my dad fiancee is born again.
she says she knows the bible, but she didnt know when the kjv was written, and that it was translated by catholics, and it wasnt written to necessarily start a new denomination of Christianity.
she thinks grace is a gift given to us by God. i think grace is how you act towards someone, or how God inspires us to act towards each other…so when the Bible says “through the grace of faith you will be saved” it means to me that without living the way your faith instructs you to live and doing good from the heart, not just doing good so you go to Heaven, you can have all the faith in the world, but without grace your in trouble. (look at MT 25:14-23 it shows even though that one servant had faith, his laziness in burying his talent and doing nothing was condemned)
and how do i respond to “just pray to God, i dont go to a dr and ask for the receptionist”
i just say “yeah but sometimes you call the dr and he cant see you, but the receptionist takes pity on your situation and fits you in”
