comment How does the LDS doctrine of assurance compare to the Methodist doctrine of assurance?
I would have to agree with @DaveDeLong. To say that Mormons believe salvation is earned by works seems like a misrepresentation of their beliefs. First, no large Christian religion could get away with that. Second, doing as many works as the Mormons talk about would take an extreme amount of faith. Third, the article you linked to acknowledges that we are saved by grace. The fact that they emphasize works more than most denominations does not equate to salvation by works.

comment According to Reformed Christianity, what is the meaning of “grace” (χάρις)?
@Zealumble Don't worry, we all have fallen into the same trap. Your question could easily be reopened if you edited it to specify a denomination. I suggest reading en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grace_(Christianity) to get started.

comment What is the difference between justification and sanctification?
Excellent delineation, but I worry that it may be too simple. This answer to another question suggests that sanctification has two meanings.

comment How does intercession of saints and Exodus 20:3 not clash?
@PeterTurner: There's nothing in the Bible that says we should interpret Christ's petition to John as applicable to us (and I admit there's nothing that says we shouldn't). Anything regarding this is pure speculation.
