114 All About Justification

In Episode 114, we go deeper into one of scripture's core doctrines, justification. The definition of justified is "declared or considered as righteous." For a Christian, justification is God's act of forgiving the believer's sins and inferring Christ's righteousness to him.

There is only one theological system in which the notion of justification by grace through faith is taught in the Bible. As a result of our trust in Jesus Christ, only by returning to Scripture can we see that justification is based only on faith and not on our deeds.

Tune in now and let's go bigger, better, and deeper!
