"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    OPC Report on Justification

    Report on Justification Presented to the Seventy-third General Assembly of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church

    With this report, the Committee on the Doctrine of Justification presents to the Seventy-third General Assembly of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church the result of two years of study of the matters entrusted to it. We pray that our work may be helpful for the church and serve to equip and embolden her for the proclamation and defense of the gospel of Jesus Christ in the midst of the challenges to that gospel in the present day. The Seventy-first General Assembly erected this Committee “to critique the teachings of the ‘New Perspective on Paul,’ ‘Federal Vision’ and other like teachings concerning the doctrine of justification and other related doctrines, as they are related to the Word of God and our subordinate standards, with a view to giving a clear statement to the presbyteries, sessions and seminaries, and report back to the Seventy-second GA….”

    The Report on Justification presented to the Seventy-third (2006) General Assembly is now available and may be accessed by clicking here.

    Ah, a succinct 89 page report...and I was afraid it might be long!

    Actually this comes at a great time! I've been discussing justification with a Catholic recently, and the first section should be really helpful for setting all my thoughts in order. I suppose I could just print this report and hand out copies on the steps of the nearest Catholic church...effective witnessing? :)
