Justified by Faith Alone

Crossway, 1.4.2010 - 64 sivua

Luther said that the doctrine of justification by faith alone is "the article upon which the church stands or falls." R. C. Sproul follows Luther's lead in his concise and compelling work, now repackaged and republished. Justified by Faith Alone surveys the main tenets of the doctrine of justification in Roman Catholicism and evangelicalism. Sproul is careful to accurately represent Catholic beliefs and observes that while both traditions agree that faith is necessary for justification, the difference lies in whether faith alone is sufficient. He explores problems with the Catholic doctrine and champions the sole sufficiency of Christ for our salvation.

Effective and engaging, Sproul does not shy away from difficult theological terms and ideas, but capably guides readers through this famous doctrinal dispute. To those who decry the doctrines of imputation and justification by faith alone as "legal fiction," Sproul warns that nothing less than the central message of the gospel is at stake.

Sivu 17 - Apostle says that man is justified by faith and freely,** these words are to be understood in that sense in which the uninterrupted unanimity of the Catholic Church has held and expressed them, namely, that we are therefore said to be justified by faith, because faith is the beginning of human salvation, the foundation and root of all justification, without which it is impossible to please God...
Sivu 36 - However, to the man who does not work but trusts God who justifies the wicked, his faith is credited as righteousness.
Sivu 38 - God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished — he did it to demonstrate his justice at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.
Sivu 18 - ... in this case faith is not lost; thus defending the teaching of the divine law which excludes from the kingdom of God not only unbelievers, but also the faithful [who are] fornicators, adulterers, effeminate.
Sivu 22 - Those who through sin have forfeited the received grace of justification can again be justified when, moved by God, they exert themselves to obtain 60.
Sivu 23 - God is first on his own initiative, 155 and then follows man's free acting through his collaboration, so 970 that the merit of good works is to be attributed in the first place to the grace of God, then to the faithful. Man's merit, moreover...
Sivu 21 - ... Thus, neither our own proper righteousness is so determined to be our own, as if it were from ourselves; nor is the righteousness of GOD either unknown or rejected. For that which is called our righteousness, because, through it being inherent in us, we are justified ; that same is the righteousness of GOD, because it is infused into us by GOD through the merit of CHRIST.
Sivu 20 - Judge, after he had fought his fight and finished his course; and not to him only, but to all them also that love his coming. (2 Tim. iv. 7, 8.) And seeing that Christ Jesus imparts energy to the justified, as the head to the members, and the vine to the branches; which energy always precedes, accompanies, and follows their good works, and without which they could not be acceptable to God, nor meritorious; it must be believed that the justified are in no respect deficient, but that they may be considered...
Sivu 18 - Against the subtle wits of some also, who by pleasing speeches and good words seduce the hearts of the innocent, it must be maintained that the grace of justification once received is lost not only by infidelity, whereby also faith itself is lost, but also by every other mortal sin...
Sivu 20 - God, we must believe that nothing further is wanting to those justified to prevent them from being considered to have, by those very works which have been done in God, fully satisfied the divine law according to the state of this life and to have truly merited eternal life, to be obtained in its [due] time...
