One Response to Is Perfection Attainable In This Life? Yes and No – Jesse Morrell

  1. This is from my book, The Natural Ability of Man: A Study on Free Will & Human Nature:

    The Westminster Catechism says, “No man is able, either of himself, or by any grace received in this life, perfectly to keep the commandments of God; but does daily break them in word, thought, and deed.”

    The Bible says, “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way of escape, that ye may be able to bear it” (1 Cor. 10:13).

    The former says, “…no man is able…” while the latter says, “…ye are able…” Which one is right? Either the Bible is right or the Westminster Catechism is right, but they both cannot be right.
