Sanctification and the Gospel

Recent blog activity has been slow due to my two months of summer Hebrew which will be wrapping up at the end of August. Things on the blog will be picking up pace again after that. But I am breaking the silence to post a link to this worthwhile article on the Reformation 21 blog about a current discussion that is taking place about Christian sanctification. The question being debated is how the gospel relates to the Christian life, or more specifically, how justification relates to sanctification.

Since some are unfamiliar with this debate, the author, William Evans, first takes time to outline some of the recent exchanges. Then he takes a critical look at some of the issues. He has a discerning eye and does an excellent job of clarifying some of the mistakes that are being made. I recommend his thoughts for your consideration.
