Dena is very good at expressing religious thought. According to my belief, I would only add one thing to what she has written about salvation, well maybe two for just now. Unless 3 & 4 come to mind while writing : )

One: Salvation means eternal life in the presence of God who also is our Father in Heaven.

Explanation: Mormon theology teaches that as spirits, we came to earth from Heaven “trailing clouds of glory”. It teaches that we as spirit children, were already a family in heaven before we were born. . Since marriage is central to family, ordained of God, and meant to be eternal, it stands to reason that our Father in Heaven would have by his side and be “one with” our Mother in Heaven, even though she is never mentioned in any scripture. We as a human family are actually spirit brothers and sisters, sons and daughters of a loving Father and Mother in heaven and wish to all return to dwell in their presence. This is a portion of what has been revealed about heaven to modern Prophets. Christianity rejects this modern revelation about God, therefore does not acknowledge us as Christian.

What are we being saved from? Satan. Some refer to living in the presence of Satan for eternity as hell, and believe that hell is the inner torment that comes from knowing what we might have been, might have had, if only. If only is a lonely phrase. Satan hates us and wants us to be miserable like unto himself. Satan is quick to claim his prey.

I want to expose the faith and folly of all belief, including my own if you wish to think of it as folly. I choose to think of folly as fally - - anything that trips you and makes you fall. Faith is anything that picks you up and helps you feel good about yourself. (simple terms for my simple mind)

I hope you are able to collect your own personal thoughts and when ready, share them.
