The Truth

This page is for those who have a desire to know the truth about God, Jesus Christ, and religion.  If you do not have a strong desire to know the truth, or just want to argue about religion, then please donít read the rest of this page.  This page is written only by myself Richard Barnes and is my personal testimony of the many truths mentioned below.

I desire others to know what I know and experience the joy my family and I have as a result of the many truths and  knowledge we have gained from knowing who God and Jesus Christ are, where we came from, why we are here on Earth, and where we are going after this life.  I do not wish to argue points of religion, but only to simply tell you a few basics truths and then point you to the websites where you can learn more for yourself.  If Jesus Christ has an official website, wouldn't you want to see it?  Don't you think you should see it?  I will provide the link.  There, if you desire, you can get free information including videos, books, or have missionaries come to your home to answer all your questions.  Yes, all information is free.  There is nothing to buy.  It takes a strong desire, faith, prayer and study to learn the truth so keep that in mind as you continue to read.

Here are a just few basic truths I know to be true:

Jesus Christ is the Son of God and is our Savior and he atoned for our sins so that we can all have eternal life and return to live with God the Father and his son Jesus Christ.  Jesus Christ created the Heavens, the Earth and all things on the Earth.  God and Jesus Christ created man.  God is our Father in Heaven and it is God that we should pray to, and we should pray to God in the name of his son Jesus Christ.  We must only pray to God.  The Holy Ghost is the third member of the Godhead and helps us to know truth and can help us in many ways.   Satanís influence is here on earth tempting us to do evil in more ways than you may be aware of.  Satan does not want you to know the truth about God, Jesus Christ and his true church.  This is evident in the fact that the true church is not well known even though it is a large religion.  Satan is working hard to prevent people from knowing the truth, and will work hard to prevent you from learning and believing the truth.  This will become evident to you as you make an effort to learn the truth.

God and Jesus Christ have established their church on the Earth several times since the time of Adam and Eve.  Their church always has prophets which are lead by direct revelation from God or Jesus Christ to direct their church.  After many years each time their church was organized, the leaders and members of his church became corrupt and the church had lost its prophets and was no longer on the earth for a period of time.  Many other churches have been organized by man and not by God or Jesus Christ.  When Jesus Christ was here on the earth he established and organized his church again with a prophet and apostles.  After about 100 years, again the prophets and apostles died and the leaders and members became corrupt and his church was no longer on the Earth.  Again many other churches would be organized by man which are not the church of God, or of Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ established and organized his church again in these last days almost 200 years ago and it is here on earth again today.  It is worldwide and has millions of members.  His church is organized just like he organized it before, being lead by prophets, having direct revelation, and having twelve Apostles to testify of Jesus Christ just like before.  There has been prophesies by several prophets in the Bible testifying that the true church will be organized in the last days and be spread throughout the world and never be taken from the earth again.  See Isaiah, Malachi, Revelation, and other books.  This church I am talking about is about the fourth largest church in the United States, yet most people know little or nothing about it, and most of what they know is usually false information.  I am trying to give you the opportunity to learn the truth from the proper sources.

These are the last days and there are not many years left until Jesus Christ comes to rule the Earth.  It is time to decide who's side your on.  If you are not a good and faithful person, you will be burned to stubble when Jesus Christ comes.  Again, see the Bible.  If you are not on God's side, you are on Satan's side.

The Bible is not the only book of scripture.  There are other scriptures written by true prophets from other people in other lands at other times where Jesus Christ organized his church for these people.  There are also recent scriptures direct from Jesus Christ where he directs his prophets in organizing his church again. This new book of scripture is a gift which is more valuable than all the riches of the world.

Jesus Christ's church is here on earth and is the only church organized by Jesus Christ and is the only true church with real priesthood authority and will never again be taken from the Earth.  All other churches are organized by man and are not his church and when Jesus Christ comes again all these other churches will no longer exist.  What I am telling you is if you are Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim, or any other religion, other than the the church I am telling you about, you are not a member of God's only true church.  All these churches have no authority from God or Jesus Christ to preform any ordinances, other than marriage for time here on earth.  These churches teach many good principles, but also teach many false doctrines, which confuse people, making it hard for them to recognize the truth.  There have been many false prophets and there will be more in the future.  Some of these people have provided books considered scripture by some religions.  These books are not scripture from God including books and teachings of Buddha and Mohamed.   I am just telling you the facts and not trying to offend you or talk down to any religion or person. 

Now for more good news.  God loves all his children and wants us all to obey his commandments and return to live with him.  Families can be eternal.  If you follow the links below, you will learn how your family can be an eternal family.  All of God's children will have the opportunity to hear God's plan and learn the truth either here on Earth or after this life.  Yes, all people who have ever lived!  God is a just God and loves all his children and will provide a way for all to return to live with him if they are worthy.  God answers prayers for all faithful people throughout the world, and miracles do still happen for the faithful of any religion.  Revelation and scripture have not ended with the Bible as taught by many religions.  I repeat this most important fact, revelation and scripture have not ended with the Bible.  God still loves his children and is still helping them in many ways.

If you are truly seeking the truth, then continue on and get more information.  Do not let others or the power of Satan keep you from learning the truth.  The truth will give you and your family joy like the joy me and my family have enjoyed.  Pray in faith and you can come to know the truth about the church I have been speaking of.  The only true church here on Earth is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  It is commonly called the Mormon Church, but that is not the name of the church.  We believe first and foremost that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and the Son of God.  Yes, we are Christians, but not quite like other Christians.  I do not expect you to just take my word about what I have been telling you, but to learn more about it and pray about it.  If you want to know more, please click on both of the links below which are the official church websites.

I hope you will take a close look and spend the time and effort to study the truth as it does take a strong desire, faith, prayer and allot of effort.  Good Luck, and if I can help you in any way, just send me an email.

The official website for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is www.lds.org and is designed to help members of the church.  I suggest that you click on Teachings and then click on Gospel Topics where you can watch some amazing videos and learn about any topic.

Also go to www.mormon.org which is the website for those who want to learn more about the church.  There are several links to click on to get more information, see many amazing videos, get a free Book of Mormon and other materials sent to you for free, or have Missionaries come to your home to answer all your questions. 

Sincerely Yours,
