Mormon Dilemma 4 – Power to Save
Matthew 1:21 says an angel of the Lord told Joseph and Mary she would bring forth a Son, and to call Him Jesus,
“For He shall save His people from their sins”.
Mormon theology tells us that members of the Church are the saviors of men. D&C 103:9 says;
“For they were set to be a light unto the world, and to be the saviors of men.”
Who’s telling the truth here? Both of these statements can’t possibly be right! This poses a huge dilemma – who holds the power to save?
Do the Mormons hold the power to save through their priesthood or through the times they stand in as proxy to be baptized for dead people? Or is it as God tells us in the Bible? Only God Himself has the power to save His people?
