The Council of Trent on Justification and Eschatology

The Council of Trent on Justification and Eschatology

The Council of Trent directly relates justification to the eschatological judgment of Christ.

Therefore, when receiving true and Christian justice, they are bidden, immediately on being born again, to preserve it pure and spotless, as the first robe given them through Jesus Christ in lieu of that which Adam, by his disobedience, lost for himself and for us, that so they may bear it before the judgment-seat of our Lord Jesus Christ, and may have life everlasting.

This eschatological emphasis demonstrates what modern scholarship is currently revisiting. Justification isn’t merely an act that is “once and for all” (as is the mystery of Christ’s death and resurrection). Instead, when we “receive true and Christian justice,” we are bidden to preserve it as a clean robe and “bear it before the judgment seat of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
