There is no burden to serve the living God. The Bible declares that we are to obey the Commandments of God. That is the work we do. Works are the other side of the same coin of grace and faith. That is why James taught faith and works, not faith alone nor works alone. We know that we can not earn our way to heaven and we do accept the grace of Christ, knowing that without Him none can be saved. Perfection comes as we place ourselves into the grace Christ offers as we do his will.
We do strive to keep the commandments, but we are also taught that we are not expected to do more than we can. We do as best we can and rely upon Christ's grace for what we cannot do.
As for original sin, we accept that it was taken away through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Therefore we are not punished for Adam's transgression, but only for our own sins that we have committed.
We believe that we receive no witness until after the trial of our faith. We believe faith is believing in what is not seen but which is true. The archeology of the Americas is still 90% untouched. Whereas the archeology of the old world is extensive. I have yet to hear of the uncovering of battlesites of Aztecs against the Spanish. Lack of evidence is not evidence of absence, it is just a lack of evidence because one has not found the right location. Evidence of the Book of Mormon's authenticity is found within the Book of Mormon itself. I know that Joseph Smith is not the author of the Book of Mormon.
The best way to decide if the SAT or ACT is right for you is to take a timed full-length practice test in each. Since the content and style of the SAT and ACT are very similar, factors like how you handle time pressure and what types of questions you find most challenging can help you determine which test is a better fit. For example, the pace of the SAT gives you a tad more time to think through problems, while the ACT can be more of a time crunch. Some students really thrive under the pressure of the clock, while others prefer the extra time to ponder a question. Try our QUIZ: SAT, ACT, or Both? to learn more.
