Our Righteousness before God
December 23, 2015
The theme of the 2015 Emmaus Conference proved a timely topic. “Our Righteousness Before God…Is Revealed in the Gospel. On this Righteousness Faith Relies.”
The lecture was given by the Reverend David Jay Webber in two parts.
- 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 dealt with the patristic evidence and with the issues of the Reformation. Part II dealt 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.
