Greetings,

“Beat it into their heads continually,” he said. To what did Martin Luther refer? Nothing less than “the doctrine upon which the church stands or falls,” sola fide, faith alone. Five hundred years after the Reformation, the church continues to stand on this faith, and it can deliver prisoners from works-based cults (see this video or this one).

David Platt writes, “Salvation by faith alone is the best news we could possibly hear or deliver. If we lose that, we lose everything. So let us rejoice in that salvation, and let sola fide ring out from our lips in the Church and among the lost until the day when such faith finally becomes sight.”

Without faith in Christ, where does one look for salvation? Read on. But be warned. This edition is a little odd.

blessings,
Pat
