I'm a programmer by day and a genealogist by night, but mostly I'm a husband and father. I'm also a Mormon.

comment When did knowledge of Christ's sacrifice become necessary for salvation?
I think people are struggling with your question because of a false, hidden premise: that the requirements for salvation changed when Christ died. Knowledge of Christ's sacrifice has always been necessary for salvation. The requirements for salvation have never changed.

comment Is it easy to live a Christian life?
I really like how you make a distinction between our interactions with God and our interactions with the world. I hesitate to accept your answer because being Christian hasn't made my life hard. Perhaps I've been lucky. But I don't doubt that moving to the Middle East would bring on a lot of persecution. I just can't accept a blanket statement if it doesn't apply to me.

comment Distributism and Subsidiarity beyond the counsel of Jethro in the Bible
The seventy spoken of in the NT seem to fulfill a similar purpose for the apostles.

That was actually the point of my answer, to explain a situation when there would be a link. I'll reword it.

comment Is the “sinner's prayer” important for salvation and why?
"A prayer alone cannot save you. This would be considered working for your salvation." Wouldn't repentance be considered working for your salvation too?

comment What is the will of God?
Could you elaborate on your first sentence? It doesn't make much sense to me. You seem to be saying, "God's will depends on what your will is, but you can't know that personally."

comment What is God waiting for before He ends the world?
You should share some of the references from Revelations that discuss the events you mentioned.
