What is the Role of Grace in Mormonism?

05 August

BYUthrough Christ’s grace by merely confessing him as our Savior? Or are we saved through his grace after doing all we can…both in confessing his name and in keeping his commandments? Both reason and scripture loudly proclaim the latter….However, God’s grace will not do for us what we can do for ourselves…” – Robert E. Parsons, associate professor of ancient scripture, Brigham Young University

Acts 15:7, 10-11 “And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe. 10 Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear? 11 But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.”

In answer to the question above:

It’s obviously not grace.
