Hi, I am Brian Nettles. Some people blog to tell the world what they and thier family are doing. I have a different blog for that. This blog is for me talk about God and my religion. My name is on it because it is who I am. And I am not afraid to discuss this important part of my life. No secret to anyone.
I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints – a Mormon.
I believe in God the Eternal Father, and in his son Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. I believe that God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost are separate individuals united as one God. And that we can be one with God exactly as Jesus stated in his intercessary prayer in John 14.
21. That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
I believe that it is through the atonement of Jesus Christ that all people on this earth can be saved if they will simply believe on him and live thier life in accordance with all his teachings and principles. We are saved by grace after all we can do.
I believe that God has chosen a prophet to lead us on the earth today and his name is Thomas Monson. I beleive that God chose a prophet on this earth in 1830 and his name was Joseph Smith. That through Joseph Smith, God restored the fulness of the everlasting Gospel to the earth once again.
I beleive that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the stone cut out of the mountain as prophisied in the dream to King Nebucaneezer that should fill the earth in the latter days – Daniel 2.
I believe the Bible to be the word of God. I believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God. I believe many other written and spoken words to be the word of God whenever that person speaks or writes words inspired and brought forth by the Holy Ghost. And that discerning the truthfulness of those words can be found through the Holy Ghost which teaches all people the truth of all things if they will only submit themselves to doing the will of God and are willing to listen to all commandments he gives them – scripturally or through inspiration.
I hope you enjoy reading through my blog. Leave meaningful comments if you wish.
