Keeping It Real

Scriptures teach us truths
 from God
One of the great pleasures of my mission has been to spend an hour everyday studying the doctrine and teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It has been an enriching experience and everyday I receive a little more of the feeling that this is all true. I have been able to read the teachings of Jesus Christ himself, the teachings of His disciples that carried on the work after Jesus Christ was crucified and put to death, the teachings of Jesus Christ's disciples in the Americas, and the teachings of Jesus Christ's modern disciples. All congruent, all co-linear, all of them beautiful.

I am so grateful for our Savior Jesus Christ and our Loving Father in Heaven. Who care enough for us to give us truth. Pure, eternal truth. How hard it is to find pure truth nowadays. Through the restored gospel we find out that truth is "knowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come" -Doctrine and Covenants 93:24. This simple, but powerful, definition opens a window for us into the eternities. It lets us know that those simple truths that Jesus Christ shared with us have worked in the past to improve our lives, they will work now, and they will work in the future.
