Our Response to Faith

What does Christianity teach about the believer's response to faith?

The Bible teaches that through the power of God’s Word (the Bible), we are turned by the Holy Spirit from sin and a focus on ourselves towards a focus on God and his forgiving love.

Now, Christians respond freely to the gift of faith with a contrite heart, desiring to seek God’s will by following his loving commands, through works of faithful love, and by giving all glory to God.

I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

John 15:5

What does Mormonism teach about the response to faith?

In Mormonism, conversion is marked by acceptance of the Mormon Plan of Salvation and commitment to progression.

To progress, Mormons must now increase focus on themselves, through their worthiness, their works, their godhood, their eventual glory, where they will receive the honor of becoming a god and the ability to walk up to God as an equal.

Faith involves doing all we can to bring about the things we hope and pray for.
