For example, see the Prologue to Romans, Works, 493-4, which emphasizes that faith ‘altereth a man, and changeth him into a new spiritual nature’...)For a thorough refutation of the Protestant view of justification, consult this debate: Justification Debate with a Reformed Protestant (Calvinist) – Refutes Protestantism This is also a must-see video.
