Sola Fide - Justification by Faith Alone

“Wherefore it ought to be the first concern of every Christian to lay aside all confidence in works and grow in the knowledge, not of works, but of Christ Jesus, who suffered and rose for him.”    

-Martin Luther

“Now we shall possess a right definition of faith if we call it a firm and certain knowledge of God’s benevolence toward us, founded upon the truth of the freely given promise in Christ, both revealed to our minds and sealed upon our hearts through the Holy Spirit.”                                    

-John Calvin

1. The Foundational Issue of Justification

¨We must begin with a proper THEOLOGY & ANTHROPOLOGY

¨What is justification, and how does sinful man attain it?

¨Three key elements:

(1) Imputation

(2) Faith Alone Justifies

(3) Simul Iustus et Peccator

2. The Implication for our Lives

¨This doctrine is foundational in soteriology (the doctrine of salvation).

¨This doctrine is foundational in practical theology (living out our theology day to day).
