In Christ Alone
Each week one of our Research Assistants will be offering their reflections on the pieces that we have recently posted as part of the 500 Project. This piece comes from Joey Robinson.
The Reformation is yet to find its way to the heart of many people on earth and yet it is what many people are searching for.
The essence of the Reformation is that ordinary people would find purpose, be empowered by the word of God, and live a life according to His will. However, vast numbers of people are searching for answers and purpose in temporary satisfaction which only breeds discontentment.
This week, Rev Norman McAuley analyses the Five Solas which were designed to counter the direction of the Roman Catholic Church, and manifest as positive biblical declarations as part of the Reformation. The Five Solas affirm that God’s Word teaches us that we are saved by His grace alone. Christ in His death, has forgiven us for our sin, enabling us to live a life of faith that will being glory to God. Through these declarations we find identity in who we are, and who we belong to, as well as purpose for the life we are to live.
“We have entered a new post-Christian era in Europe, where truth is relative and experience definitive.”
