Over at MAdB there is a really interesting discussion that I haven’t seen before. A Mormon plans on teaching “salvation by grace” this week in Sunday School. He wants to know how to go about doing this without offending anyone. This has inspired a debate about whether or not we ARE saved by grace.
This debate is nothing new on that board, but usually it’s a handful of Evangelicals heatedly debating Mormons. This time it’s Mormons vs. Mormons, and there seems to be more grace-Mormons than works-Mormons. A friend of mine, Rhinomelon, is the only Evangelical you’ll find in the discussion.
One of the more interesting spins is interpreting “after all that we can do” as “in spite of all we can do”.
I’m quite encouraged by it and I think others will be too.
