April 13, 2016

Having listened to the message by Elder Mervyn B. Arnold (of the Seventy) given at the General Conference, I felt compelled to action. His message entitled ‘To the Rescue: We Can Do It’, was a clarion call to reach the lost sheep. Quoting Matthew 18:11 and 14: “The Son of man is come to save… Read More ›

Saved by Grace

We are saved by Grace!!

One thing I have wanted to discuss for a while now which is probably one of the most debated and misunderstood doctrines with evangelical Christianity, is the doctrine of salvation coming from faith and ultimately grace alone. This is a discussion where bible verses are thrown around, past LDS leaders quotes are thrown around and… Read More ›
