Solus Christus

13 For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. 18 He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything. Colossians 1:13-18 (NASB) 

As we have seen, Sola Scriptura is essential to genuine Christianity. Sacred Scripture is supreme and authoritative over the Church. It is the only ultimate and infallible authority for faith and practice….

From Sola Scriptura flows Sola Graita, Sola Fide, Solus Christus, and Soli Deo Gloria. The individual Solas cannot stand apart from the others. From them we state, From Scripture we learn that our salvation if by Grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone for the glory of God alone. For instance, if someone says that they reject parts of this and simply want Jesus they are violating this and are out of balance theologically. This leads to all sorts of unbiblical behavior in the name of Christ.

I am currently a member of a SBC church. We are not part of the current Social Justice, Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality controversies. Our focus is on reaching our city and surrounding area with the Gospel. Since the COVID-19 “crisis” and us not being able to meet in our church facilities nor have small group meetings in our homes, etc., we have adapted in a way that has had some very surprising results. We are meeting online both in our weekly church services and our small groups. The only “service” that is being carried out in the auditorium is baptisms. They are taped and then shown during the Sunday morning service. However, the surprising results are that we have had a lot of baptisms and we have learned that people from all over the world are watching our services. When darkness descends upon the earth, God uses that to draw souls into the light. What we are doing has very little to do with denominations. That being said, why do we have all of these different denominations? Why are there all these one-off churches out there? Is not the Gospel that Paul preached very clear? View article →
