Sattar , Paperback Fundamentals of Pathology - Pathoma: Can we truly overcome sin? Jesus said that whoever sins is a slave to sin John 8: We are to be dead to sin Romans 6: We are to be holy as God is holy and without holiness no one will see the Lord Hebrews So how does God make us holy? As disciples of Jesus we understand that we are holy in Christ Hebrews John Wesley seeks to answer what he means by "Christian perfection.
Instead, the Spirit of God helps the child of God to overcome sin. We can be free from sin. Jesus is now our Lord and He is more than able to deliver His people from their sins.
Those who teach that we are always slaves to sin ignore the clear teaching of the New Testament. Overall this is good work. Wesley does a good job of showing what the Bible teaches about God's holiness as well as the holiness of the disciple. The writing styles from the s makes it a little challenging at times however the content is really good. If you are struggling to understand what Wesley meant by perfection this will help. Simply put if you love God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength and love your neighbor as your self you will cease to sin therefore becoming a perfect christian.
It does not mean that we are perfect or not with out temptation or the ability to sin. Any of us can fall when we cease to walk in love toward God or man.

One person found this helpful. John Wesley, a real man of God. Here you will find John Wesley as he explains his doctrine of Christian Perfection. Many attacks were leveled at him for this teaching of his, and here he answers for himself in a well written way.
Wholeness In Christ by Greathouse, William M
This book is good because even today, much of the same attacks have been leveled against this teaching. Thus, any one at all interested in the formation and defense of this teaching, either side of the aisle, should read this book. I'll get straight to the point. Why is this book like this?
Frequently bought together
Becuase it was not typed by a human being, but by an automated computer system that scanned in the original book, using software to "read" the letters and generate the text so it can then be printed. This is explained in the front of the book, but it was NOT made clear here on the Amazon page.
Do not be misled by the conflicting information on this listing. Spend a little more and get one of the REAL editions of this book.

I regret my purchase, and will try to return it. Please don't make the same mistake I made. Excellent book on the theology of John Wesley, easy read and goes straight to the heart. Many books of theology are very lengthy but Wesley gets it done in a book that shouldn't take long to read. And the great thing about it is that you can read it in less than 3 hours.
