In this episode, Josh talks about salvation by grace and the relationship between grace and works. Many Mormons feel that they must earn some portion of their salvation by doing all the righteous works it is possible for them to do and then Jesus comes in and makes up the difference. Josh talks about why that is incorrect and what Nephi really meant when he wrote ‘…for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do’. We truly are saved completely by the grace of Christ and we need to rely completely on Him.
