Re: Is sanctification an event, a process, or both?
Good passage, Episcopos. This shows that God chastens His children so that they can grow in practical holiness, and yield more fruit. I see no contradiction between Christ's once for all work of sanctification and the process of growing in holiness. One is the seed and the other is the fruit.
