“The five reformational solas”

John 3:16-17;  “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” Acts 4:12. “ Salvation is found in no else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”

2 Timothy 3:15-17.  “And how from infancy you have known the Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.  All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching rebuking correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

Rom 3:21-28; “ But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished – he did it to demonstrate his justice at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus. Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded. On what principle? On that of observing the law? No, but on that of faith .For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from observing the law. See also Eph 2:8-9: Hebrews 11:1  “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” [definition of faith]

Ephesians 2:8-9; “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith –and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast.”

There are many passages in Scripture that call on all creation to give all glory to God alone.  See Exo 14:4ff; Psalm 8:1; 19:1; Psalm 24:7ff; Psalm 29:1ff; Psalm 57:1ff; Psa 73:25-28; 1 Cor 10:31; Rom 11:36; Rev 1:6; Rev 4:11 and many, many others.
