Uchtdorf, McConkie and Lund references are verifying. Have I been saved by Grace? Yes , but am I being changed by Grace? We need to consider daily and especially before partaking of the sacrament.. Otherwise we might be taking the Lords name in Vain. I plan to share, Thanks
I disagree. The General Authorities have always taught the true concept of grace. The important point to remember is that we cannot claim that grace and just sit on our laurels waiting for the Judgement. We must return grace for grace by serving others in callings and times of need. Only by doing as the Savior would have us do can we then claim that grace. Otherwise, it is as if: "...and if it so be we are guilty, God shall beat us with a few stripes, and at last we shall be saved...". At the very least, we all can claim that grace through the resurrection.
I love the Grace preached by Brad Wilcox. It is a revolutionary way for Mormon's to think of the battle between works and grace. We certainly are coming off a generation of leaders that were quite firm on the works side and dismissive of (or just didn't give any are time to) grace. It does seem odd that Brother Wilcox preaches this and it seems to really ring true in people's hearts, only then do we hear a bit of it preached in conference.
