Do You Disagree with this….

“We are not justified by faith by believing in justification by faith. We are justified by faith by believing in the gospel itself – in other words, that Jesus is Lord and that God raised him from the dead”.

This quote is from N.T Wright. The latest issue of Tabletalk magazine has an article whereby R.C Sproul objects to this statement. Now, I have not read the article. I do not follow EVERYTHING N.T Wright teaches. I regard myself primarily in the reformed tradition theologically. But we need to stop this witch hunt against NT Wright. He does not have perfect theology. None of us do. There is MUCH in NT Wright’s works which have been a valuable addition to the body of Christ. There has been much written in objection to Wright’s views in Justification. But it seems that there is an attempt to turn Wright into a heretic. Something which he is definitely not.
