We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.

LDS, A of F 1:3

Those who join the Mormon church are not set free in Christ but introduced to a whole new set of laws and ordinances through which they prove their faith and earn their salvation. The imposibility of keeping all the commandments, especially in their own strength, imposes an increasing burden of guilt, unworthiness and condemnation.
