A place where members of all faiths can ask a "Mormon" any question they may have. Nothing is off limits. Touchy subjects do not exist. Members of other faiths can gain understanding. Members of the LDS or "Mormon" faith can be uplifted and ask a fellow member anything they feel uncomfortable talking about in another setting. Although I draw my answers from church doctrine and the teachings of Jesus Christ and his prophets, the thoughts expressed on this page do not represent the official doctrine of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. These are my beliefs and opinions as an active member of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
The Resurrection and the Atonement of Christ are the pinnacle events in the history of the world. The darkness and sadness of Christ’s crucifixion did not endure. Christ was resurrected, enabling the resurrection of all mankind. In our lives we will have our dark days, but because of Jesus Christ we can have hope in overcoming our trials and ultimately returning to live with our Heavenly Father.
Sometimes bad things happen- even when we make good choices. We get sick. Loved ones die. We lose our job or home. Our spouse is unfaithful. It’s hard not to ask why God allows us to suffer so much. Know that while God takes no pleasure in your suffering, your difficulties, regardless of their cause, can bring you closer to Him and even make you stronger if you endure faithfully. It’s comforting to know that God’s Son, Jesus Christ, suffered all things. He understands your pain and can help you through your trials. When you have faith in God and His plan, you can be assured that there’s a purpose to all that happens to you here on earth. Our time here is short compared to our eternal life. Coping with calamities can strengthen you and make you more compassionate. It can help you learn, grow and want to serve others. Dealing with adversity is one of the chief ways you’re tested and tutored in your life here on Earth. Our loving Heavenly Father has the ability to compensate us for any injustices we may be called upon to endure in this mortal life. Amazingly, with God’s help you can experience joy even in times of trial, and face life’s challenges with a spirit of peace.
