Core Christianity: Tough Questions Answered

What’s the Main Difference Between Justification and Sanctification?

host Adriel Sanchez aired April 22, 2022

Episode 951 Show Notes 

From the Show

We don’t want to confuse justification and sanctification. If we make justification a process of inward renewal, you’ll never know if you are truly justified.

Adriel Sanchez

What’s the Main Difference Between Justification and Sanctification?

Questions in this Episode

  1. How can Jesus be impeccable? James 1:13 says God cannot be tempted. If it was impossible for Jesus to sin and fall, does this diminish his work of keeping the law?
  2. What is the biblical difference between justification, salvation, and sanctification?
  3. Why do Christians believe in the trinity if Deuteronomy 6 says that God is “one”?
  4. Did the trinity separate or break when Jesus died on the cross?
  5. How do Protestants defend their views about communion against the Roman Catholic view?
