What Were Some of the Key Doctrines That Resulted From the Reformation? - Paul Carrington
What were some of the key doctrines that resulted from the Reformation?
Paul Carrington explains in this video that the sufficiency of Scripture and the idea of God’s grace were two, key doctrines that came out of the Reformation. Man cannot do anything to assist to be brought into the right relationship with God. This was something that was unheard of. At that time, Christ was merely one means out of many to somehow "merit" salvation, which could be lost.
But Scripture makes it clear that salvation does not hinge on our efforts to make ourselves right with God. It is only through Jesus Christ that we can be made right through faith and repentance. The Reformation helped to correct false ideas and teachings and point individuals back to Scripture.
Ephesians 2:8-10 (NKJV) – “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”
