Wilhelmus à Brakel On Justification

He who errs in this doctrine errs to his eternal destruction. The devil is therefore continually engaged in denying, perverting, and obscuring the truth expressed in this chapter and, if he does not accomplish this, to prevent exercise concerning this truth. When new errors appear on the horizon, even when they initially do not pertain to justification at all, they in time will eventually culminate in affecting this doctrine. One must therefore be all the more earnest to properly understand, defend, and meditate upon this doctrine.

  1. This is so true! Like Bunyan’s pilgrim, Christians are on a quest for the Celestial city, always threatened by distractions that would prevent their grasp on this heavenly scroll, which is the gospel doctrine of salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.
