The "P" in TULIP...explains a lot.lol. You beg to differ no one has assurance, or no Mormon has assurance ? As I just got done informing our fellow poster, I'm not really interested in telling Mormons how horrible they are because they are Mormons, or how screwed up their doctrines are.
This thread and all the ones that are related to it began over a month ago. It's hard to know that because the author keep changing the topic and creating new threads. Someone dropping into any of the newer threads would have no understanding he and I were discussing a fairly singular topic; the place of obedience (or works) in the context of grace. I don't need to be Mormon to discuss that and I don't have to hold Latter Day Saints in contempt to do so. That I do think The Church of Latter Day Saints is an apostate and heretical cult (I have been forthcoming about that, and it is the official position of this forum) does not prevent me from op-relevant, topical discoursed based on the one book we share in common as authoritative; the Bible.
..... if I understood the intent of your post correctly, then, yes, it is possible to know one is saved, is being saved, and will be saved. That can be understood with a sound exegetical reading of scripture and I have already covered some of that (like Romans 1:8 or 1 Cor. 3:11-15) in these discussions. And, yes, there was dissent over the plain reading of those texts when I posted them.
I know I'm saved....I don't need to "do" to merit salvation nor maintain salvation as the mormons teach.
The mormons who visit this forum can be freed from their false sense of salvation by accepting the true gospel of Jesus Christ.
