What do Roman Catholics believe? Is the Reformation over? Have Roman Catholics and Protestants moved beyond the polemics of the Reformation and found common confessional ground, at least in regard to the doctrine of justification? Should the Reformation’s conflict with Rome continue?
Are the differences that continue to divide Roman Catholics and Protestants mere “petty quarreling” as Chuck Colson has publicly stated [cf., Keith Fournier, Evangelical Catholics (Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson, 1990), p. iv]. Does justification still matter?
This week, on the White Horse Inn, Michael Horton talks with Robert Sungenis, president of Catholic Apologetics International about the Roman Catholic view of justification in order to contrast it with the classical Protestant position.
(Note: Sungenis is the author of three books which are self-revealing, at least from a Roman Catholic viewpoint: Not by Faith Alone: A Biblical Study of the Catholic Doctrine of Justification; Not By Scripture Alone: A Catholic Critique of the Protestant Doctrine of Sola Scriptura; Not By Bread Alone: The Biblical and Historical Evidence for the Eucharistic Sacrifice).
