Washed, Sanctified and Justified
in the Sacraments of the Catholic Church.
Man is primarily justified by the "faith OF Christ". Then when man places his "faith IN Christ" and his blood for the forgiveness of sins (Romans 3:24-26), God justifies the man with his righteousness because of the "faith OF Christ" (Romans 3:22, Galatians 2:16, Philippians 3:9). Man cannot and will not be justified by his faith alone, but realizing it is by the "faith OF Christ" that provides the means of justification - see Romans 1:17.
