." If a person truly believes God is "the same, yesterday, today, and forever"(Hebrews 13:8) I'm sure they have asked "Where are the Prophets for our day?" or "Why would God stop speaking to his children after the death of the apostles?" As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints we believe God SPEAKS not SPAKE. I know that God has reached out in love, just as in Bible times, and has called a prophet for our day.
