The Five Fundamentals of Christianity
Truth is a system of thought. To understand Christianity and to grow in Christ a Christian must think like Christ, systematically and systemically. The five fundamentals of Christianity provide a Christian with a biblical framework to begin organizing their minds under a doctrinal hierarchy of thought. A Christian’s discernment is only as sound as the system from which they reason. If their system of thought is a confounded, comingling of human viewpoint and divine viewpoint then their judgment will be unsound, their minds will be confused and they will be unwittingly led by Satan.
Purpose: To learn the five fundamentals of Christianity in order to think like Christ and to live like Christ to the glory of God.
1. Scripture Alone—2. Christ Alone 3. Grace Alone 4. Faith Alone 5. The Glory of God Alone — The order is highly instructive and the qualifying word ‘Alone’ is of monumental significance. In the order God tells us where to begin our thinking and why we are to begin with Scripture and why we are not to begin with any other starting point. The word ‘Alone’ in each of the five fundamentals’ begins the godly process of separating in our minds God’s truth from Satan’s error.
