On tonight’s programme we look at the doctrine of Justification. Why is it important? What are the consequences of its neglect? What does the Church of Rome teach on Justification as revealed in the Council of Trent? What are the modern threats to the doctrine found within professing Reformed churches?
Recently the WCRC, a worldwide coalition of so-called ‘Reformed churches’, signed an agreement with Roman Catholicism over the doctrine of justification. The agreement describes a ‘common understanding’ over the doctrine. What are the tactics often used by ecumenists, knowingly or unknowingly, to lower the defences of their critics? Has Rome changed? Has she compromised what the council of Trent and the Catholic Cathechism teaches? What does the agreement teach? What is the doctrine of justification as stated in the Bible? How important is it?
On today’s programme we are joined by John J. Murray, a retired Minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ who serves in the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing) in the Glasgow area. He also worked as an assistant editor of the Banner of Truth Trust for 13 years and he continues to write articles on the Trust’s website. On today’s programme we look at his latest popular booklet called “The Dog That Does Not Bark: A Heart Cry for Leadership in the Church Today.” How should we deal with error in the Church? What difference can godly men make? What comfort and encouragement can be taken from examples found in Church history and the Bible itself?
