    Saved versus Redeemed? Firm versus Higher ground? Is this official LDS doctrine, or just academic pontificatng? What scriptures are these based on? I read no Biblical verses to support these unbiblical statements. To sit and put up with these "other gospel" doctrines is to fulfill Paul's frustration in Galations 1:6-10 all over again. And why would the early saints fall for amy new thing? Because they did not have the written Word- Hence, the Pauline epistles.

    Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic all translate saved and redeemed in identical terminology. One is "saved" from spiritual death and God's wrath by the shed blood of Jesus, the Lamb of God. His blood covers your sins, his death "nailed the accusations of the law against you to The Cross". You are redeemed by His precious blood, given His eternal Spirit to indwell you, and you become part of His family only when you are "born again", born from above. That's the original, Biblical Good News.

    This is secular humanism, works salvation, Masonic "further light", New Age/Old Eden Garden anti-God surmising. You can hear Paul's lament, "My people perish for lack of knowledge of Your Word, Father".
