    I really struggle with my faith lately.

    Not on a "not believing" aspect, but on one where I don't go to church and rarely read in The Word, however, I do follow beliefs and try my best to follow my faith. It's weird because I used to live in Georgia (which is extremely religious) so I was surrounded by religion...

    For the past few months,

    I've really gone down hill. I don't pray every night like I used to, I don't ask for forgiveness when it comes to sins and sometimes I do bad, even though I know it's wrong and I hate it. There is not excuse to why I am not abiding by God's way. I would say "I don't have enough...

    The amount of diversity within Christianity is

    well documented and yet all that diversity cannot be right. A simple question that needs to be asked is what if you are wrong?

    The Church is an organism not an organisation,

    made up of all races worldwide, known to God and in many cases unknown to each other, being born of the Spirit following repentance for past sins striving to do good, firstly to the brethren, and then those outside His Kingdom.

    My brother died this summer.

    And though I would have thought that it would tear me away from The Lord, it brought me closer to him. I have a class at my church that taught me to pray everyday, read the bible, and obey my parents and that would help me get to heaven through Jesus. I really need to work on...

    If the Church had been capable of following

    directions as outlined in the Epistles, and stopped insisting that it is commanded of everyone to go and preach the Gospel disunity may not have become a reality.

    It is amazing how LDS members refuse to look at

    anything that will impact on their soul and those of their children, the following video from Ex Mormon files is either a pack of lies, or the truth. https://youtu.be/PdS8L4TFDM0

    because Deuteronomy 22:5 says I shouldn't be and I want to listen to that. God didn't make me to be a crossdresser. I know this and I want to do what he wants because he is the alpha and the omega the beginning and the end. Praise Jesus Christ my savior
