Ensign, ‘I Have a Question,’ July 1989 pp. 59-61 “What is the role of grace in LDS theology? …Are we saved BYUthrough Christ’s grace by merely confessing him as our Savior? Or are we saved through his grace after doing all we can…both in confessing his name and in keeping his commandments? Both reason and scripture loudly proclaim the latter….However, God’s grace will not do for us what we can do for ourselves…” – Robert E.
