Faith Alone: Is It Justifiable? (MP3)
Justification is one of the core differences between Catholics and Protestants. While not all Protestant denominations understand the term the same way, most believe that man is justified—that is, transformed from unrighteousness into holiness and sonship to God—by faith alone.
In the clearly articulated, enlightening series Faith Alone: Is It Justifiable? , former Presbyterian minister Scott Hahn explains the Catholic and Protestant views of justification and teaches us how to approach our non-Catholic brethren in discussing this doctrine. Following his lead, we can create opportunities to effectively share in its fullness the truth of God’s plan for our salvation.
