Justification By Faith Alone (Free MP3s and Reformation Books)


"In the history of the church's sanctification I don't believe there has been a more valuable extra-biblical resource and tool than the Puritan Hard Drive." - Dr. C. Matthew McMahon, A Puritan's Mind
John Calvin Graphic
John Calvin, The Quintessential Protestant Reformer


"We explain justification simply as the acceptance with which God receives us into His favour as righteous men. And we say that it consists in the remission of sins and the imputation of Christ's righteousness." - John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, 3:11:2.

Martin Luther

"This one and firm rock, which we call the doctrine of justification is the chief article of the whole Christian doctrine, which comprehends the understanding of all godliness... if this article stands, the Church stands; if it falls, the Church falls." -  Martin Luther, Commentary on Galatians, 1538.


"What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found? For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God. For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered" (Romans 4:7, emphases added).


Westminster Confession Of Faith Color Graphic 

The Westminster Confession Of Faith 

"Those whom God effectually calls, He also freely justifies; not by infusing righteousness into them, but by pardoning their sins, and by accounting and accepting their persons as righteous; not for any thing wrought in them, or done by them, but for Christ's sake alone; nor by imputing faith itself, the act of believing, or any other evangelical obedience to them, as their righteousness; but by imputing the obedience and satisfaction of Christ unto them, they receiving and resting on Him and His righteousness by faith; which faith they have not of themselves, it is the gift of God... God does continue to forgive the sins of those that are justified; and although they can never fall from the state of justification, yet they may, by their sins, fall under God's fatherly displeasure, and not have the light of His countenance restored unto them, until they humble themselves, confess their sins, beg pardon, and renew their faith and repentance. The justification of believers under the Old Testament was, in all these respects, one and the same with the justification of believers under the New Testament." - The Westminster Confession of Faith, Of Justification, Chapter 11:1,5,6, Original Ed., 1647 (emphases added).

Justification by Faith Alone: A Plea for Understanding 

by Dr. C. Matthew McMahon.


An excellent collection of free online resources, justification by faith alone, at A Puritan's Mind.


Dr. McMahon writes, "Today, I believe, as it was in the sixteenth century, the need to regain lost ground in understanding the doctrine of Justification by faith alone has come to the forefront... It is a vital doctrine that we cannot do without. Its urgency dictates the difference between one going to heaven and one going to hell.  It is of crucial significance and should be rightly understood by those who claim Christ as their banner. If justification is misunderstood, being the pillar upon which the church stands or falls, then what will the rest of our doctrine look like? Will it be a nominal Christianity? Would it be works righteousness? I think it would. To understand that we must be clothed in the righteousness of Christ for safety in the Day of Judgment is of vital import."

The Gospel (Justification) Crisis in the OPC and PCA by Brian Schwertley (Free MP3)

A listener comments: "Every true Presbyterian should here this!!! Would that every Presbyterian who loves Christ and His Gospel listen to this message! Mr. Schwertley does what other watchmen have failed to do -- issue the clarion call with a certain sound. To those listeners who are tempted to say that his message is too strong, I commend the words of Spurgeon: "'That is strong meat,' do you say? Be strong men, then, and feed thereon". (Charles Spurgeon, Sermons, 1891)." - Rick P. from Forney, TX (10/7/2006)

The Early Church & A History of Justification, Faithfulness, Apostasy & Antichrist by Richard Bennett and W.J. Mencarow (Free Video and MP3) 


Great Reformational Truths (Refuting the Federal Vision Heresy) by John Otis 

Some of the great battle cries of the Reformation were sola Christo (by Christ alone); sola gratia (by grace alone); sola fide (by faith alone). One of the great threats to the Reformed church today is the heretical Federal Vision movement (on many points, but especially regarding justification by faith alone). Romans five puts the blow torch to this new false (Romanizing) theology.


John Calvin Color Graphic
John Calvin

Our Righteousness Not From Ourselves by John Calvin Where does our righteousness come from? Calvin explains that it is not from ourselves, it is an alien righteousness from God.


The Active and Passive Obedience of Jesus Christ by Dr. C. Matthew McMahon 

With the rise of the heresy of the Federal Vision, New Perspectives on Paul, and the Auburn Avenue Theology, there stands a continued need for reproclaiming the truth of historic Christianity. Contrary to modern liberal theologians who are continually trying to appeal to the masses with new fangled theological ideas, such a reproclamation of orthodox theology is in accord with both the Gospel, and the Westminster Confession of Faith, and needs no revision, updating or change. Reformed Theology does not need to be modernized; it simply needs to be understood.

On Justification By Faith Alone


The Doctrine of Justification by James Buchanan


Doctrine Of Justification by James Buchanan (Book Graphic)Must reading! This book contains an outline of the history of this doctrine in the church (from the Old Testament to the author's day), as well as a lengthy exposition of it from Scripture. Dr. Joel Beeke writes, "The chapter on justification in relation to the work of the Holy Spirit is alone worth the price of the book. Throughout, Buchanan systematizes the doctrine of justification in an orthodox Reformed manner that is fully reliable, is consistent with all the doctrines of grace, and is still relevant to the burning issues of our day, such as the New Perspective (and the Federal Vision heresy - ed.)... If you can only afford to read one book on justification, read this definitive work." -Joel R. Beeke.

The God Who Justifies by James White

The First Comprehensive Treatment of Justification in 150 Years!

The God Who Justifies James White (Book Graphic)The history of the Christian church pivots on the doctrine of justification by faith. Once the core of the Reformation, the church today often ignores or misunderstands this foundational doctrine. Theologian James White calls believers to a fresh appreciation and understanding of, and dedication, to the great doctrine of justification and then provides an exegesis of the key Scriptural texts on this theme.

In today's culture where tolerance is the new absolute, James White proclaims with passion the truth and centrality of the doctrine of justification by faith.

"Finally -- a contemporary, exegetical, doctrinal, and able defense of the historic Protestant doctrine of justification by God's free grace by faith in Jesus Christ alone. This is the best book on justification since James Buchanan's mid-nineteenth-century classic. We need to teach this material to our congregations." - Dr. Joel R. Beeke

"In the history of the church's sanctification I don't believe there has been a more valuable extra-biblical resource and tool than the Puritan Hard Drive.


It holds some of the most priceless Reformed works of God-centered and Christ-glorifying truth that were ever penned.


Most students, ministers and scholars of the Bible would never personally acquire even half the literal number of books on the Puritan Hard Drive, much less

the extreme caliber of its contents.


In God's providence modern day Christians have been chosen to be the recipients of both

a theological and practical blessing. May we not squander it."
