Romans 3:25-26, 28 — New International Version

25 God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood — to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished — 26 he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus. 28 For we maintain that a person is justified by faith apart from the works of the law.

3 Solas of the Reformation:
Sola Gratia = Grace Alone
Sola Fides = Faith Alone
Sola Scriptura = Scripture Alone

3 Solas of the world today:
Sola Politica Rectitudo = Political Correctness Alone
Sola Relatio Moralis = Moral Relitivism Alone
Sola Affluentia Mundana = Worldly Influence Alone

In a person’s life it’s either God’s influence or Satans!
