Old Testament Faith
Download Full Text
Although trained in the Law and practiced strict adherence to the Law, Paul deploys persuasive reasoning skills to present that faith, not logic or reason, is what connects us to God. He uses vibrant examples from the Old Testament to prove his point. Interestingly, in his letter to the Galatians, Paul argues that Abraham was counted righteous on account of his faith. He clearly presents that Abraham’s ground for justification was not obedience; and that obedience is the result of justification. God treated Abraham as if he never sinned because Abraham believed God. You, too, can believe God and accept His gift of salvation from your sins.
