"Our Righteousness Before God...Is Revealed in the Gospel. On this Righteousness Faith Relies."

 

Part I: Why Objective Justification Mattered to the Reformers

 

Part II: Why Objective Justification Matters to Us

 

 

The title is a direct quotation from FC SD III:57.

 

Part I will deal with the patristic evidence and with the issues of the Reformation.

 

Part II will deal with the issues of the Synodical Conference conflict with synergists and pietists, and with today's issues.

 

Objective justification is important in counteracting the postmodern assumption that there is no objective truth either behind, or in, the message of Christ.
