Justified!

“Let theologians note the following distinctions. Christians were decretively justified from all eternity: efficaciously so when Christ rose again from the dead; actually so when they believed; sensibly so when the Spirit bestows joyous assurance; manifestly so when they tread the path of obedience; finally so at the Day of Judgment, when God shall sententiously, and in the presense of all created things, pronounce them so.” – Arthur W. Pink

    Pink is a genious! I’m thinking about reading is Hebrews commentary as my next reading project.

      His commentary on Hebrews is excellent. Pink makes good use of Owen who can be difficult to read.

    Andrew, have you read The Divine Covenants by Pink? Awesome read.

      Oh yes! I recommend it to everyone. I think it is top 5! I’ve not read a modern work that compares with it. I really appreciate that Pink came from a Dispy background, so we have that in common.
