Happy Reformation Sunday. Forget Halloween.
1. Sola Scriptura: Scripture alone is our ultimate authority
2. Sola Christus: Christ alone is our Savior and Lord.
3. Sola Gratia. Grace alone is the basis of our salvation
4. Sola Fides: Faith alone is the means of our salvation
5. Sola Deo Gloria: The glory of God alone is our ambition and passion.
In order to guard the Gospel, we must remember, believe, teach, and defend all five.
In light of this, let us ponder the words of Martin Luther before his accusers.
Unless convinced by the testimony of Scripture or right reason, for I trust neither the pope nor councils inasmuch as they have often erred and contradicted one another, I am bound by conscience, held captive by the Word of God in the Scriptures I have quoted. I neither can nor will recant anything, for it is neither right nor safe to act against conscience. God help me! Amen.
