The Faith of Jesus: Against the Faithless Lutherans
I would appreciate comments on this list of quotations about justification by faith. You may find typos or repeated quotations. You may wish to have something included that is not there. Control-f is a good way to find individual words.
Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.

"Scripture therefore uses these words, 'We are justified by faith,' to teach both: 1) What the reason (or merit) for justification is, or what the blessings of Christ are; to wit, that through and for the sake of Christ alone we are granted forgiveness of sins, righteousness and eternal life; and 2. How these should be applied or transferred to us; namely, by embracing the promise and relying on Christ by faith alone."
