TOPIC: Reformation Revisited: Why Die Over the Doctrine of Justification?

Guest: Troy Dobbs, senior pastor, Grace Church, Eden Prairie, MN

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God. Romans 5:1-2

This year marks the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation, an era that reformed the Christian faith and changed the world. It started on October 31, 1517 when German theologian Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses on the door at Wittenberg Castle church, protesting the abuses and errant doctrines of the dominant Roman Catholic Church.

Along with the debate over authority—Scripture v. the Roman Catholic Church—the debate over how one is justified (i.e. declared righteous by God) was a major flashpoint. Some Reformers were martyred for their belief that justification was by faith alone in Christ alone by God’s grace alone and not by faith PLUS keeping the sacraments of the Roman Catholic Church, particularly baptism.

This weekend on The Christian Worldview, Troy Dobbs, senior pastor of Grace Church in Eden Prairie, MN and a keynote speaker at our Fall Conference on Sept. 15-16, joins us to discuss the Reformation, the critical doctrine of justification, and why all of this is just as relevant today.
