In referencing “The Basic Book of Bible Texts” by John Jefferson Davis, I thought it would be helpful to post the Scriptures that are used to support the different denominational views on sanctification. Davis divides the views into 2 camps and then adds a Pentecostal perspective. Davis defines sanctification as:
The Christians’ growth in holiness and conformity to the character of Jesus Christ through personal faith and obedience and the ministry of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.
Three Views on Sanctification – Scriptures they are based on
Davis divides the views into 2 camps and also adds a Pentecostal perspective:
Some Christian traditions understand sanctification in terms of crisis experiences leading to Christian perfection (Holiness, Pentecostal, Nazarene); others understand sanctification primarily in terms of a continuous process which never reaches a state of Christian perfection in this life (Reformed, Lutheran, Anglican).
