Who Said That?

"Justification has been merited for us by the Passion of Christ.  It is granted to us through Baptism.  It conforms us to the righteousness of of God, who justifies us.  It has for its goal the glory of God and of Christ, and the gift of eternal life.  It is the most excellent work of God's mercy."

Leave your guess (no cheating!) in the comments section below.  Answer to follow with the next post.

Not sure who said it but the passion of christ line makes me think it's something catholic.

The view of baptism justifying sounds Lutheran.

"Justification ... conforms us to the righteousness of of God."

A Roman Catholic source. I mean, you can argue that sanctification flows from justification (Reformed), but that's not really what people ever mean when they talk in the way of the quote.

The line about baptism sounds Catholic . . . G.K. Chesterton?

reg -

Explain baptism (explain what it is, not what it isn't):
a. What is the role of God in baptism?
b. What is the role of the person being baptized?
c. What age should a person be baptized?

My guess to the question is that is from a Roman Catholic.

Had to be a Pope or a Federal Vision Guy like James Jordan or maybe even Doug Wilson.

Sounds like Darren Sutton.

Hmm, His Holiness the Pope?
Not sure I'd try to narrow it down more than that...

Right off this struck me as Roman Catholic.
My first thought was Benedict the current pope.

But I rad the comments here & agree with Charles S.
This reads like the RC Catechism.
So give Charles any "points"

Either Pope John Paul II or some FV guy.
