Today’s post is inspired from questions a friend asked about my beliefs. Always feel free to ask me questions!
We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.-Articles of Faith 1
As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we believe in Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost are separate distinct beings. We refer to the three of them as the Godhead. Today, I want to talk about the Holy Ghost (some people refer to him as the Holy Spirit).
I believe the Holy Ghost has the ability to influence ALL people who strive for good.
The Holy Ghost helps us recognize and comprehend truth. He also gives us spiritual strength and comforts us in times of trials. In John 14:26 it says; “The Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”
In John 3:5 Jesus was talking to Nicodemus, a Pharisees, and said “…except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” While we believe all have the opportunity to feel the Holy Ghost, we believe that in order to have him with you at all times, one would need to be baptized and then given the gift of the Holy Ghost.
I invite all wanting to know more about the Mormon church to consider meeting with the missionaries. They devote 18 months to two years to serving Heavenly Father’s children and to teach others of Jesus Christ, as well as helping those they teach have a stronger relationship with Him.
