The Five Solas of the Reformation

Soli Deo Gloria


Romans 11:36   For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.


  1. Glory Defined


     What is “glory”


               Ps 19     


The honor DUE a person


               Psalm 29:2 


  1. Glory Misaligned


     But this one… God’s glory in salvation and all things reflected them all


               Sola Scripture – Infallible church has a fallible Bible

               Sola Fide – the gift of God needs the work of man

               Sola gratia – the grace of God become the merit of man

               Sola Christus – the Son of God needs help of man


  1. Glory Realigned


     Luther’s study of scripture once again…


               Rom 11:33-36

               Eph 3:21

               1 Peter 4:11

               2 Peter 3:18

               Rev 4:11 & 7:12


      The Solas were meant to restore the glory to God


Scripture alone -                not                        but                                       to

               Faith alone –        not                        but                                       to

Grace alone –                     not                        but                                        to  

               Christ alone –      not                        but                                       to


               Heb 1:3


     And Luther saw that all of life was to…                  not just…


               1 Cor 10:31
