God’s Assistance

(p.243) 10 God’s Assistance
The Moral Gap


Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the central Christian doctrines about the assistance God offers in bridging the moral gap. These doctrines are those of atonement, justification, and sanctification. It argues in defence of an understanding of atonement in terms of penal substitution by making central the notion of man’s incorporation into Christ. The discussion on justification and sanctification avoids the doctrines of negative justification and essential righteousness and focuses on the corporate nature of the new life in Christ.

Keywords:   God, moral gap, atonement, justification, sanctification, penal substitution, Christ
