The Promise Cannot Be Received Unless By Faith -
Apology of the Augsburg Confession


"Now, that faith signifies, not only a knowledge of the history, but such faith as assents to the promise, Paul plainly testifies when he says, Romans 4:16: 'Therefore it is of faith, to the end the promise might be sure.' For he judges that the promise cannot be received unless by faith. Wherefore he puts them together as things that belong to one another, and connects promise and faith." Apology of the Augsburg Confession, Article IV, 50. Justification, Concordia Triglotta, St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1921, p. 135. Tappert, p. 114. Heiser, p. 36. Romans 4:16.
