Anonymous asked: Were you raised LDS, and have you always been so committed to your faith? Does your church hold any beliefs that you question or disagree with? What are your views on homosexuality?
I was raised as LDS, and I’ve always loved this gospel, of course when I was a kid I used to go to the church because of my parents, but as I was growing up I learnt more about this beautiful gospel and tried to do my best. I got baptized when I was 8, and I received the priesthood when I was 12, but as you can imagine, there’s always some troubles and I couldn’t fight against some demons in my life and I ‘gave up’, I was stuck in horrible things -that’s how I see it now- but in that time I didn’t see it that way, I was really immature and never realized how wrong I was; in spite of all those things, I never thought ‘going to the church is useless’ or ‘I don’t believe in God, this is stupid’, I always knew that this gospel is true. Like 3 years ago I got ‘converted’, I mean, I really started to thing about everything I was doing and I started to feel fear and sadness about my life and I decided to do the right things, but it wasn’t easy, and as you can see I’m still working on it, but now I’m too much better, I didn’t pray every night, I didn’t read my scriptures, now I can’t live without it. It was a really good change in my life.
Sometimes I don’t understand some things about the gospel, but I learnt that when I doubt about something, I just have to believe and try to understand. I don’t disagree with anything because I chose to believe; the only way you can know about a topic is living it, and that’s how you’ll know if it’s true.
I love every kind of people, black, yellow, white, gay, straight, rich, poor, because we are all sons of the same Father, our Heavenly Father. I would never ever say ‘gosh I hate him because he likes men’, no. I think that homosexuals are the strongest people on earth, they have that ‘test’ in their lives for a reason, and they need to learn about it. THEY ARE LOVED by our Heavenly Father, and no one has the right to judge them, God knows them and He knows everything, He has mercy for his children and He knows their battles.
And I guess that’s it :] any questions or doubts, you can ask me :D
