The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Sola Panel | Descent into hell

The Sola Panel | Descent into hell


aaytch said...

"Descent into Hell" is an essential part of our understanding of Atonement and Justification. It seems to me that "Descent into Hell" cannot be discussed apart from Romans 6 in which it becomes clear that the effect of the Cross extends not only to our present sins, those we commit on earth, but also to the Sin of our inheritance, with which we were born, the miry clay of Adam.

How else can we be asked to becomes slaves to Righteousness except that He has removed even the stain of our birth sin. We were formerly born as heirs of God in Adam and now we are reborn as heirs of God in Christ.

We become slaves to righteousness but it is and always will be an imperfect sanctification process. Justification alone can put us in right standing with God and keep us in that state of right standing.

Amen, aaytch.
