While working on the diagram of the Aspects of Salvation I wrestled with the placement of JUSTIFICATION.
The standard on the Salvation process(es) is stated-
"Justification, Sanctification, Glorification."
While this is true, almost from the beginning of creating the diagram I realized that Justification was not an internal event. I eventually overcame my attachment to the phraseology that had become ingrained and moved to the rational application of the components.
Justification is indeed the crux of Salvation.
It will be addressed in the following posts.
