Cleansing Fire

Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

~Sola Fide => ~Sola Gratia?

June 10th, 2010, Promulgated by b a

Jimmy Akin fielded an interesting question during the 6/3 show of CA Live.  If you listen to the show much, you’ll recognize this caller, Jason.  He’s a protestant who’s very respectful of the show and has been calling in quite a bit and asks pretty good questions.  His question this time was:

if you don’t subscribe to Sola Fide, how can you subscribe to Sola Gratia?

My paraphrasing of Jimmy’s response:

If God tells you to put on a funny hat and that by doing so you’ll be saved, would you say that you earned your salvation?

Here’s the whole call (about 10 minutes)


If you don’t have 10 minutes, I’ve snipped it up even more so that it’s reduced to the wisdom of Jimmy Akin (about 2 minutes)
