Obviously you are not a Christian. We are saved by Grace, not by any deeds. If
we love our Jesus, we will show it in our actions. But we are not saved by our
actions, but by the blood of the Saviour. He went to the cross for you and I and
to take upon Him our sins. He did not go to the cross so that we could keep
score with how many good deeds I did today and how many you did. No, that is
human.Grace is grace. When we Christians sing the song we know the
difference and why we sing it.
To amazing grace -- I believe Jesus said, "If you love me, keep my
commandments." My bet is that he meant it. Still, we do believe that all sincere
efforts to fulfill his will (by doing his "works" I suppose) would be futile
without the Atonement.And to Brother Plummer -- Do you get a big
thrill from mocking the sincere beliefs of others? Open your mind a little.
Title in article is "Amazing grace"? Really? Mormons are not people of the
"Amazing Grace." They have works. Christians go for the Grace... not
Mormons.What an odd title. Perhaps wishful thinking.
The pace in today's world is very frenetic. It's easy to get caught up in our
day-to-day problems and forget our spiritual side. What helps me to stay
grounded is attending church and taking the time to ponder my life. When I say
my prayers, I try to think first of my blessings and that seems to help. The
Atonement is right up there at the top of my list. I try to think of the Savior
during the sacrament. Because the world is getting to be such a tough place,
it's my faith in my Savior and His Atonement that makes my life good.
Why don't we think of Christ enough? I'd like to get some mormons to respond,
but anyone else would be fine . . .
Yes think about it and tap your shoes together 3 times.
I think the problem is that we do not spend enough time thinking about our
neighbors and helping with more than just lip service in following Jesus's
commandment of love thy neighbor. Making ourselfes feel holy by thinking about
religion doesn't change anything or fool anyone, most of all Jesus.
