When I surf around the internet, I see so many lies that anti-Mormons spread of the Mormon Church and its theology. First of all, they claim that the Mormon Church is a theology which means that one is saved by works. Pyttsan either! Take something old over you as you spread such lies about us. The worst is that they pull it all over again, like a parrot: kakaka-kakaka-kakaka! So let it all the time. Mormons are Christians and do not think works is redemptive. Absolutely not.
What Mormons say, is rather that there are two kinds of faith: a faith that is alive and include deeds, and a faith that is dead and does not include offenses. Then you should clean utilitarian look of the fruit (deeds) to see if there is one true and living faith or not. The mouth can speak so much: blablabla-blablabla! But what lies behind these words. Is there something there or it is nothing!
Not one act can save us, for it can only Jesus Christ do. Though if you can count a conscious decision to want to believe in Jesus and become a follower, then it is so. Then there are two kinds of perceptions here. One group of Christians believe that only some people have had faith in Jesus as the gift and some do not, and it's already predetermined that some will believe and some do not. But then the moral guardians and protesters. "Can that God hold on and pick and choose like that, either? For it would mean that some people were predestined to hell after all. "
Second group of Christians believe that all people have the ability to believe in Jesus Christ and that God does not really pick and choose among the people. Mormons belong to the latter group, because we believe that God has given everyone the ability to believe in Jesus Christ. Taken just otherwise.
But what should we have the offense to do? God needs hands and feet, money and other resources. He is not here right now in physical form, but the job must be done anyway, that is God's will. For is not it so that you ask God for help in prayer about things? I mean, you do so and believe that he will help you? Thus, God is not here, apart from the Holy Spirit. We humans + the Holy Spirit together making things.
If we put people of so nothing will be done. So ... as long as people expect answers to prayer to their problems, and the groans and complains to God everywhere, and the cries and whimpers of despair ... just as long as someone has to fulfill these wishes for you do not believe that the answer to prayer arrive one by sky magic with a "poof" if waving a rod? If you think so, then you have problems. It does not work so when it comes to prayer.
If we do nothing, nothing happens, and we want it that way? Nah ... could not believe it. However, when we realize that it is we who have to do the will of God and to ensure that good things are happening, so people get prayers answered ... do we believe that these deeds will save us? Nah. We believe that faith in Jesus Christ saves, but there must be a loving faith which works included.
Faith and Works, together it is like a coin with two sides. Heads and tails. How would the coin look like with a crown on each side, or tails on both sides? The coin, we would not be able to shop for in the shops. And who has seen a envingad bird fly? Not me, anyway.
