On the Journey with Matt and Ken Episode 24:
A Damning System of Works Righteousness, Part VIII
Matt Swaim and Ken Hensley continue their discussion of the question of justification by “faith alone,” as articulated by Reformed theology, which Ken once held to as a Baptist pastor.
If Noah, Abraham, and others, were “reckoned righteous” by faith ALONE, why were they required to continue in obedience in order to remain in God’s favor? And what about the curious case of Phinehas, son of Eleazar, who ran through a rebellious Israelite and his mistress with a spear, and it was “reckoned to him as righteousness?” (Ps. 106:31)
