    The Bible clearly teaches that good works cannot make us acceptable to God. Titus 3:5 says, “He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.”

    So, a Christian is someone who has been born again (John 3:3; John 3:7; 1 Peter 1:23) and has put faith and trust in Jesus Christ alone for his/her salvation.

    Ephesians 2:8 tells us that it is “…by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.”

    Our challenge therefore to the Christian is to open our hearts that it allows the Spirit to guide us in our walk, so that our lives are filled with a record of Good Works.
    I enjoy this post of mine..
    From the Forum RULES : "As you know, the Walter Martin website takes the position that Mormon theology is not Christian theology. Use of the term "LDS Christian" is inaccurate and misleading, and as such is not acceptable on this board."
