Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, brother in Christ, David Teves fills in at the pulpit to address this apparent contradiction surrounding the Biblical doctrine of justification as he continues his “5 Solas Series.”

And what we’ll find is that when it comes to reading scripture, “first glances,” as one blog author put it, “are not enough.”

Would you run? Would you stay to help?

Because, you see, how you answer these questions truly depends on WHAT, or WHO, you believe keeps you safe.

Sermon Notes

Date: 08/04/2019

Preacher: David Teves, guest preacher

Key Text: 2 Timothy 3:14-17

Description: The Protestant Reformation — an event in church history we tend to associate with Martin Luther and other 16th Century reformers. We tend to forget, however, that Jesus Christ was the Original Reformer.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, brother in Christ, David Teves fills in at the pulpit and shares that Martin Luther and others were simply following Jesus’ example. For the Pharisees and scribes held that the traditions and laws of man were equal with Scripture — just as the Medieval Church and the Pope, 1500 years later in Luther’s day, said that Scripture AND tradition were the authority on truth.

…And, the argument continues to this day: To find truth, are other influences required to come alongside the Holy Scriptures of the Bible… or is the Bible enough?

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 10/29/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Reformation Sunday

Key Text: Jude 3-7

SBC logo 204x204Description: On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther took out a hammer and nailed 95 theses to the castle church door in Wittenberg – an act that would catalyze debate and usher in radical change in the church.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao takes a moment to recognize this significant milestone in church history: the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Indeed, the reformers of yesteryear have left us with a great body of knowledge about God and the church and the state of man; but it leaves us wondering if any tasks remain. Is there anything left for us to do?

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Romans 8:28

SBC logo 204x204Description: Isn’t fascinating how a chemist can put together certain chemicals that in and of themselves would be poison … yet when properly mixed, change from something bad to something good?chemistry-lab-b For example sodium is a poison, and chlorine is a poison; but when compounded together, sodium chloride becomes table salt. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the Bible to show us that God’s “chemistry” was exhibited at the cross when His holiness met the depravity of man: yielding an outcome, for all who would believe, of salvation.

Is the Reformation Over? [selected texts]

October 31, 2010

Sermon Notes

Date: 10/31/2010

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: Reformation Sunday

Key Text: selected texts

Description: October 31 has historically been celebrated in the church as Reformation Day yet most Christians don’t even know that Reformation Day exists, to them, October 31 is simply Halloween. We have forgotten the great men who risked their lives for the sake of the gospel and have left us a legacy of Christian freedom and who God used to recovered the gospel of grace.  In today’s sermon we answer the question “Is the Reformation over?” and explore the five solas which function as the pillars of Reformation doctrine.

Notes:

The 5 Solas

  1. Sola Scriptura (“by Scripture Alone”)
  2. Sola Fide (“by Faith Alone”)
  3. Sola Gratia (“by Grace Alone”)
  4. Solus Christus or Solo Christo (“Christ Alone” or “through Christ Alone”)
  5. Soli Deo Gloria (“Glory to God Alone”)

Faith and Works

  • Roman Catholic View: Faith + Works → Justification
  • Reformation View: Faith → Justification + Works

The Formula

Scripture Teaches: Salvation is by Grace alone, through Faith alone, in Christ alone, to God’s Glory alone!
