2 Nephi 25
23 For we labor diligently to write, to persuade our children, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God; for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do.
24 And, notwithstanding we believe in Christ, we keep the law of Moses, and look forward with steadfastness unto Christ, until the law shall be fulfilled.
25 For, for this end was the law given; wherefore the law hath become dead unto us, and we are made alive in Christ because of our faith; yet we keep the law because of the commandments.
26 And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may...
"All blessings come by obedience to law"
Doctrine and Covenants 130
18 Whatever principle of intelligence we attain unto in this life, it will rise with us in the resurrection.
19 And if a person gains more knowledge and intelligence in this life through his diligence and obedience than another, he will have so much the advantage in the world to come.
20 There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations of this world, upon which all blessing sare predicated—
21 And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated.
Doctrine and Covenants 130
In Romans 11:1–2 Paul outlined God’s relationship with the seed of Abraham. What did Paul mean when he said that God...
3rd article of faith:
We believe that through the Atonement of Christ,
All mankind may be saved,
by obedience to the laws
and ordinances of the Gospel.
2 nephi 25:23
for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do.
This is a different gospel than in the Bible
For we hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law.
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
In Galatians Paul tells how if we accept one portion of the law beyond faith in Jesus Christ, we are obligated to keep the whole of the Law.
Specifically here, accepting Jesus Christ and then being...
This is my own speculative framework for reconciling the evidence for evolution with the biblical truth of an historical Adam and Eve. This is just a brief sketch of the position, I plan to greatly develop this view in a proper essay when I get the time.
First off, what does the science tell us about human origins? Anatomically modern homo sapien sapiens emerged approximately 150-200,000 years ago, the human population was never at any time less than a few thousand individuals, and there is such a thing as a chromosomal Adam and a mitochondrial Eve from whom all individuals are descended. As Dr. Craig has pointed out, there are indications these days that this "Adam" and "Eve" may have been contemporaneous. My framework operates on...
I was wondering if there is any worship of Maria, the mother of Jesus, in Christianity? I know that this is a big part of the Catholic faith, but I was wondering what aspect of what some would call "the divine feminine" or the Goddess there is in Christianity?
So I went through a near death experience a few years ago. From that experience in the hospital I had to go through some major intensive therapy. Anyways, to make a long story short for about 10 years. I was HIGHLY athletic. Running track, dancing, running the bleachers, wrestling...Like non-stop ! Anyways. So, I have this blood disorder that was serious. I noticed that every month I was gaining weight. No matter what DIET I was on. No matter if I exercised. I was gaining weight. Anyways, last week I finally put two and two together it was the medication.
So, I talked to my doctor and he said. Yes, you are on an EXTREMELY HIGH does of FAT hormones which has made you gain 71 pounds. Then I spoke to my pharmacist and she...
"LOVE" in the Bible: What is it?
LOVE / loving is the most desirable quality and character trait that we believers can possess.
It is assessed as being greater than faith, and greater than hope in the Bible. Let's Look!
To Love (agape') is NOT optional..."LOVE" are COMMANDMENTS!
To be spiritually UN-loving is SIN.
Unregenerated Man is incapable of spiritual "agape'"... a "love" by Man acceptable to God.
Goats cannot be "loving" nor acceptable to God. Only sheep can.
Man on his own can only: "philos" (brotherly man-to-man) and/or "eros" (erotic man-to-man)...be nice-nice.
The TRI-UNE God unconditionally LOVES (agape') us sinners...enough to save us through the "substitutional atonement" of Jesus of Nazareth, The Christ, The Divine...
