"...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)

    We are a community of confessing believers who love the gospel of Jesus Christ, affirm the Biblical and Christ-exalting truths of the Reformation such as the five solas, the doctrines of grace, monergistic regeneration, and the redemptive historical approach to interpreting the Scriptures.

    A Sample Chapter on Justification

    In Dr. R. C. Sproul's latest book "Are We Together? A Protestant Analyzes Roman Catholicism" he outlines six core doctrines in which Roman Catholicism is at odds with the clear teaching of the Bible; namely her view of Scripture, justification, the Church, the sacraments, the Papacy and the role of Mary. He also describes how Protestants should relate to Roman Catholics without minimizing the vital differences. The book is a clarion call to evangelicals to stand firm for the gospel, the precious good news of salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, all to the glory of God alone.

    I encourage you to read the foreword (by Dr. Michael Horton) as well as the introduction and sample chapter on justification:

    I have a parent of one of my students who has been talking to me and asking me a lot of questions about the difference between Protestants and Catholics. I plan on forwarding her this blog post, as I think she'll learn quite a bit—and I bet she'll even pick up a copy of Dr. R.C. Sproul's book! Thank you for sharing this!
