Faith in Christ Alone

John MacArthur said, "Salvation from eternal condemnation is by faith alone (sola fide), and Christ alone (solus Christus) saves. Apart from Christ, there is no hope for anyone."

What MacArthur wrote is based upon clear Bible teaching. Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me (John 14:6). Jesus Christ alone is the way to God the Father.

Faith in Christ alone is the true way to God the Father. He said, I am the truth. He is the truth according to the Holy Scripture. The Holy Spirit bears witness to the truth of Christ in our hearts. The Holy Spirit enables you to believe and confess the truth (1 Corinthians 12:3). 

Faith in Christ alone is the living way to God the Father. He said, I am the life. The resurrection of Jesus from the grave on the third day proves that He alone is the living way. The power of the Holy Spirit raised Him from the grave (Romans 1:4).

Jesus said, No one comes to the Father except through me. Others may say, "There are many ways to God." Choose the words of Jesus as your risen Lord over other opinions. Jesus Christ alone is the one who died for our sins. He is risen from the dead as our living Lord. His words are true. Salvation is by faith in Christ alone.
