Well naturally I believe that justification is by faith alone as I embraced Jesus as my Savior and I trust in Him alone for salvation. I sure don't trust in my Baptism as an infant, the Sacraments or the Catholic Church for salvation.

True, but that faith which justifies has a specific object in view.

Hi sister

"...made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus..."

Not only made us alive, but 'raised us up' also; lifted us out of the miry clay, out of an horrible pit, and put a song in our heart, even praise unto our God.

Raised with Christ, to sit with him, in a whole new world, a different sphere, a new medium, the spiritual life. Oh how the new convert floats in perfect joy! Such euphoria, such health despite ill-health, such peace in the midst of turmoil. A great thing to be in HIS hand!

Would anyone care to share some words with me about this passage. I'm working on a paper (ENG 109 jour)and need some quotes by people. Thanks

Yes I believe that justification is by faith alone in Jesus. Only someone who is mentally deranged, insane and psychotic would not believe that justification is by faith alone in Jesus.

God imputeth righteousness without works
This is one of the great and gracious mysteries of revelation. Man has no R of his own. The Lord Jesus comes into our world and produces one. The R of Jesus is infinitely meritorious. He wrought it out in our nature, as our Substitute. It was accepted for us and is placed to our account. Before we have done one good work, altogether irrespective of good works, the moment we believe, God places the R of Jesus to our account. It is ours, ours by free gift; as much ours as if we had wrought it ourselves. It is in this that we are justified. In this we are truly righteous; therefore we are accepted of God, and no charge lies against us in the book of God. All is met; all is answered. The just God acquits us from all charges, pronounces us righteous, declares us to be free from all condemnation. Thus, "Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth."

Beloved, when Satan tempts you, when fears distress you, when your past conduct generates despondency, when the claims of the law disturb you, endeavour to exercise faith in this glorious fact that God imputes R without works.

Jesus, how glorious is thy grace
When in thy name we trust
Our faith receives a righteousness
Which makes the sinner just.
JS Rom 4

For those interested in this vital doctrine, here is a book giving a sound Scriptural and Historical examination of the subject. It seems to be a doctrine which is overlooked by many preachers and distorted by others these days and yet it is so fundamental to Christianity. You can't have genuine Christianity without "justification by faith alone" and the church will quickly crumble under the burden of any other system of theology. When this doctrine is abandoned apostasy is the result. I think perhaps the poor state of the churches within our country are the direct result of the ignorance of this doctrine more than any other thing. The woman is always easy prey to the serpent when either confusion or indifference concerning the absolutes of truth are present.

We are justified by Christ's blood and death. God then imputes to us the righteousness of Christ. He declares us not guilty, as though sin had not been committed.

Faith is a result of my Justification; faith is a apart of my santification, what God is doing in me.
Faith is not the reason I get saved, but the result of me being saved by God.

If salvation is by grace "through faith" , then salvation must be received by faith. IOW faith preceeds (or must exist to receive) salvation, and is very much related to your "justification"!!

By faith alone. I cannot of my own strength be positionally righteous or transformed unto righteous works. This is only by the power of God through faith in His word. I believe we are justified by faith and from this faith flow good works.

I find no good thing in me that could remotely begin to justify me before an infinitely just and holy God.

Only faith (that is the gift of God).

I need you to clarify something here, if you would.
At the time that you wrote: "He gave me life." To what were you referring? I assumed that it was your natural, God-given, biological life. Did I assume correctly?
I came to my conclusion because in your next post on this thread (1/31/09 11:57 AM) you wrote:
"Proverbs 4:10
'Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.'
MORE YEARS that should be hated, I suppose?"
I'll repost what I later wrote to Apercu, which I hope will clarify:

As you have well said, "compared to heaven." And that is what is meant by hating your life. By comparison we "hate" our lives. But this does not mean the contemptuous, disdainful hatred which might be erroneously supposed.
We are commanded to love our wives. That exists in THIS life. We are commanded to love our brothers, also part of this life. Are we to hate life, but love that which God has given that makes it life? We need to keep in mind what is meant by hating our lives.

Proverbs 3:2
"For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee."

If we were to truly hate our life, you'd have to wonder why Solomon thought these were good things.

I really need to understand what you honestly MEANT by "He gave me life."

Please consider the CONTEXT
DJC49
No. It is you who should go back and consider the CONTEXT. APERCU maligned Mike from NY that he didn't hate the life that God had given him.

Mike NY wrote
"He gave me life. Why should I hate it?"

Dear DJC49 this is the CONTEXT not an eisigesis of John 12:25. BTW it is APERCU's version whatever it may be of Calvinism that is shameful or did you conviently overlook his statement to Mike from NY implying that Mike needed to be a Calvinist to have eternal life?

Apercu wrote:
"Now Mike you want to live eternally don't you?
OK
Become a Calvinist then."

DJC49, it this the kind of Calvinism that you believe in that one must be a Calvinist to live eternally?

I will ask you the same question I asked him. "What is the matter isn't faith in Jesus Christ sufficient for you?"

No, I am far from being an expert in calling people devils but thanks to Calvinists such as yourself and Apercu and others (thankfully not all Calvinists come across with the same attitudes and what I would call dictates) I have realized that with some they seemingly care less if one is genuinely born again and loves Christ but that they would be a proselyte of their version of WCF 5 Point Calvinism.
