Learn how Martin Luther doctored the text of the Bible by putting a word in Saint Paul’s mouth so as to justify Luther’s own peculiar doctrine of justification.

Saint Paul uses the word “alone” more than any other New Testament author, but he never uses it in conjunction with faith. The only place in Scripture where the word “faith” and the word “alone” exist together is within the Epistle of James: “You see that a man is justified by works and not by faith alone” (James 2:24). Here we find the phrase “faith alone,” but it is categorically rejected – James asserts that Christians are not justified by faith alone.
