The Bible disagrees, but I shall not here bother to argue with someone whose main motivation is to hear their own words and admire them.
Grace isn't a lifeline or rope that is thrown. It is not the means by which we are saved.Grace I believe is both the How and the Why...it is in fact the All in All!
"Grace" is the answer to WHY we are saved, not HOW we are saved.
How are we saved? through faith on Jesus
Why are we saved? His grace
Jesus being the Full Expression of Grace and God's Grace Given to Us is both The How and Why we are Saved
And indeed you should not desire to argue in the first place as it should also be above a moderator's position to demonstrate complete intolerance of an opposing viewpoint.
Jesus who's name means God Saves, specifically Yeshua Saves is the Grace of God given us
God so loved the World He GAVE US JESUS ...see John 3:16
The Law was given to Moses ( God gave Him the Law to give to the Jews )
Grace and Truth came BY or THROUGH Jesus ( see John 1:17 )
I'm sure you see the difference
Simply put....Jesus was the means by which God showed His Grace toward mankind
We see that in Luke 2:14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
Good will IS favor, favor IS Grace!
On the event of Jesus Birth God filled the sky with angels to announce the ARRIVAL OF HIS GRACE TOWARD MANKIND
The name John also means Grace
John whom called himself the Beloved or the Disciple whom Jesus Loved also stated the following
New American Standard Bible (©1995)For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace.
King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace
Going full circle GRACE APPEARED WHEN JESUS CAMEFor the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.Titus 2:11
Jesus is our Grace
Our Grace, Our Favor with God is in fact JESUS!
NOW....the choice is before you,
You can sit back and admire your words or you can admire God's Word for what it says
You can show in God's Word why my understanding of God's Word is in error or askew if in fact you believe it is
