Justification (getting it right)

Material Principle of the Reformation: sola fide (by faith alone)

Luther: “The doctrine by which the church stands or fall”

Forensic or juridicial

Act of God

Declaration of righteousness

Imputation of Christ’s righteousness

Sinner’s guilt imputed on Christ

Not to be confused with sanctification

It is what God had done for me, not what I have to do for Him
