Sola Fide: The Righteousness of Faith


  • The Sola of Faith
  • The Stimuli of Faith
  • The Saboteur of Faith
  • The Seal of Faith

 Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. When you think of the doctrine justification through faith alone (Sola Fide) what comes to mind?
  2. If you have reservations about the doctrine of Sola Fide, what are they? What walls stand in your way from accepting such a notion?
  3. In Romans 4:1-5:1, how does Paul see Abraham's faith as being the same saving faith of Christians today?
  4. Recall the covenant ceremony from Genesis 15. What did the rite reveal about the Lord's commitment to keep his promise?
  5. What role does Christ play in justification by grace through faith alone?
  6. What is the Reformation affirmation "Sola Fide" seeking to communicate? In what ways does this impact our lives today?

 Memory Verse: Romans 5:1 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. (ESV)
