“…Chief among the truths evangelicals need to recover are the great Reformation doctrines summarized by the well-known solas (Latin for “only” or “alone”): sola Sciptura, which means “Scripture alone”; solus Christus, which means “Christ alone”; sola gratia, which means “grace alone”; sola fide, which means “faith alone”; and soli Deo gloria, which means “glory to God alone.”
“…We must recover the historic Christian faith. This will require serious study of the Bible, and for some it will involve a radical reordering of their entire perspectives, not to mention the way they have been going about their Christian work. For all, it will mean a new reliance on the power of the Holy Spirit to work through the teaching and preaching of God’s word, rather than a frantic search for some tantalizing new methodology to persuade unbelievers to attend and join our churches.”
