Hi I'm Benjamin

My hobby is Math. I love Chinese, I served a mission in Calgary, Alberta, and I love everything Canada!

About Me

I am a University Student studying math and I am a nerd. I love reading and programming as well as learning more about the mathematics of the world that we live in.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon to me is as simple as being a follower of Christ. I have been saved from pain and sadness because of Him. We all will have feelings of guilt or sorrow from mistakes we will make in our life, but those feelings can be relieved by relying on the teachings of Jesus Christ. The gospel can be found in every aspect of life. I am amazed to find the magnificence of God's infinite creations while learning fundamentals of transfinite mathematics. How big is infinite? Pretty big, but that is just one way that I have been touched by the amazing truths all around us. As we increase in faith by praying and reading the scriptures, we have an increased desire to become better. I have felt that as I try to improve myself. I make mistakes daily, but I know through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, that those weaknesses may be made strengths.

How I live my faith

My faith is inseparably connected with my everyday life. I love to study the words of the prophets whether they be in the scriptures, or online. I have so much to learn about our Saviour Jesus Christ! While I am not perfect, I try everyday to make the lives of the people I meet just a little bit easier. Sometimes that may be through long service projects, or by just holding the door open for someone. Some may think this sounds like being a kind person. That is my goal, to be kind everyday, and help others to feel the way Jesus Christ would make them feel.

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

Benjamin
God loves us all so much, and wants to give us all the blessings he can. However, just as a child may receive a reward for good behaviour, God's blessings depend on our keeping the commandments and living righteously. When we are baptized we show that we are willing to strive more diligently to keep his commandments. In fact we promise we will do everything we can to be obedient. As a result we are able to receive greater blessings and guidance. One huge blessing we are able to receive after baptism is the Gift of the Holy Ghost, or the ability to have God's messenger with us at all times to guide us and help us to improve. Baptism is a gateway that also leads to greater blessings, the ultimate blessing being eternal marriage, or being able to live with our families forever, even after we die. Show more Show less
