A PERSONAL TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST AND THE
REALITY AND POWER OF HIS ATONEMENT IN MY LIFE
BY Christine M. Anderson
When one asks me why I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I often reflect on the incredible witness I received that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. After much reading and pondering and intense study, I asked God, through Jesus Christ to reveal to me if the Book of Mormon was true. The Holy Ghost bore a witness so profound that I could never deny the revelations to its truthfulness. This knowledge has changed my life and my perceptions forever.
Some have said to me that they have read the Book of Mormon and they prayed too, but did not get the same answer. Others have studied "self-proclaimed authorities" on Mormonism and they "know" this church couldn't be true. To this God has promised if we ask with a sincere heart, truly wanting to know, not to disclaim it, but to truly want to know, the greatest source of truth, God, the Eternal Father, through Jesus Christ, will give you an answer from the Holy Ghost,. In matters of truth, I have learned to seek the correct source and not put my trust in man.
I know that the Book of Mormon is true! Why should God reveal His plan for ALL children to ONLY one group of people? I look forward to the day when God's children receive more scripture bearing record that he lives! In the Book of Mormon, Christ is mentioned more times than even the Bible. It is an absolutely incredible book to read! I hope as you study it, it will bring you to Christ even more, as it has to millions of others in the world.
