๐Ÿ‘‘ Sola Fide

โ€œFor by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boastโ€ย (Ephesians 2:8,9).

Onย October 31, 2017, we Bible believers celebrate the 500thย anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation!

The third Reformation principle, โ€œsola fideโ€ (Latin, โ€œfaith aloneโ€), protests the well-known Roman Catholic mishandling of Jamesย 2:24. โ€œA man is justified by faith and worksโ€ is clearly written toย Israelย (chapter 1, verse 1). Following Godโ€™s instructions to others isย surelyย destructive. Lost people wake up in eternal hellfireย quoting Scripture (including Jamesย 2:24!).

In this the Dispensation of Godโ€™s Grace,ย salvation is by grace through faith plus nothing. Romans chapter 3:ย โ€œ[26] To declare, I say, at this time [Godโ€™s]ย righteousness: that he might be just, andย the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. [27] Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but byย the law of faith. [28] Therefore we conclude thatย a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.โ€

Our Apostle Paul (Romansย 11:13) continues in chapter 4:ย โ€œ[3] For what saith the scripture?ย [Sola Scriptura!]ย Abraham believed Godย [Sola Fide!], and it was counted unto him for righteousness. [4] Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of graceย [Sola Gratia!], but of debt. [5] But to him that worketh notย [Sola Fide!], but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodlyย [Sola Fide!], his faithย [Sola Fide!]ย is counted for righteousness.โ€Rather than having religious self-righteousness (Romans 10:1-3), remember that Heaven is gained byย faith alone in Christโ€™s righteousnessย alone!ย โ€œChrist died for our sins, He was buried, and He rose again the third dayโ€ย (1 Corinthians 15:3,4).

The Reformers, while lacking the more perfect Bible understanding we enjoy, nevertheless walked in the spiritual light they had. They understood justification by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone (Romans chapters 1-5). In the 500 years since, we have recovered the rest of the Book of Romans that religious tradition had stifled (chapters 6-16โ€”victorious Christian identity and living, differences between Israel and the Body of Christ, and grace principles for various life situations). Brethren, let us walk in the lightย weย have, further building on the Reformersโ€™ efforts! source

Verse for 2/21/2018

For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. — Romans 13:9-10
