Episode 13.3: The War Within


Where does the “war” imagery of this paragraph come from? Do you think the Westminster Divines are “heresy-hunting” in this paragraph? What wrong views of sanctification has the church struggled with? How does corruption remain in the believer? What are some biblical examples of believers in whom corruption prevailed for a time? How does the Spirit of Christ provide continual supplies of strength? What is meant by the phrase “perfecting holiness”? Tune in as Nathan, Joel, Shawn, and Kyle discuss WCF 13.3:

In which war, although the remaining corruption, for a time, may much prevail; yet, through the continual supply of strength from the sanctifying Spirit of Christ, the regenerate part does overcome; and so, the saints grow in grace, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
