Message: “Salvation Has Always Been By Faith” from Shawn Merithew
Many Christians mistakenly think that the Old Covenant was the covenant of works and that all the Old Testament saints who kept the law and made their sacrifices were saved under that system. They further think that the Old Covenant was then replaced by the New Covenant through the ministry of Christ and now people are saved by grace through faith. Paul’s words here serve as a corrective to this view. As he teaches here, salvation has always been by grace through faith.
