These Last Two Years Have Changed My Life Forever (May 12, 2014)

Last Blog
This week was a good one and bad one. We were able to set up two more dates for baptism. But didn't have too many lessons. We are working with Fabian who you met on Skype who should be good for his goal the 31st of May and also his cousin Diego. Last night we taught Carlos with Jaime, who also is getting ready and Carlos testified about how the apostasy ended with the Book of Mormon and also testified that doing the things the church says has united his family and changed his life. He said I quit drugs and drinking, (Then looked at me) And said and smoking!! I'm a stud!! haha  And everyone started laughing. His testimony filled the room with excitement to make the same decisions he's making. So at the end I invited Jaime to be baptized once he gets an answer. He also is the only one who isn't baptized in his family! He accepted to read and pray. Also his daughter, Jessica, who we baptized a little while ago shared her testimony about the Book of Mormon and he was like yeah I've never felt what she did but will ask and if I feel it I'll be baptized. Awesome!

Then we found a family who's dad is a cop. Right away they liked us and they gave us this really expensive juice! Will be a good future Mormon family. I'm stoked for this sector and all I have learned and grown from it.

These last two years have changed my life forever. I know what I want, I know where I am going and know that I want to return to my father. I know that through Jesus Christ we can do anything and become more like our Heavenly Father everyday. Faith is the root of everything in becoming like Him and being a success, reaching your dreams and helping others give up who they are for becoming the best they can be. It has changed my eternal destiny. I will continue living to get to the Celestial Kingdom and having everybody get there with me. Thank you all for helping me get out here, I have such an experience and to feel the effects of the Atonement in my life and the lives that have surrounded me. I bare these things and testify that Christ lives, that God is goodness. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen

    If Baptist doctrine contradicts the word of God which one is correct?

    Baptist Doctrine: Perseverance of the saints, AKA as once saved always saved.

    God's Word: Galatians 5:1-4.... You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace. (NKJV)

    God's Word: Hebrews 6:4-6 4 For it is impossible......6 if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance.....(NKJV)

    God's Word: Hebrews 3:12 Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; (NKJV)

    God's Word: 1 Timothy 4:1...some will depart from the faith...(NKJV)

    Christians can become lost.


    Baptist Doctrine: Water baptism is not essential for the forgiveness of sins and is not essential in order to be saved.

    God's Word: Acts 2:38 ....and let everyone of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins.....(NKJV)

    God's Word: Mark 16:16 ....and is baptized will be saved...(NKJV)

    God's Word: 1 Peter 3:21 There is an antitype which now saves us, namely baptism...(NKJV)

    God's Word: Acts 22:16...Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins...(NKJV)

    God's Word: Colossians 2:12 -13 buried with Him in baptism...13...having forgiven you all trespasses,(NKJV)

    God's Word: Ephesians 5:25-27 ....Christ loved the church and gave Himself for it 26 that He might sanctify and wash it with the washing of water by the word,(NKJV)

    God's Word: Romans 6:4-7 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death.......7 For he who has died has been freed from sin.(NKJV)

    God's Word: John 3:5 Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.(NKJV)

    Being immersed in water is an essential part of the gospel plan of salvation.

    Galatians 1:8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. (NKJV)

    The apostles did not preach Baptist doctrine, they preached the word of God.

    Denominations were not formed so they could preach the apostles' doctrine. Denominations were formed so they could change the apostles' doctrine. If all denominations preached only God's word, there would be just one church, the church of Jesus Christ.
