What is the significance of asserting God’s work of conversion? What does it mean to “translate” into a state of grace? How does God’s saving work change our wills? How are we freed from the natural bondage of sin? What is perfectionism and why don’t we believe in it? How does a Christian resist sin? Tune in as Nathan, Joel, Shawn, and Kyle as discuss WCF 9.4:
When God converts a sinner, and translates him into the state of grace, He frees him from his natural bondage under sin; and, by His grace alone, enables him freely to will and to do that which is spiritually good; yet so, as that by reason of his remaining corruption, he does not perfectly, or only, will that which is good, but does also will that which is evil.
