LDS Missionaries

The Missionaries stopped by last night to introduce the New guy. They had stopped by last week so the one leaving could say goodbye. It is too funny because both times they came right after we had sat down for dinner. They felt so bad, but I don't mind. It is nice to see them. We talked a little about the biggest question I am facing right now.....The god head. Three in one or three separate beings. Being raised Mormon I had always been taught and believed that they were three separate beings. However, the church that Steve and I have been attending lately (non-denominational conteporary christian) believes that they are the Trinity or three in one. The Missionaries pointed out some scriptures in the Bible and also lead me to a Oct Conference talk by Bro. Holland on this subject. I am hoping to download the talk so I can listen to it over and over and contemplate this issue. I don't know if I am leaning towards three separate beings because I was raised this way or because I actually believe it.
I am wanting to delve deeper into my thoughts and feelings. I have never had a close relationship with the Lord, but I know I want one. I feel so lost at times in my own desire for a spiritual connection. Well....wish me luck. I will keep ya'll posted.

Sharon, I just have to say how proud I am that you are really searching, and not just accepting either way. It is so important for you, for me, for everyone, to not just blindly believe, or believe something because we're raised that way. I'm not saying I think the way you were raised is wrong, but I am saying that you have to know for yourself. We all have the right to know, and searching is the way to know. So many people aren't willing to put forth the effort it takes to really investigate and try to find out, they just flit around doing what everyone else does. I will pray for you that you will be guided to that relationship you desire with the Lord. I'm also thankful for your example of really putting time into it. It's helped me to realize that I should not let myself be controlled by habit, but that I should continually do the things that will keep me growing spiritually--and I thank you for that.
