Hutter Compend of Lutheran Doctrine - Based on the Confessions -
Not Halle University and Missouri Sex Cult




Hutter Compend - As Mentioned on SpenerQuest

Let's fact it - they do not read, do not study, and do not engage in critical thinking.

2. How do you define man's justification before
God?
Justification is a work of God, by which, out of
pure grace, or gratuitously, he releases from sin
the sinner who believes in Christ ; grants him
forgiveness of the same, and so imputes the righteousness
of Christ to him, that being most fully
reconciled and adopted as a son, he is freed from
the guilt and punishment of sin, and obtains eternal
blessedness.

4. In order to understand these things more fully I
desire to know what you consider the causes of our
justification ?
There are three causes of our justification : 1.
The grace of God; 2. The merit of Christ; 3.
Faith, which in the promise of the Gospel accepts
these divine blessings, {Form of Concord, Sol. Dec,
Art. iii, 25.)

12. What is justifying faith?
Justifying faith is not mere historical knowledge
of Christ; but it is a great gift of God, by
which, in the Gospel, we correctly recognize
Christ as our Redeemer, and trust in him, that
alone on account of his obedience, we obtain the
gratuitous forgiveness of sins, are considered holy
and righteous in the sight of God the Father, and
obtain eternal salvation. [Form of Concord., Epitome,
Art. iii, 6.)

17. Prove from Scripture that man is Justified by
faith ?
Eom. 3 : 28. We conclude that a man is justified by faith without
the deeds of the law.
Gal. 2 : 16. Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the
law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus
Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by
the works of the law.
Phil. 3 : 9, 10. And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness,
which is of the law, but that which is through faith; the
righteousness which is of God by faith, that I may know him and
the power of his resurrection.
Eph. 2 : 8, 9. For it is by grace are ye saved through faith ; and that
not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. Not of works, lest any man
should boast. {Apology, Art. ii.)
