Heiligung: Klar und Deutlich

Heiligung kann nur vollständig begriffen werden, wenn es ausgelebt wird.  Dunning zeigt auf, dass die beste Erklärung und der wahre Beweis für eine Lehre nicht in isolierten Formulierungen zu finden ist, sondern vielmehr in unserem Leben.

Biblical Resources for Holiness Preaching, From Text to Sermon cover

The term “holiness” is subject to a wide range of meanings. There are few terms that conjure up so many divergent ideas in the minds of those who hear it. Not only is this the case, but even within the compass of the Bible, “holiness” and its cognate term, “sanctification,” have a variety of meanings and applications.
