On the Journey with Matt and Ken, Episode 31:
A Damning System of Works Righteousness, Part XV
On the last episode, Matt Swaim and Ken Hensley dealt with how the Council of Trent discussed justification as an event. On this episode, they look at how Trent talks about justification as a process.
If the event of justification (when a believer is baptized and enters into the family of God) can be comparable to the Israelites going through the Red Sea, then the process of justification (the lifelong journey of a Christian in relationship with God) can be likened to the journey of the Israelites through the desert to the promised land.
The Catholic Church teaches that justification is both an event and a process, and Matt and Ken explore how the Council of Trent discusses salvation in those two ways.
