In this article from the current issue of Tabletalk, R.C. Sproul deals with one of the most pervasive false views of justification--that justification comes by death. "It is an implicit universalism that assumes everyone goes to heaven when he or she dies.

Read Justification by Death to see how Dr. Sproul learned just how pervasive this belief is and to learn what factors drive it.
