3 0 3 0 0 3:4: God only is essentially true. All men in their own capacity are liable to lies and errors: nevertheless God, who is the truth, will make good his promise of keeping his church in all truth. See St. John 16.13. 3 4 3 0 0 3:10 There is not any man just: , viz. by virtue either of the law of nature, or of the law of Moses; but only by faith and grace. 3 10 3 0 0 3:28 By faith, etc: The faith, to which the apostle here attributes man's justification, is not a presumptuous assurance of our being justified; but a firm and lively belief of all that God has revealed or promised. Heb. 11. A faith working through charity in Jesus Christ. Gal. 5.6. In short, a faith which takes in hope, love, repentance, and the use of the sacraments. And the works which he here excludes, are only the works of the law: that is, such as are done by the law of nature, or that of Moses, antecedent to the faith of Christ: but by no means, such as follow faith, and proceed from it. 3 28 3 0 0 Content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8 THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims: ro 3:0
