The Five Solas of the Reformation

#2 - Sola Fide


We Are Saved By Faith Alone, But Not by a Faith that is alone 


  1. Faith Is Not Enough

               Rome said:  Faith + Works = Justification

               The Roman def of Faith not enough


Faith needs help – WORKS


               James 2:24  


Is our model Rome’s Abraham or Hosea’s  Gomer


               Hosea 1:1 & 3


  1. Faith Is Enough


               Luther ‘s reading of  Romans 1:17 before the Tower


               Luther Answer to Rome – Faith = Justification + Works


                              Romans 3:27-28 5:16-18


                              Gal 2:16 &  3:10-11


               Luther and James –  


                              Matthew 11:19  


               Faith =  


  1. Faith is Too Much


               The Confusing Landscape we live on….

               They say -  Faith is Necessary - All are Justified



 Our cry as Reformation Christians 


Galatians 2:20   I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
