Go read! Armchair Theologian

“The claim of some is that you don’t find the teaching of Justification Sola Fide (Faith Alone) in the Church until the reformation. As before, it is not just Roman Catholics that assert this. So to put this accusation to rest I have assembled a sample of Patristic quotes below from the same source used in my prior post. . .

“. . .The point is this, Sola Fide can be demonstrated very easily in the writings of the early Church. The truth of the Reformation is not a truth added to Christianity but the very Gospel itself restored. Don’t let anyone tell you that Sola Fide is a new doctrine. . .”

Church Fathers on Sola Fide

  1. True, Maria. And that attitude of ignoring history opens up some people to the trappings of Catholicism. Rightly or wrongly, there are those who equate centuries-old historical moorings with credibility and authority but don’t see any of that in contemporary evangelicalism.

  2. Yes, after Christianity was adopted as the state religion and the church became increasingly institutionalized, doctrines were formulated with little or no Scriptural foundation. Who could say no? Mariolatry is a good example. If there is no rule of faith then human imagination is the limit.

  3. Maria, I’m very sorry to hear about your husband’s heart trouble and I will surely be praying for his procedures and recovery. Please keep us posted.
