But Mueller to St. Paul is 2000 years. Maybe God created and revealed a new dispensation in these 2000 years?
Let's rewind another 2000 years further and see how God's Word changed:
"And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness." Genesis 15:6
Oh, wait. Nevermind.

Thank you again for highlighting more Scripture which teaches that faith justifies. When I saw the Romans 5:1-2 Scripture highlighted, I was elated because the Scripture agrees [with] and correlates [well] with my Sunday's topical message [LOL]:
"Cheap Grace is a Worthless Substitute for a Faith That Saves:"
<<<<<<<<<< Luke 15 Cannot be a Favorite Chapter for the Cheap Grace (AKA, "Universal Objective Justification") Crowd:
This Gospel of Luke chapter 15:1f, is a testament to the error of cheap grace (which I believe) includes the whole "universal objective justification" teaching. The lost (prodigal) son was not forgiven (justified) until he became repentant. His act of coming to his [spiritual] senses was a gracious act of God.
In the Parable of the Lost Coin, the coin did not find itself. Neither did the prodigal son, "find himself." UOJ (universal objective justification) teachers and preachers gloss over the Biblical teaching of repentance on the sinner's part [Luke 15:7] and most often slight and / or ignore the Holy Spirit who works His saving process from start to finish in the individual. - John 3:1-21 ; Titus 3:5 ; Ephesians 2:8-10 ; John 1:12;13 ; 1 Corinthians 2:12 ; 1 Corinthians 6:11 ; 1 John 5:1
John 1:12-13 ; James 1:18 ; Matthew 16:17 ; Ephesians 2:4-5 ; Ephesians 2:8-10 ; 1 Peter 1:3 ; 1 Peter 1:23 ; Colossians 1:20-21 ; John 3:5-8 ; John 6:65 ; 2 Thessalonians 2:13-14 ; Romans 8:29-31 ; Romans 9:15-18 ; Titus 3:3-7 ; Philippians 2:13 ; 1 John 5:4 ; 1 Peter 1:5 ;Hebrews 2:3 >>>>>>>>>>>
