LOVE CONSIDERED AS THE FORMAL CAUSE OF JUSTIFICATION. T HAVE hitherto been employed upon a view of justi- -- fication which happens to be very extensively professed in our Church at this day, either systematically or not; and has great influence, as a system, in consequence of the many religious men who hold it without system. I cannot for an instant believe that so many would adhere to it, if they understood what it really means when brought out as distinct from other views on the subject, and made consistent with itself. They profess it, because it is what is put into their hands, and they graft it upon a temper of mind in many cases far higher and holier than it. Now I come to consider the opposite scheme of doctrine, which is not unsound or dangerous in itself, but in a certain degree incomplete,truth, but not the whole truth; viz., that justification consists in love, or sanctity, or obedience, or " renewal of the Holy Ghost."1 In describing it then, I am describing not a perversion,but what Saints and Martyrs have in substance held in every age, though not apart from other truths which serve to repress those tendencies to error, which it, in common with every other separate portion of the Scripture creed, contains, not in itself, but when exclusively cherished by the human mind. But in the Eoman schools, it has often been thus detached and isolated ;1 to use the technical language which even the Council of Trent has adopted, spiritual renewal is said to be the " unica formalis causa," the one and only true description of justification ; and this seems to be the critical difference between those schools and such divines, whether of the Ancient Church or our own, as seem most nearly to agree with them.Now, however, to describe it in itself,that is, s...

Reviews - What do customers think about Lectures on the Doctrine of Justification?

Our Justification is our Righteousness  May 11, 2004
Readers already familiar with the eloquent and perspicacious Newman will not be disappointed by this critically important document -- a meditation of the doctrine of justification that ultimately caused him to abandon all hope of reconciling Luther's interpretation with the Roman Catholic interpretation. In this analysis, Newman contributes his own understanding to the debate and decides Luther not only got it wrong, he got it wrong on all points.

One of his excellent tactics is to take the evangelical view on its own basis, the Bible alone, and he demonstrates from the psalmists, prophets, apostles, and evangelists that the "justification" and "righteousness" are used interchangeably throughout salvation history. The bottom line is that we are all called to righteousness , and our justification is a Pauline spin on how we achieve this righteousness. Not by faith alone, as most Protestants claim, but by our total obedience to the Law made manifest in the Gospel and epistles, which means by the works of our faith.

To simplify Newman's elegant and eloquent argument, being justified is being righteous, and being righteous is being in a state of grace that is imprinted in our very being -- not imputed onto us, as Luther advocates . God has given us the faith necessary to believe and the grace to act upon it. The more we abide in obedience to God's will for us, the more our justification (righteousness) becomes our sanctification (blessedness). Newman obviously takes the catholic view of salvation, wherein the one who is saved is justified, the one justified is made righteous, the one made righteous is sanctified, and the one sanctified enteres into blessedness.

This book is for all students studying the question of the Justification by Faith, especially by faith "alone." Newman is a seminal thinker who has been highly influential in raising the issue within the Latin Church, and did much to help reconcile the differences between Lutheran and Catholic doctrine. Once again, John Henry Newman has proven himself a consummate twentieth-century theologican from the preceding century.
