Infinite Arithmetic

I love math, and I love relating math to the gospel.

A long time ago, I realized that when talking about infinity, and limits at infinity, we are describing God and his attributes, because God is infinite and eternal.

By these things we know that there is a God in heaven, who is infinite and eternal, from everlasting to everlasting the same unchangeable God, the framer of heaven and earth, and all things which are in them. (D&C 20:17)

So, I started doing infinite arithmetic, and seeing how the results related to God.

Here are two of my favorites, a mathematical poem, if you will.

This is very similar to what Ammon says in Alma 26:12.

Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever.

Updates

I have returned home from my mission, and I haven't been emailing home weekly emails, so this blog has been collected dust for a while.  Sorry.

Here are some updates:

  • The first thing I did when I got home was go to the temple.  It was amazing.
  • I am working at Kneaders.  I was hired as a sandwich maker, but lately I have been working more up front.
  • I am attending the singles ward, and I think that I am starting to adapt.
  • I met with Hermana Potter at City Creek, and it was great to catch up.
  • Today was stake conference, and the theme was hastening the work.  I want to be a temple worker.
