In a recent article John Piper stated: “we should not speak of getting to heaven by faith alone in the same way we are justified by faith alone.” Has he compromised the gospel? Is it similar to the errors of Norman Shepherd? What did godly Reformed men of the past say on the error taught by Shepherd, and what should be the message to Piper and others like him today? What are the consequences of the Reformed community ignoring modern errors on justification by faith alone?
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?
Is Roman Catholicism another Christian denomination? Can we presume Roman Catholics are Christian? What is Mark Driscoll’s view of Roman Catholicism and Greek Orthodoxy? Can Driscoll be trusted?
What is the doctrine of perseverance of the saints? Is 5-point Arminianism Biblical? What are the consequences of a practical denial of the doctrine of justification? What is justification? Is Joe Schimmel’s gospel Biblical? Does Joe Schimmel’s gospel presentation agree more with Rome or the Reformation?
