Sola Fide: Justification by Faith Alone

Don’t let anyone tell you that doctrine isn’t important.  The doctrine of justification by faith alone has everything to do with your relationship with God.  It has everything to do with that peace of heart and mind that we all so desperately want and need. “Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lo...
