Grace Alone

Grace Alone

Historians and theologians alike have long recognized that at the heart
of the sixteenth-century Protestant Reformation were the five solas: sola
scriptura, solus Christus, sola gratia, sola fide, and soli Deo gloria. These
five solas do not merely summarize what the Reformation was all about but have
served to distinguish Protestantism ever since. They set Protestants apart in a
unique way as those who place ultimate and final authority in the Scriptures,
acknowledge the work of Christ alone as sufficient for redemption, recognize
that salvation is by grace alone through faith alone, and seek to not only give
God all of the glory but to do all things vocationally for his glory.

2017 will mark the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. And yet, even
in the twenty-first century we need the Reformation more than ever. As James
Montgomery Boice said not long ago, while the Puritans sought to carry on the
Reformation, today we barely have one to carry on, and many have even " forgotten what that great spiritual revolution was all about. Therefore, " we need to go back and start again at the very beginning. We need " another Reformation.[1] In short, it is crucial not only to remember " what the solas of the Reformation were all about, but also to apply these solas
in a fresh way in light of many contemporary challenges.
