TITLE: THE MARROW OF TRUE JUSTIFICATION,
OR JUSTIFICATION WITHOUT WORKS (1692)
Benjamin Keach

Read by Jeff Massey

Benjamin Keach was a leader among the 17th century English Particular Baptists and a pastor of a Particular Baptist Church meeting at Horsly-Down, Southwark for 36 years. He also represented the church at Horsly-Down at the 1689 General Assembly, which adopted what has become known as the Second London Baptist Confession.

 

In this first reading from The Marrow of True Justification, Benjamin Keach explains why the Doctrine of Justification by Faith in Christ Alone is ‘the very pillar of the Christian Religion.’ Then Keach gives the scope and coherence of Romans 4:5, so that his hearers might ‘understand the design and main drift of the Holy Spirit therein.’

Part 1 [mp3]

In this second reading from The Marrow of True Justification, Benjamin Keach answers the false and erroneous teachings of some men concerning the great Doctrine of Justification. He refutes the teachings of the Papists, Socinians, Arminians, Quakers, and some men, such as Richard Baxter, who were looked upon as true preachers of the Gospel by many, but who wrongly insisted that ‘sincere obedience’ must be joined to faith in order for a man to be justified.

Part 2 [mp3]

In this third reading from The Marrow of True Justification, Keach gives the scriptural proofs and arguments to confirm the doctrine that all works done by the creature are excluded from justification. Keach also shows that the false notion that men can be justified by works has its real origin in our corrupt natural reason and is part of the wisdom of this world.

Part 3 [mp3]

In this fourth and final reading from The Marrow of True Justification, Keach provides further scriptural proofs and arguments to confirm the doctrine that all works done by the creature are excluded from justification. Keach also shows that the Doctrine of Justification by Faith in Christ Alone does not lead to lawlessness (Antinomianism).
