    How Are Men Justified – Works Or Atonement – Spiritual Reading

    How Are Men Justified – Works Or Atonement – Spiritual Reading. In general there are two opposing views of justification: one that men are justified by their own works, i.e., on the ground of something which they do themselves. This view may be variously expressed. The good works that men speak of as a ground of their justification may be their good moral conduct, or their keeping the Golden Rule, or something of that sort. Or they may be works of religion, such as doing penance, saying prayers, joining the church, going to church, being baptised, or partaking of the Lord’s Supper, or the performance of some other religious duties.…

    What Is Justification By Faith – Spiritual Reading

    What Is Justification By Faith – Spiritual Reading. The first thing for us to understand clearly is what justification is. It is at this point that many go astray in their study of this great truth. There are two fundamentally different definitions of the meaning of the words “justify” and “justification.” The one definition of Justify is, to make righteous, and of Justification, the being made righteous. The other definition of “justify” is, to reckon, declare, or show to be righteous, and of “justification,” the being declared or reckoned righteous. On these two different definitions two different schools of thought depart from one another. Which is the true definition? The way to settle the…

    What Is The Extent Of Justification In Jesus Christ – Spiritual Reading. To what extent is a man who believes in the Lord Jesus justified? This question is very plainly answered and wonderfully answered, and gloriously answered in Acts 13:38, 39, “Be it known unto you therefore, brethren, that through this man is proclaimed unto you remission of sins: and by him every one that believeth is justified from all things, from which he could not be justified by the law of Moses.”  These words very plainly declare to us that every believer in Jesus Christ is justified “from all things.” In other words, the old account against the believer is all…

    At What Time Is A Believer And Christian Justified – Spiritual Reading

    At What Time Is A Believer And Christian Justified – Spiritual Reading. The Time Of Justification: When is a believer justified? This question is answered plainly in one of our texts, Acts 13:39, “And by him every one that believeth is justified from all things, from which he could not be justified by the law of Moses.” What I wish you to notice particularly now in this verse is the word Is, “Everyone that believeth is justified from all things.” This answers plainly the question as to when a believer is justified.

    How Does God Justify The Ungodly And The Unrighteousness – Spiritual Reading

    How Does God Justify The Ungodly And The Unrighteousness – Spiritual Reading. You will find the text in the Epistle to the Romans, in the fourth chapter and the fifth verse:To him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. I call your attention to those words, “Him that justifieth the ungodly.” They seem to me to be very wonderful words. Are you not surprised that there should be such an expression as that in the Bible, “That justifieth the ungodly?” I have heard that men that hate the doctrines of the cross bring it as a charge against God, that…

Here we are met with a full answer in the words of Paul, in Romans 3:21-26. We will read six verses from the chapter so as to get the run of the passage: “But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ…
