"...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)

A Fresh Look at the Five Solas (Sermon Series)

Over the last five Sundays in a sermon series at King's Church, we have been taking a fresh look at the Five Solas of the Reformation. In that time, we have drunk deeply at the well of salvation and seen the Lord Jesus Christ and His power to save in new and fresh ways. It has been a joy! I hope the series can be a blessing to others also, and so make these sermons available here. - John Samson

The Five Solas: Now in E-Book and Audiobook

As the Bible came to be read in the common language of the people, the great central truths the Bible proclaimed were recovered, often at great cost to those who came to embrace them.

The Reformation recovered and highlighted glorious Scriptural truths which have been expressed in five memorable phrases, now known as the Five Solas. Properly understood, these Five Solas bring us back to the very heart of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

ANNOUNCEMENT: My new book/booklet "The Five Solas - Standing Togther Alone" is now available in EBOOK and AUDIO BOOK at this link. I trust you will find it to be a blessing in these new formats.

ENDORSEMENTS:

Recently wrote the author these words: “You have succinctly and clearly distilled the essence of the ‘Solas.’ May God mightily use your book for His glory. Thank you for the encouragement in the gospel you have brought to me.” - Dr. R.C. Sproul

“Some authors make you read three chapters before getting to the first point in their outline. If you wish to understand the foundation of the solas of the Reformation but would like to do so in under an hour, John Samson provides you with the basics right here.” - Dr. James White

“Get this book! Then get several more to share with your friends and family. John Samson has the remarkable ability to communicate essential truths with an undeniable passion and faithfulness that is winsome, clear, and devastating to the opposition. The people of God in this generation are in need of these old truths: the same truths that transformed the early church and led our heroes (throughout history) into living lives that changed the world. Go sell 100 of your vapid, modern Evangellyfish books and turn that money into getting this book into the hearts and minds of Christians everywhere.” - Jeff Durbin, Pastor, Apologia Church, Tempe, AZ

“Recent years have seen a number of key anniversaries connected with events and people who were vital catalysts in the Protestant Reformation. Thankfully this has resulted in a renewed focus on the ‘five solas’ – a convenient shorthand list of the Reformers’ key convictions. Throughout church history, wherever these principles have been stressed and adhered to, the church has always flourished. So it is a highly encouraging trend. I’m thankful for this excellent booklet by John Samson; a cogent, focused, and accessible study of the solas that not only reminds us what these principles mean, but also shows us why they are important – and why they must stand together.” - Phil Johnson – Executive Director, Grace To You

“This is such a crucial topic; and having read many pieces written on the five solas, this one stands out for not only being theologically sound, but also clear and concise. It is written in a way that just about anyone could pick up and understand. I am thankful that God has raised up his servant John Samson for this deeply needed work; a work we ought to get into the hands of as many people as possible.” - John Hendryx, monergism.com

From New Age to Christ

In this powerful interview, Steve Bancarz describes his dramatic conversion to Christ, and why he walked away from being a high prominence writer in the New Age movement with a monthly salary of around $40,000 a month. Along the way, he discusses the pervasiveness of the movement and its teaching which includes pantheism, reincarnation, aliens, UFO's, yoga, hypnosis and its connection with the demonic realm.

The More Sure Word

Text: Matt 17:1-8; 2 Peter 1:16-21

In terms of human experience, Peter had the big one!!! Only two other men on planet earth experienced it - the Transfiguration of Christ - where He was seen in His glory and where the audible voice of God the Father was heard speaking from heaven. And yet, Peter writes that Scripture is a more reliable guide than even this...
