    "Abe's faith"

    Could anyone explain for us, if Abraham's promises was given the same as ours, as to "imputed righteousness", as Bonnie defines it--then why the testimony of God here? Genesis 26:4-5---King James Version 4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed...

    The LDS and Biblical view of "imputed righteousness"

    Let's talk about LDS and Biblical theology. The LDS believe Jesus Christ's Atonement and Resurrection can be interpreted as "imputed righteousness". IOW--Jesus Christ died for the sins of the whole world--and released all men from the condemnation brought upon all men due to the Fall--both...

    Who does God give His grace unto life?

    And that grace goes to them which do His work: John 5:28-29---King James Version 28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done...

    Faith is a gift of God

    The LDS believe faith is a gift of God. They also believe men will be judged in accordance with what they do with the gifts they are given of God--as the Savior testifies to: Matthew 25:14-30---King James Version 14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called...

    Faith is a gift

    Faith is a gift--didn't the Savior testify we are judged in accordance with what one does with the gifts given him of God? Matthew 25:14-30---King James Version 14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his...

    How so???

    Theo1689 said: Here is what I wrote: Then you reject the Bible, which is why you are constantly RUNNING AWAY from Eph. 2:8-9, 2 Tim. 1:9, Tit. 3:5, Rom. 4:1-6, 9:11-13, 11:5-6, Gal. 6:5, Isa. 64:6, John 8:34, Rom. 6:16-18, Eph. 2:1, Col. 2:13, etc. etc. etc. But you keep RUNNING AWAY from...

    Adding to scripture?

    Here it is: John 19:30---King James Version 30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. You are aware there are quite a few books in the Biblical NT-- following that? So--are you claiming that is shameful?

    "Christians'" doctrine??????

    Does anyone detect an anomaly here? The critics here claim this forum isn't for discussing Christian doctrine--and then, proceed to list numerous Biblical scriptures which they feel accompanies their position. When asked how, or why--they interpret those scriptures the particular way they...

    The "only God"

    Wasn't it you who posted this? So--how does that render this as a rationalization, IE--- "dberrie said---if the "only God" is invisible, then who was this? Luke 24:39---King James Version 39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and...

    Of course it is--as to compliance--if Christ gave that ordinance to man. It connects our obedience to God's grace, and I don't believe God would extend that grace if it wasn't in obedience to Him: Acts 2:38--King James Version 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of...

    Where the LDS church stands alone

    So--my challenge to you, and others, is a wide angle approach of that, IE--what do you find in the Biblical NT--which isn't found in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as far as salvational doctrines go? With what the critics claim here--that should be easy--but the LDS hear...

    You say--dreams???

    Kinda like the Pharaoh in Egypt had a dream which was told to Joseph--and darned if it didn't appear later in the Biblical text as an actual famine in Egypt? Wait--was that--Joseph?

    The LDS are often accused of being polytheistic for believing there are real, heavenly gods. The Biblical writers affirmed there is a heavenly Divine Council of the gods: Psalm 82:1---English Standard Version 1 God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he...

    John5:28-29 and Lutheran theology

    Whenever I post John5:28-29--which testifies all men will be judged according to their works--and that for life or damnation--IE: John 5:28-29---King James Version 28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 29 And shall come...

    The Book of Mormon

    I ran across this claim today--and challenge all to explain to the LDS what one finds in the Book of Mormon ancient text which isn't Christian--or which isn't also found in the Biblical text?

    I was wondering--were you thinking that precludes all of mankind being judged according to their works? John 5:24 is a reference to being judged unto condemnation--not being judged at all: John 5:24---King James Version 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth...

    "sons of the Most High"

    The LDS believe God the Father is the Father of all our spirits--and they His offspring: Hebrews 12:9---King James Version 9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and...

    His sheep and the goats

    Matthew 25:31-46--King James Version 31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep...

    No other God--and LDS theology

    LDS theology concerning the commandments

    I agree. And Jesus is linking the commandments with eternal life--which the Mosaic Law was not capable of. Obviously--Jesus and His apostles brought the ten commandments to the NT covenant--from the Mosaic Law--and further back yet: So--how is that? Because the commandments were present--in...
