Of Free Justification, By the Blood and Righteousness of Christ
Justification, by Christ alone.
In this small volume, the pioneer preacher, Elder Wilson Thompson, correctly articulates the Biblical, and historic Baptist view of justification solely by the redemption found in Christ Jesus (Romans 3:24). In this pursuit of truth, Elder Thompson quotes other such men as English Particular Baptist minister, Dr. John Gill. This small work manifests where historic Baptists stand apart from both Catholics and Reformers. We deny that our works play any role in justifying us before God, as well as deny that faith is an instrument through which we are declared righteous before God. Faith and works both declare to us what God has already accomplished for us through our savior, Jesus Christ. As Thompson declares, “It is Christ that died, and so we see that justification is of the grace of God through the blood and righteousness of Christ, and faith is the Spirit’s evidence of it to and for the comfort of the soul; and this is according to the experience of every truly regenerated man or woman.”
