Sola Fide

October 30, 2011 Speaker: John Bell Series: Reformation Sunday

Passage: Romans 4:1–4:8

Point # 1 Faith excludes boasting (verses 1-2)
 
Point # 2 Faith is necessary to preserve grace (verses 3-8)
 
Justification: The means by which a guilty sinner is reconciled to a holy God. Justification is the opposite of condemnation.
 
Justification consists of two parts:
a)    The forgiveness of sin.
b)    The imputation of Jesus' righteousness to the sinner.
 
Synergism – the (false) view that God and humans work together, each contributing their part to accomplish salvation in and for the individual.
