Lately I’ve been pondering again what Jesus did for us, searching for and reviewing answers to eternally significant questions. For instance, what does salvation really mean and how does it apply to me personally?
The gospel is often called, “The Plan of Salvation.” Yet how many committed Christians express concern that their Mormon friends haven’t been “saved?” Accusations abound that Mormons believe they can earn salvation and don’t need the grace of Christ.
What does it mean to be “saved,” anyway? What do we need to be saved from and what part of salvation is free? In the chapter summary of 2 Nephi 9 we read, “Atonement saves from death, hell, the devil, and endless torment—The righteous to be saved in the kingdom of God.”
