The story of the Protestant Reformation is a recovery of the gospel.
At yung gospel na ito ay summarized in the five solas of the Reformation. Ang salitang sola ay Latin for alone. In clear contrast sa plus-and doctrines ng Catholic Church.
At the heart of the gospel is the doctrine of justification by grace alone (sola gratia) through faith alone (sola fide) in Christ alone (solus Christus). Saan galing ‘yan? By what authority ang basis natin ng doktrinang iyan? From Scripture alone (sola Scriptura). Para saan ang lahat ng iyan? For the glory of God alone (soli Deo gloria). Iisa-isahin natin yan sa bawat bahagi ng aklat na ito.
The five solas are practical. They are historical. But more importantly, they are biblical.
Kailangan natin ng rediscovery of the gospel today in our churches. We need a modern reformation.
