Justified by Faith Alone Jun 13, 2007
Great book. Everyone should read to understand justification by faith alone.
Excellent source of information on this topic Jun 18, 2002
There is probably no other resource on the topic of Justification that says so much in so few pages. I admit that this was a tough read at times but the information in here is right to the point. It points out the differences between Roman Catholic justification and Evangelical justification in a well thought out and well reasoned way.
I highly recommend it.
Razor Sharp on Justification by Faith Aug 10, 2000
There are some, perhaps many, in our day who think there is a possibility of evangelical churches and the church of Rome being united one day. They believe that perhaps the differences between them are not as great as they have been in the past. This booklet by R.C.Sproul would be a strong corrective to any whose thinking is along those lines. The way a person is justified is the most important doctrine related to a person's salvation. Mr. Sproul highlights one of the most significant differences between the evangelical understanding of justification and the church of Rome's teaching on justification on pages 12-13."Justification refers to a legal action by God by which he declares a person just in his sight. ... Catholics agree that justification occurs when God declares a person just. However,when evangelicals speak of forensic justification,...what is tacit is the assumption that God declares people to be just who in themselves are not just. Rome teaches that God declares people to be just only when they are in fact just." The Evangelicals insist upon the ground of a person's justification being the righteousness of Christ alone(based upon His perfect obedience to the law of God)whereas the Roman Catholic Church teaches that the ground of a person's justification is the work of Christ plus the work of the believer. Until there is agreement here there can never be reconcilliation that would be Biblically based. Another very helpful feature of this booklet is the concise chart on pages 46-47 which detail the significant differences(consisting of 11 points), between the Reformation view and the Church of Rome's view on justification by faith. This booklet is short but very helpful and concise on this vital issue.
