Five Scriptural Truths That Changed the World:

Christ Alone

Text: Hebrews 1:1-4

“The summary of the Gospel is that our Lord Christ, true Son of God, has made known to us the will of the Heavenly Father and has redeemed us from death and reconciled us with God by His guiltlessness. Therefore, Christ is the only way to salvation of all who were, are now, or shall be.” (Huldrych Zwingli, Swiss Reformer)

We continue our study of the Reformation, focusing on Five Scriptural Truths that Changed the World. We have already examined Scripture Alone, Grace Alone and Faith Alone. The fourth Biblical truth that was the basis of the Protestant Reformation is Christ Alone (Sola Christus).  This is not a pithy slogan; it is the central focus of the gospel truth the Reformers rediscovered.  Christ Alone is founded on two Biblical realities: first, the exclusive identity of Christ; and second, the complete sufficiency of Christ’s work. The Reformation was established on the Biblical truth that Jesus Christ is fully divine and fully human. He is the divine Son who became a man in order to save us from our sins and reconcile us back to God. 

The Reformers presented the Lord Jesus Christ in all of His glory, splendor and majesty. Even though there are vast differences between the Reformation era and our day, the task is the same: “to be faithful to the Word of the Lord and the Lord of the Word...to continue to confess, defend and proclaim with the same vigor, confidence and conviction that our Lord Jesus Christ is the unique and exclusive Lord and all-sufficient Savior. In a day of rampant pluralism, our voice must be clear and strong: Jesus Christ is Lord, and apart from faith alone in Christ alone there is no salvation.” (Stephen Wellum)
