2 nephi 25:23 "by grace that we are saved, after all we can do"
how much is all you can do? all you are able?
If all you are able to do is correct... what is all you are able to do?
from a logical standpoint every human is perfectly able to keep all of the commandments, but noone is perfect outside of christ.
It is possible to keep all the commandments, rather mankind does not want to keep them. Mankind would rather do what we want, when we want to. You can be, but are not perfect.
from LDS scriptural standpoint:
7 And it came to pass that I, Nephi, said unto my father: I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded,
"for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them."
in light of this, how come your not perfect?
32 Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall DENY YOURSELVES OF ALL UNGODLINESS, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, THEN IS HIS GRACE SUFFICIENT FOR YOU, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God.
33 And again, if ye BY THE GRACE OF GOD BE PERFECT IN CHRIST, and deny not his power, THEN ARE YOU SANCTIFIED IN CHRIST by the grace of God, through the shedding of the blood of Christ, which is in the covenant of the Father unto the remission of your sins, THAT YE BECOME HOLY AND WITHOUT SPOT.
If you are not perfect, or perfect in christ, why were you baptized? :
2 Neither did they receive any unto baptism save they came forth with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, and witnessed unto the church that THEY TRULY REPENTED OF ALL THEIR SINS.
What does it mean to truly repent of all of your sins?

This is simply for Christians to share and discuss the prophecies they may know well, and/or better than some of the rest of us. It is for edifying and educating each of us further in understanding our God's Word. Though I posted it for prophecies, I think it would do us well to share scriptures in...
