A Foundation for Understanding Sanctification Understand the Bible? Pastor Melissa Scott, Ph.D.

    • Christianity

What the Bible means by the word "sanctification" is difficult to understand in English because different streams of words were used simultaneously to translate these concepts.  It is faulty understanding and bad theology that equate holiness with morality or perfection; the meaning in the original languages was to be set apart by God for His purposes.  Rightly understood, it is not something we can do to ourselves but rather something done to us by the Holy Spirit.
