Albion, it's the same old story! I give you quotes from the Bible, and even Christ's own statements, and you give me evangelical hogwash! Christ gave a commandment; "Be ye therefore perfect even as your Father in heaven is perfect." If you read the last part of the Book of Revelation, it tells how no unclean thing can enter in, no liar, whoremonger, etc." We don't have to achieve total perfection in this life, and the grace of Christ is necessary for us all. However, as I stated before, Christ did not say that all those who make an alter call will be saved; that's evangelical hogwash! He stated very plainly and clearly, and on more than one occasion, that "IF THOU WILT ENTER INTO LIFE, KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS"!!! Now, you can try to twist the scriptures and evangelicalize them all you want, but you can not change them, and they will stand as a witness against you at the judgement bar of Christ!!!
How do you know that the quotes you use from the Bible aren't the bits that are incorrectly translated?
"We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God."
