I went to the funeral of a good friend today. She was only 4 years older than I am. She was a good person, someone who tried her best to leave the world a better place than she found it. She did her best to practice her beliefs and be a good example of what a Christian should be. She was a mom, wife, grandma, sister niece and friend to many. She will be sorely missed.
As I listened to the talks and musical numbers I began to see a pattern emerging and began to ponder the implications. I began to ask myself what I believe.
I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the literal Messiah and Savior of this world.
I believe in God the Eternal Father who has a body of flesh and bones (as does the Savior Jesus Christ)
I believe in the Holy Ghost, the comforter and protector.
I believe that man will be judged for his own sins, not for anyone else’s
I believe in the scriptures (Bible, Book of Mormons and Pearl of Great Price and Doctrine and Covenants)
I believe that a prophet walks the earth today and his name is Thomas S Monson-President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
I believe that you will learn more from reading the scriptures and going to church than in any other educational experience you will ever have.
I believe that God has restored the church that was on the earth at the time of Jesus.
I believer that God lives, Jesus is the Christ and I am a child of God.
(if this offends you I apologize but I refuse to go another day without stating my beliefs, or testimony because you never know how many days you have left)
In the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
