(Hi all! Im a brand new member and this is my first post!) Im currently reading through Galatians with my wife who is a Christian but an X Mormon and the questions she brings up are interesting and so for that reason I have taken up pen (keypad) and pose them to the brothers and sisters here: 1. We know that it is faith plus nothing that saves us, HOWEVER, as anathema as it is, is someone actually DAMNED for believing (either on purpose - like Mormons teach, or on "accident" - resulting from human natures bend towards feeling they have something to do with their salvation)? My wife suggested "Perhaps the belief in works and faith is just a gross error like other errors that many evangelical Christians believe/subconsciously believe)?". Thoughts? 2. This second and final question is very specific towards Mormon belief and that is: Mormons believe that there are 3 levels of "heaven" and they believe most all "ethical" people are "saved" from hell by faith only (actually they dont even think they need to have faith in Jesus for this general "saving"), but in order to attain the highest "salvation" ("Celestial Kingdom"/"Exaltation"... becoming a "god"...) they are required to do certain "ordinances" (laws/works like tithing, ethical living, getting married in the temple, etc.), without which they cant attain the highest "level of heaven", but they would still be "saved" at a minimum by faith apart from works. The question then is, is there anything that teaches (and its hard because I have to prove a negative that Joseph Smith made up), that there FULL salvation/best case scenario standing with Jesus/God is resulting from faith alone?
