Quote to Consider:
Belgic Confession 24. Of Man’s
Sanctification and Good Works: "We believe that this true faith
being wrought in man by the hearing of the Word of God, and the
operation of the Holy Ghost, doth regenerate and make him a new man,
causing him to live a new life, and freeing him from the bondage of sin.
Therefore it is so far from being true, that this justifying faith makes
men remiss in a pious and holy life, that on the contrary without it
they would never do anything out of love to God, but only out of
self-love or fear of damnation ..."
