Justification Defense

Justification by faith or justification by works? “Justification is a term that describes the event whereby persons are set or declared to be in right relation to god.” Justification by god is presented by Paul to be done only when you have faith and not because of your good deeds/works. On the other hand, James states that justification by god is done threw good works. Paul’s letter to the Romans in chapter 4 begins by referring to the Old Testament. The Old Testament taught the same message...

The Idea of Justification by Faith through Grace: Martin Luther King Jr.

Ch. 18 Question 2: What did Luther mean by justification by faith? How did he come to this idea? Martin Luther, a Protestant reformer and possibly one of the most influential theologians ever, developed the idea of justification by faith through grace. Martin Luther had been searching for salvation, but had no luck. He had become a monk in trying to guarantee his salvation. He seemed dedicated living his life as a monk, but the holy life of a monk did not bring him the assurance of salvation he...

Faith Without Works Is Dead

solely by the work of Christ after all?” To a Roman Catholic and to some Protestants, the answer to the last question would be that indeed works are essential to our being saved. To these souls, works enter into the act of justification, in that, part of the justification is God producing good works in us, so that we are justified by faith plus those works. The proponents of this position would quickly turn to James 2:14-17, “What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but...

Development of John Wesley's Theology

In seeking to reunite holiness and faith, Wesley says it is the “holiness without which no man shall see the Lord.” (From Heb. 12:14)-(Pg. 562.) In essence, Wesley is saying that holiness is a consequence of justification. This is in accordance with the defined goal of early Methodists: To reform the nation,...

Threat of Lutheranism to the Catholic Church

Peasants were meant to be peasants, and kings were meant to be kings. People were taught that trying to change their station in life was akin to rebelling against God and would surely warrant eternal damnation. When Luther began teaching the idea of “justification by faith alone,” it called this system into question. How would social mobility forfeit salvation if faith was all that was required to be saved? The teachings of Luther alarmed all political leaders, not just those affiliated with the Church,...

To Bonhoeffer, cheap grace is the denial of the living Word of God and the justification of sin without the justification of the sinner. He goes so far as to say, "Cheap grace is the preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance, baptism without church discipline, Communion without confession, absolution without personal confession" (p. 44)...
