Question: What does "sanctification" mean? Answer: The common teaching today is that a person who is "sanctified" is spiritually perfect - that he is incapable of sinning! "Sanctification" is glibly called an "experience" or a "second work of grace," and it always must follow what is called the "justification" of the individual. It is further contended that this experience removes the "Adamic nature," or the "nature to sin." Is this what the Bible teaches? First, notice the definition of "sanctification": It means "to consecrate to a sacred office or calling," to "separate from common use," to "devote or dedicate to God's service," according to the Biblical and English dictionaries. That means that any person who is set apart for a holy use or purpose is sanctified. But that does not mean that person cannot sin!
