Justification Rediscovered: Definition

Speaker: Scott Jarrett | May 16, 2012

One of the biggest myths within Evangelical Christianity today, is the belief that Protestants have always agreed on the definition of Justification. This is not the case now, and it was also not true for the Protestant Reformers. “I cannot regard Zwingli or any of his teachings as Christian at all. He neither holds nor teaches any part of the Christian faith rightly, and is seven times more dangerous than when he was a papist.” – Martin Luther This included even Zwingli’s teaching (or definition) on Justification. That being said, it would nonetheless be untrue and completely inaccurate to think that such diversity means that one definition has not risen to a level of popularity within Protestant Christianity far above all others.
