The Second London Baptist Confession

Chapter 11 - Justification


11.5 God continues to forgive the sins of all the justified. They can never lose their justification; but they may, by reason of sin, fall under God's fatherly displeasure; in which case, until they humble themselves, confess their sins, beg God's pardon, and renew their faith and repentance, God will not usually restore to them 'the light of His countenance'. [Ps. 32:5; Ps. 51; Ps. 89:31-33; Matt. 6:12; 26:75; John 10:28; 1 John 1:7,9.]

11.6 Believers in Old Testament times were justified in precisely the same way as New Testament believers. [Rom. 4:22-24; Gal. 3:9.]
