In order to have faith you must PAINT A TRUE PORTRAIT OF CHRIST.
The scholastics caricature Christ into a JUDGE AND TORMENTOR.
But Christ is NO LAW GIVER.
He is THE LIFE GIVER.
He is the FORGIVER OF SINS.
You must believe that CHRIST MIGHT HAVE ATONED for the sins of the world with ONE SINGLE DROP OF HIS BLOOD.
INSTEAD, HE SHED HIS BLOOD ABUNDANTLY in order that He might give ABUNDANT SATISFACTION for our sins.
Here let me say, that THESE THREE THINGS:
FAITH, CHRIST, and IMPUTATION OF RIGHTEOUSNESS are to be JOINED TOGETHER. FAITH TAKES HOLD OF CHRIST.
GOD accounts THIS FAITH for RIGHTEOUSNESS.”
