"Christian Concepts to Remember" From Pastor Rob
Magnified Bible Verse
        In the sermon at Hillside on Sunday, February 6, I will speak about Justification by Faith. Alister McGrath calls this “the central theme of both the Old and New Testaments” i . Do you agree? Or, would you say salvation is the central theme? Or, redemption? Or, New Creation? McGrath would locate all these important ideas along with restoration, regeneration, forgiveness of sins, and many others under the category of justification.
I do not think the average churchgoer who doesn’t regularly read theology books will be able to differentiate between these terms. I regularly read theological works and tomes, and it’s not easy for me to distill the ideas into concise definitions. Theological thinking is beneficial, and I will, in the preaching, attempt to help the church grow in theological understanding.
