Hi I'm Reed

I'm a computer programmer/gamer/daddy...and a Mormon.

About Me

I suppose I'm a regular guy who likes most of the geeky things. Computers, table top games, sports, Star Wars, etc... I'm a computer programmer by trade, own a Magic the Gathering card game themed website, and used to run a dating website. These skills helped me meet my awesome wife by helping her with her computer problems. This led to 3 great kids and on life goes thus far...

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church so my story isn't as cool as others, but I did have my own conversion I needed to go through. When I was a teenager I went through a process of investigating multiple religions, including one I was raised in. Then I read the Book of Mormon, asked God if it was scripture, and He answered me. The church has improved my life in so many ways, and the doctrine makes complete sense.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church each week. I keep track of the membership records for the local congregation. I try to help other people when the opportunity arises, it feels good. I read scriptures daily, and consult with (pray to) God about my every day problems. I avoid most behaviors which would be harmful, which makes me stand out. This doesn't bother me, as my friends respect me, and it's simply the right thing to do.

Are Mormons Christians?

Reed
Jesus Christ is the head and very center of our church. He is absolutely my Savior. The official name of the church has Christ's name in it. When some Catholics and Protestants say we are not Christian, it implies we do not believe in Christ, which is absolutely false. Although we agree with our Catholics and Protestant friends more than we disagree with them, what they mean is they do not consider us part of what they call "historical Christianity", because of a few small beliefs which differ from what a majority of Christians have traditionally believed for hundreds of years.
