I dont know if it is so simple.
I presuppose the centrality of Grace, yes.
I believe however that how I choose to respond to that Grace is important, and that according to Matthew 25, Jesus suggests that when we respond in love to those around us, whether we know it or not, we respond in love to God.
In Matthew 25, which is the parable of the Last Judgment, the litmus test for the quality of ones future, is not assent to particular propositional statements but rather how we lived.
I tend not to view discussion forums as good venues for discussion (irony, i suppose) but if anyone want to offer me their thoughts, I am happy to listen. Private message me though okay?
