    Some questions about your site. The Bible never says we are saved by faith alone and the phrase 'faith alone' occurs only once in James where it says that we are not saved by faith alone. So why do the Reformed Christians say we are justified by faith alone and not by works?

 
Reply:
    This is a well oiled myth, but certainly it is not true. There are plenty of Scriptures detailing how we are not justified or saved by works, but by faith. Justification and salvation by works or by keeping the law is constantly contrasted with faith apart or separated from works. That's why God's word says we are made righteous with God by faith without our own works. That means faith alone, not faith mixed with works.

Romans 3:28

  • "Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law."

Romans 4:4-5
  • "Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.

  • But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness."

Romans 11:6
  • "And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

Galatians 2:16
  • "nevertheless knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the Law but through faith in Christ Jesus, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we may be justified by faith in Christ, and not by the works of the Law; since by the works of the Law shall no flesh be justified."

Ephesians 2:8-9
  • "For 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."

The answer to your question of why Reformed Christians say we are justified by faith alone and not by works, is that this is what God's word clearly says.

    Hello Pastor Warren, Thank you for your precious Bible study ministry. I would love to keep studying your teaching on Revelation and to apply it to my own Bible study group. You have enlightened my understanding of his subject greatly. I believe your studies will give me a correct Christian foundation, and guide me to a better understanding. I'm now on your 2nd Thessalonians study.
Praise God for Jesus and the hope of salvation,
Amen.

    Gracious Brother,
I have been reading your articles with much interest and truly appreciate what you have written, but even more what you have thoroughly supported with Scripture. You have opened up a new way of Bible study for me. Sola Scriptura! Thanks so much.

I am an Independent Baptist in the southern part of country. This is one of the few remaining fascinating resources, and I do hope it doesn't get lost in all the irrelevant and man pleasing sites on the web. I just want to let you all know that I loved the article on the changing perspectives on homosexuality in the church. I also appreciate your stand against the errors of modernism, vain sentimentality and the abandonment of Godly morality. Your web site is very informative and I know your hard work and dedication to it will eventually pay off. God's Blessings.

    Great site dear soldiers. (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds II John10:4). We are certainly in a great battle to save the Holy Bible from modern corruption, and the believing world from judgment. I've often heard the great Dr. Alan Redpath teach on the need for sound preachers who honor and expound the word of God. I consider you guys as chief leaders in that regard, and look forward to more of same from the Mountain Retreat.

    Hello Mr. Warren,

Writing to tell you how much I liked your article here. http://www.mountainretreatorg.net/bible/stone.html

I came upon this article by searching “Jesus First Miracle”. I was searching because somehow it was pointed to me recently the significance of the Jewish ceremonial pots identified in The Gospel of John documenting Jesus first miracle. It’s clear to me that all world religions even Jewish tradition of cleansing is bankrupt and how marvelous the Wisdom of God was to use those ceremonial cleansing pots by filling them with the emblem of the Blood of Christ as the ONLY way to be clean before God. You put it much better in your article. I have read about that miracle for years and missed the significance and depth of Jesus at the wedding. Thank you very much for writing your wonderful article. I have sent it along to some missionary friends.

    Special greetings to Reformed Baptist who sent me a link to this website and brought these God authored doctrines to my attention. After reading much of what is here, I trust it will be an instrument to spread the true gospel message. Thanking God for the beautiful spiritual mountain retreat that you have provided to the glory of the Lord. My the Lord richly bless you in this outreach and I know that many precious souls have been educated in the true doctrines of grace for the Lord through this ministry.

    Thank you all kindly for addressing the questions of Christians who are wrestling with issues related to Reformed theology and evangelism. I had been previously misinformed on this issue mainly because I was listening to others who oppose the doctrine of election to define this theology and not going to the source. God knows it's always better to hear the doctrines from those who hold it, not those who oppose it. God bless this site and I pray he continues to equip us all to be worthy ambassadors of his calling.
