Can We Be Glorified Without Being Sanctified? Good Works, Good News, and Christian Assurance

Speakers: Kevin DeYoung Year: 2016 Session: Main Session

What is the relationship between good works, assurance of salvation, and the grace of Christ? Kevin DeYoung aims to show from God’s Word, exploring the history and theology of the church, how good works, good news, and Christian assurance are not opposed to each other and how these things do in fact go together. Despite the fact that we live in a day with the resurgence of gospel-centered thinking and teaching, DeYoung maintains that, “the essential Christian life is filled with weakness, yes, but capitulation, no.”
