“The definition of grace in Mormonism is different from what the Bible teaches. Mormons are taught that grace is nothing more than God’s ‘enabling power’ to help them keep commandments in order to qualify for exaltation. However, by using the example of Abraham and the teaching of Paul, Christians can explain a clear scriptural understanding of God’s grace.” – Loren Pankratz, “Sharing the Good News with Mormons” edited by Eric Johnson and Sean McDowell, p. 263.
Loren Pankratz is the pastor of The Bridge Community in Centerville, Utah. Loren graduated from Chapman University with a double major in religion and philosophy. He went on to earn a master’s of divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary and a doctorate of ministry from Talbot School of Theology.
