Bible Text: Romans 4:1-8 |


In commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, this sermon looks at one of the cardinal doctrines rediscovered by the reformers - the doctrine of justification by faith in Christ alone - and places what the scriptures teach and the reformers reclaimed alongside the understanding of justification which was held by the Roman Catholic Church of the 16th century. The comparison is helpful and enlightening for all believers, draws a sharp but fair contrast between the two positions and shows from scripture the implications of each. From the message it is made clear which understanding is good news and which understanding leads to bondage and uncertainty regarding one’s standing before a holy God.
