It's time to derive your worldview from the Bible

Rather than reading the Bible through the eyes of modern secularism, this provocative six-part course teaches you to read the Bible through its own eyes—as a record of God’s dealing with the human race. When you read it at this level, you will discover reasons to worship God in areas of life you probably never before associated with “religion.”

The doctrine of justification. In paganism, man invents truth. In biblical Christianity, man discovers truth. Gospel preaching is not an impudent, superficial act; it is the powerful call of God that creates the elect in human history. Man must be credited with a perfect righteousness that he does not generate. Justification is due to righteousness outside of man: the imputed righteousness of Christ. The Cross was the greatest act of obedience. The Protestant view of justification, contrasted with the Roman Catholic view. The whole point of justification is that the believer’s relationship with God is permanently fixed. [Brief technical difficulties begin around the 43:00 minute mark and last for a couple minutes] Questions and answers.

What is the content of “saving faith?” The motive for Christian sanctification must be gratitude for what God has already done for you.
