LOOKING TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP JESUS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. 18 No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known].

The Christianity That I Know

This is statement 15 in the document The Gospel of Jesus Christ: An Evangelical Celebration...

"#15:We affirm that saving faith results in sanctification, the transformation of life in growing conformity to Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. Sanctification means ongoing repentance, a life of turning from sin to serve Jesus Christ in grateful reliance on him as one’s Lord and Master (Gal. 5:22-25; Rom. 8:4, 13-14).
We reject any view of justification which divorces it from our sanctifying union with Christ and our increasing conformity to his image through prayer, repentance, cross-bearing, and life in the Spirit."

I can't believe anybody would have a problem with this.

It is hard to believe people would not agree. I heard Dr. D. James Kennedy say in a sermon, "If there is no sanctification in a person's life, then there has been no justification." Sanctification is not adding works to justification. It is a result of regeneration and justification.

How can that be more logical or clearer?

"Sanctification is not adding works to justification. It is a result of regeneration and justification."

Right on W.H.
