Hi I'm Nick

I'm a musician. I love physics. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am in college (physics major). I enjoy physics because it shows the beauty and order in everything. Gaining knowledge in physics has strengthened my personal testimony, because I see the world for what it is, and I am used to thinking critically. I have found that the gospel is true from any lens. I love music more than almost anything else. I have played the piano since I was 8 and sung since I was 15. During high school, I got into electronic dance music, and started DJing and producing it. Most recently, on the mission I've picked up a bit of guitar. I don't know why, but music moves me in a way that nothing else comes close to. When I left for school I signed with a small record label, and finished my first album a couple of years ago. I love using music to share the love of Christ. Even though the music that I write isn't strictly "Christian music" I have found that I can still share my testimony through it, because it's just about my life, and Christ is a huge part of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to two faithful members of this church. I cannot think of any time I didn't believe, or at least want to believe that this was the true church of Jesus Christ. However, I'm also inquisitive and stubborn, and it's hard for me to accept things as true without any evidence. So I have spent a lot of time studying the history of the LDS church, as well as the many unique points of doctrine, and I have found that it all makes sense. I believe any sincere study of all aspects of the church, in comparison with God's people in the Old Testament, and his church in the New Testament, will come to the same result. But I'm not "converted" by logic. My testimony comes from the fact that I have taken my doubts to the Lord, and he has answered them. The facts simply reinforce what I already know: that this church brings joy where there is sorrow, light where there is darkness, hope where there is despair, and healing where there is pain. The doctrines of this church reconcile ALL men and women to God - not a select few. That is the message that is preached throughout the Bible, and the Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I'm currently serving a mission, because I know this gospel is true, and brings happiness. There are people out there that don't know that, and they deserve the chance to accept it. I know that through my efforts, the Lord will bless people.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Nick
We worship God, our Father, and Jesus Christ, our Savior. That is all. Joseph Smith, was simply an instrument in the hands of God. We revere him for his selfless service, for his loyalty to the gospel despite merciless (and I do mean merciless) persecution, and for his many great insights and teachings. But to say that we worship him would be incorrect. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Nick
Short answer: Because we believe in Jesus Christ, and it testifies of Him. Long answer: The Holy Bible is a collection of accounts of God's dealings with men. It describes God's love for His children, His justice and mercy, His miracles and power. The Old Testament prophesies of a coming Messiah, and the New Testament tells the deeds of that Messiah when he came: His miracles among men, his persecution and suffering, and his final victory over death. Together, they demonstrate that God loves His children, and will keep his promises to them - the greatest promise being redemption from death and hell through the atonement of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
