This came up in anther discussion and I thought it deserved separate attention.
Mormons definitely believe that people are an integral part of God’s plan to bring salvation to he world. He uses us to send the message.
Here is an example of some thinking on this subject from Feast Upon the Word Blog
Evangelicals seem to believe something similar, that faith comes by hearing the word, and that people are there to evangelize.
Romans 10:17– “So then Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. ”
In principal I don’t see any fundamental difference in how we view God’s use of humans in this capacity- people are the vehicles God most often uses to spread the word, with some exceptions.
Of course Mormons believe that people will have a lot longer to spread the word to their brothers and sisters and that everyone will ultimately have the opportunity to hear and accept the gospel. I am not as clear on all the Evangelical Answers to the issues surrounding this. Although I have listened to this: from parchment and pen: Fate of the Un-Evangelized
Do we have very similar or radically differing thoughts about how or why God uses people to work salvation? What does this say about our respective God-views?
