Lecture 6, A Cleansing Birth:
This lecture is free to stream through April 30, 2016.
God’s redemptive purpose is to transform the entire person into the image of Jesus Christ. Because humanity’s fall into sin has had a pervasive polluting effect upon human nature, God’s grace also extends to every part of the inner self, making the regenerate person into a new creation. A crucial aspect of the new birth, therefore, is the Holy Spirit’s act of cleansing a sinner. All ungodliness is washed away and replaced with a genuine hunger for God. In this lecture, Dr. Lawson will examine the Bible’s teachings about the profound spiritual cleansing that people experience at the new birth.
