As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

    You will NEVER convince me. You contradict verse 9....9 not a result of works,....9 not a result of works,....9 not a result of works,
    Crow--you believe whatever you will--I'm not here to dictate what you believe. My points connect to what the Biblical writers believed, and the LDS church theology.

    Which is exactly what I postulated above--salvation is the result of God's grace. His grace. Not works--but grace.

    That leads to the next obvious point---who does God give this grace to?

    Them which do His works:

    John 5:28-29--- King James Version (KJV) 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 evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

    Matthew 7:19-21 ---King James Version (KJV)
    19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
    20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
    21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

    That is the LDS view of God's grace--and the Biblical one.

      Great post. When Christ would give parables, he was illustrating mercy, justice, grace, and salvation. He would often extend an invitation to act upon conclusion of His teaching. Do Likwise, do as he have seen me do, Come follow me, Pray, keep my commandments, abide in my word; all of these invoke action as a sign of discipleship.

      Christ has disciples, they stood out because they did the will of the Father. They were a visible sign, their lives an example or token of his sacrifice for them, as they laid their lives down to follow Him, and teach salvation to their fellow man.

      The life of one who has a broken heart and contrite spirit, one who is penitent, and obedient, is a life of one who will come to know Jesus Christ, those who know him will have life eternal.

        Thanks, Lloyd--and there is a condition in knowing Him:

        John 17:3-- King James Version (KJV)
        3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

        1 John 2:3-4--- King James Version (KJV)
        3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
        4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
