Of the Effects of Christ's Passion
We have now to consider what are the effects of Christ's Passion, concerning which there are six points of inquiry:
- Whether we were freed from sin by Christ's Passion?
- Whether we were thereby delivered from the power of the devil?
- Whether we were freed thereby from our debt of punishment?
- Whether we were thereby reconciled with God?
- Whether heaven's gate was opened to us thereby?
- Whether Christ derived exaltation from it?
