Hello I am a 22 Year Old Male. I am a member of the Mainstream LDS Church. I am a convert to the church and was baptized in September of 2011. I was ordained an Elder in the Melchizedek Priesthood on November 16th 2014. I have great love for the church but one thing that I can NOT agree with is that the 1890 Manifesto was a Revelation. There is way to much evidence proving that it was man made and not the will of God. There are also a number of other things that man has changed or abandoned that was not the will of God. Since joining the church I have done a lot of research and praying and have gained a testimony in the Principal and Practice of Plural Marriage as well as the Adam-God Doctrine.
I am primarily only looking for Women of the Mormon Faith, But if you are interested in learning and perhaps gaining a testimony of Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon and consider joining the Mormon Faith I may still be interested! - I am my fathers only child therefore I am also his only son and the only one to carry on the family lineage. - I would like to have as many kids as possible and do not believe in abortion, birth control, or any other contraceptives. I would like all wives to take my last name.
I have a strong testimony of the first vision and restoration of the TRUE Church on this Earth as restored by the Prophet Joseph Smith. I know that he translated the Book of Mormon. Without a doubt I can say that Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God and that the Book of Mormon is TRUE and is indeed Another Testament of Jesus Christ. I promise that if you read the Book of Mormon and pray to ask God with a broken heart and a contrite spirit that it is TRUE that you too will find the same answer as I have.
As each day passes my desire for living this life style and having multiple wives and many, many children grows stronger and stronger due to my testimony of the Restored Gospel. I want to have 3 to 4 wives because I feel it is important for each wife to have about 2 nights a week with me. Isaiah prophesies of plural marriage in the future with Isaiah 4:1 reading: "And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach". I really feel that living this lifestyle and following Gods Law that we can become Gods and Goddesses and live in the highest glory with our heavenly father. I would love all my wives and children equally and I want this family to be very, very large and centered around the Gospel and Teachings of the Scriptures and Restored Gospel.
I am wanting wives that have firm testimonies of Plural Marriage and at least the first three founding prophets of the Church: Joseph Smith, Bringham Young, and John Taylor.
I currently live in Oregon but would love to one day relocate to Utah.
I also plan to gradually obtain stock in the Relief/Dream Mine which may come to be very important in the near future.You should be able to also google this for more information.
I have great love for the Mainstream LDS Church but once I have a 1st wife and another 1 or 2 on board to marry me I plan to join either the Apostolic United Brethren (AUB) OR the Righteous Branch of The Church of Jesus Christ of LDS.
I would like apartment style type home(s) preferably all of us living in just 1 or 2 houses - Preferably in a Polygamist Community (United Order), But it can be on our own piece of property outside of a polygamist type community as well.
Some reasons I want to live Plural Marriage are: I am my fathers only son and child and would like to carry on my family lineage, I also love being in the company of a lot of people all the time and want my kids to always have a friend around, I have always loved the idea of a large family and pictures I see of large families bring me joy and make me want a similar family of my own, I have gained a testimony of the Prophet Joseph Smith and D&C 132. I know that the Bible, the Book of Mormon, and the Doctrine & Covenants are the Words of God. I also know that our Heavenly Father accepts plural marriage and holds those that practice it righteously in a higher place as the scriptures tell us.
I love running, especially when I am in shape, which I am working on getting back into. I plan to keep running and other fitness type things as part of a forever thing in my life. At one time I wanted to be a High School or College Cross Country/Track Distance Coach but due to this life style I feel I will need to choose a career that will help better provide for my Plural Family. I have various things in mind to go to school for and might even consider more then one. As of right now my ideas include: Business Management, Real Estate, Entrepreneurship, and Law.
UPDATE: I have recently began an internet relationship with an 18 year old girl that currently lives in Washington. She has been a member of the Mainstream LDS Church all of her life and she is greatly considering living Plural Marriage. She knows that it was man that discontinued the practice of Plural Marriage against the will of God and also knows the man has altered or discontinued other things as well with in the church. She will be moving to the Portland, Oregon area for school in July 2015 where I am located. Me and her text and skype every day and are absolutely in love with each other and can`t wait to see where this relationship goes. I just wanted to update everyone and let you know that this can now really turn into a Plural Family if you are interested.
