Aaron, we’ve seen you argue with your fellow Mormons against those exact points you raise here. No Christian has said you can live an unrepentantly immoral life. You know that. Christ’s Grace saves us and changes our hearts, which results in a change of behavior. Unlike in mormonism, which teaches that works come first.You mean Mormonism believes grace transforms a person so that their faith causes them walk in the newness of life? Weird. How is that wrong?
So the Biblical grace you speak have NO requirements whatsoever? Can I can unrepentantly live in lasciviousness and claim Jesus as my Savior? This may be the false gospel that talked about so much in the Bible (see Jude 1:4)
Can we deliberately live immoral lives and expect God to save us? Does God save us in our sins, or from our sins?
Between no effort to total effort, what degree of effort is required for us to receive salvation? And how does one know? Can you answer this question using the Bible alone?
Mormons teach that they can know by the gift of Holy Ghost: "For behold, again I say unto you that if ye will enter in by the way, and receive the Holy Ghost, it will show unto you all things what ye should do." (2 Ne 32:5) This is why denying the Holy Ghost is the unpardonable sin:
So where is Mormonism getting this wrong?
- Blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men, Matt. 12:31–32 (Mark 3:29; Luke 12:10).
- It is impossible for those who were made partakers of the Holy Ghost to renew them again unto repentance, Heb. 6:4–6.
- If we sin wilfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, Heb. 10:26.
