One Response to Justin Welby: Luther’s historic act did so much to shape the world we live in – Evening Standard

    The key truths about salvation are about Original Sin, Free Will, Predestination, Justification, Good Works, Sanctification and whether we look to the Bible alone for those truths or whether ‘Tradition and scripture together form a single sacred deposit of the word of God, entrusted to the church’ (Dogmatic constitution on divine revelation, Second Vatican Council), and who has authority to decide what is the truth about these vital matters.
    As I see it, the differences between the Reformed and Roman Catholic doctrines on these subjects are real and vital. That should not prevent Roman Catholics and Reformed Christians being on good terms with one another, but it does mean that these fundamental differences in belief should be honestly faced and not glossed over.
    These things really matter: they concern what God is like and whether we are saved from the wrath and condemnation of God or whether we are not.
