Salvation by Grace

Ensign, November 1988, p. 65; “Man unquestionably has impressive powers… But after all our obedience and good works, we cannot be saved from the effects of our sins without the grace extended by the atonement of Jesus Christ… Man cannot earn his own salvation.” – Dallin H. Oaks, “What Think Ye of Christ?”

Ephesians 2:8-9; “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

Oh my heart is so sad by the comment this man made.  They don’t believe this and to insinuate otherwise is disingenuous. In Mormonism you have to work for your salvation.

If you don’t go to the temple for endowments, if you’re not Mormon, if you aren’t active in the Church…all those things and more indicate there is no true salvation for you.
