Christ alone

Christ alone, from the latin Solus Christus, is one of the five Solas of the Reformation. It emphasizes that salvation is made possible for man only by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Relation to the other Solas

  1. Sola scriptura - Christ's life, death and ressurection is chronicled perfectly in the Holy Scriptures. Only from Scripture is it possible to derive any knowledge of His saving work.
  2. Sola gratia - The knowledge of Christ's redeeming work is made accessible to man in spite of his hardened heart (which views the gospel as "foolishness" - 1 Cor 2:14)
  3. Sola fide - Grace produces faith, which brings actual salvation upon the believing sinner.
  4. Soli Deo gloria - Christ is glorified whenever someone believes in His redeeming work. His ressurection is often reffered to the glorification of His mission on earth.
