Five Solas of the Reformation
We’re excited to remember how God has providentially preserved his truth throughout the history of the Church. In October of 1517 a German monk nailed his 95 Theses to the Wittenberg door to express his intent to debate the heresies of the Roman Church. Martin Luther, along with many other men and women in Europe soon were used by God to bring back orthodox biblical doctrine to the Church. And this is something that we who follow in their Protestant lines still enjoy today.
This series addresses the “Five Solas” of the Reformation: Sola Scriptura (Scripture Alone), Sola Fide (Faith Alone), Sola Gratia (Grace Alone), Sola Christus (Christ Alone), and Soli Deo Gloria (To the Glory of God Alone).
Ephesians 2:1-10by Alan Sherban
New life, faith, justification, and the whole of our salvation is completely a work of God's grace alone. The purpose of this is so that we might not boast, but might instead be to the praise of his glory.
Romans 4by Alan Sherban
Justification refers to God considering a sinner to be fit for fellowship with him, and he grants this status solely upon the basis of the person and work of Christ, through the means of faith alone apart from any human work at all.
Romans 10:17by Alan Sherban
The Bible and the Bible alone is the sole authority for all matters concerning the souls of mankind and the Church of Christ. We know this perhaps most vividly from the fact that by no other means can we be saved than through the Word of Christ.
