Show Notes:

Justification, Sanctification & Confession of Sin

  • God imputes the righteousness of Christ at a particular point of time
  • status changes from condemned and guilty to not condemned and guilty
  • if we are justified then why would Christians confess our sins?
  • your sins are dealt with in a particular way but they are not dealt with in the only way
  • justification makes you a part of God’s family, no matter what
  • your justification can never be improved upon but your sanctification can
  • obedience is always better

Bondage of the Will:

  • written by Martin Luther
  • he is thoroughly Augustinian and Calvinistic
  • has a robust understanding of God’s sovereignty
  • Luther is responding to Erasmus and takes his arguments apart
  • he shows that we are saved by God’s sovereign grace and nothing else
  • if you’re working through Calvinistic issues this is an amazing read


  • sin and shame are closely related
  • aischron is rendered as shame in three places
  • 1 Corinthians 11:6, it’s a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven
  • 1 Corinthians 14:53, it’s a shame for women to refuse to learn from their husbands
  • Ephesians 5:12, it’s a shame to even speak of those things which are done by unbelievers in secret
  • it’s ironic that the only kind of shame that many modern Christians feel is shame over the existence of such passages in the Bible
