      >>Hey Nick! I'd like you to define what you mean by "grace".

      ................................................................................................

      Using the Gospel of Thomas sayings:

       

      Grace =  (62) Jesus said: I speak my mysteries to those [who are worthy of my] mysteries.

       

      >> Given that salvation goes to the "spiritual" it seems to me that nothing can be more spiritual than babies and so they, certainly, would be saved. Hence salvation cannot be through one's 'efforts.'

       

      Now that's where the debate comes in for:

      Effort = (58) Jesus said, "Blessed is the person who has labored and found life."

      Hey Nick!

      >>>I think an interesting idea would be is salvation by 'Grace' or through one's 'efforts.'<<<

      I'd like you to define what you mean by "grace".

      Given that salvation goes to the "spiritual" it seems to me that nothing can be more spiritual than babies and so they, certainly, would be saved. Hence salvation cannot be through one's 'efforts.'
