Very much has been written on the subject of sanctification, but many of these writings were found to contain comparatively little clear teaching on the subject of sin after sanctification. Furthermore, there has existed in the minds of many with whom the writer has been personally acquainted some questions on this subject, -indicating a need for more sound instruction in this field. This study has sought to answer some of these questions. The problem here presented was: Can a fully sanctified person sin? If so , how Should sin after sanctification be explained doctrinally, and how can it be prevented experientially?
It was the purpose of this study to try to determine clearly and accurately what the Scriptures teach concerning the extent to which salvation from sin is possible in this life .
