jesus why was i taught to do this

Why I tell Mormons about the true Jesus:

They’re taught this:

We are commanded to be supermen. Said the lord, ‘Be ye therefore perfect, even as your father which is in heaven is perfect.’ (Matt. 5:48.) We are gods in embryo, and the Lord demands perfection of us.

-The Miracle of Forgiveness, pg. 286

And the Bible teaches this:

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

-Ephesians 2:8-9
