Mormon Dilemma 233

24 April

Active LDS

Encyclopedia of Mormonism, pg. 14; The religious practices of active Latter-day Saints include attendance at worship services and religious education classes on Sunday; donation of tithing and other financial contributions; service in a variety of Church callings; performance of temple ordinances on behalf of the deceased; personal and family prayer; scripture study; religious discussion with other family members; adherence to moral standards of personal honesty and integrity; genealogical research; service in the community; and development of habits of thrift and self-sufficiency.

Isaiah 64:6; But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

Acts 2:38; Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Hmmm…confess sins, call upon God to be saved…all other things according to Isaiah are filthy rags.

    Why does the Lord have angels record everything we do in the Book of Life if we are not to be judged by what we do at some point after we leave this life?

    The goal is to finish the race and hear the Lord say, “Well done, good and faithful servant”. Any crowns that we “earn” will be laid at His feet as we sing,
    Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty!

    Sure the books will be opened and we will be judged, and we all deserve eternal seperation from God… but the followers of Jesus will have an advocate there to say, “This one is Mine… case dismissed!”

    It will be like that so that God can be glorified… My list of sins and evil deeds would make you sick, but to have Christ say “all is forgiven” will be the greatest witness to all those being judged that He is an awesome and merciful God!!!
