Yes sir! We believe that the Bible is true as far as it is translated correctly. Paul is someone I quote a lot.
I really couldn't have said it better! Good job!
And yet, your opinion differs from God's truth. I'm not trying to start a fight and will never argue doctrine with anyone of my own faith let along any other, but let me please point out why I don't believe as you do. Then I will leave the group, since I am not a Morman - - you can ask more of me in the CHRISTIANS fan group if you would like to discuss the differences further.
The question asked was not how your religion deals according to the Book of Mormon but as it relates to a Bible doctrine.
Repentance, atonement and sacrament are all religious works - - fine enough as evidence of one's salvation should never be confused as a substitute for the work already completed. Being born again is about nothing more than accepting the works already completed by Jesus Christ, the Son of God . . . the very definition of Gospel or "Good News" being his literal and physical death, burial and resurrection as the complete and only acceptable payment for sin debt . . . a debt we can never pay ourselves.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
~ Ephesians 2:8-9
For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?
God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
~ Romans 3:3-4
