As we dive into our third part of our 500-year celebration of the 5 Solas of the Reformation we look at Solus Christus.
This month will see the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation culminating in Martin Luther’s nailing of his 95 Theses onto the door of the Wittenberg Church on October 31st. To help celebrate we are dedicating 5 episodes to the 5 Solas of the Reformation. The 5 Solas helped declare the basis of the Reformation’s core beliefs about salvation. They are:
- Sola Gratia (by Grace Alone)
- Sola Fide (through Faith Alone)
- Solus Christus (in Christ Alone)
- Sola Scriptura (according to Scripture Alone)
- Soli Deo Gloria (for God’s Glory Alone)
This is our 3rd week and therefore we are focused on Solus Christus… or Salvation is in Christ Alone. So why would Martin Luther and company have a need to express this? Aren’t all Christians looking to Christ as the basis for salvation? Tune in to find out why this is a crucial point in reforming the Christian church.
