TOPIC INDEXJustification (12)
Steven Paulson
  1. Faith is like a horse with blinders because it only beholds God’s promise. It is obsessed with what God has already said.
  2. To give us God’s name, the name that is above every name, Christ gave us the exact words to say at baptism: the name of the triune God who is three persons, one God: “I baptize you in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.”
  3. If God ever forgives you, it is not just allowing you to start over and try harder the second time, but it is a whole, new, complete justification that is given as a free gift and without any work of our own—outside the law.
