Saved by Works (something we can all believe in)

30 Jul

I read this quote last week in Dave Harvey’s Rescuing Ambition. It’s an R.C. Sproul quote and it reminded me of something Bob Letham said during a redemption lecture. (In fact this is almost exactly what Dr. Bob said)…enjoy:

The only way anyone can ever be saved is by works.

Shocked? Then let him finish…:

God requires that His law be fulfilled. And unless you posses perfect righteousness, you will never be justified. Now the issue is this: By whose works will you be justified? Justification by faith alone means we’re justified by the works of Christ alone.

Sweet.

    Love it. :OP
    (And having read it in full…no need for me to rant on Galatians)
