What are the three Solas of the Reformation?
Most members of our churches – and perhaps not a few pastors – would be hard-pressed to name the “three solas” identified with the Reformation. They are sola scriptura, sola gratia and sola fide, that is, scripture alone, by grace alone, through faith alone.
Is Sola Scriptura self refuting?
Some evangelical and Baptist denominations state the doctrine of sola scriptura more strongly: scripture is self-authenticating, clear (perspicuous) to the rational reader, its own interpreter (“Scripture interprets Scripture”), and sufficient of itself to be the final authority of Christian doctrine.
What is grace and why is it important?
In the definition of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, “grace is favour, the free and undeserved help that God gives us to respond to his call to become children of God, adoptive sons, partakers of the divine nature and of eternal life”.
What does the doctrine of justification by faith alone mean?
the sinner is justified by faith alone, meaning that nothing else is required to cooperate in order to obtain the grace of justification, and that it is not in any way necessary that he be prepared and disposed by the action of his own will (canon 9);
Is sanctification a process?
Sanctification is the Holy Spirit’s work of making us holy. When the Holy Spirit creates faith in us, he renews in us the image of God so that through his power we produce good works. Sanctification flows from justification. It is an on-going process which will not be complete or reach perfection in this life.
Is salvation a process?
Salvation, according to most denominations, is believed to be a process that begins when a person first becomes a Christian, continues through that person’s life, and is completed when they stand before Christ in judgment.
Are salvation and justification the same?
The Orthodox see salvation as a process of theosis, in which the individual is united to Christ and the life of Christ is reproduced within him. Justification is a word used in the Scriptures to mean that in Christ we are forgiven and actually made righteous in our living.
