Part Six, God’s Freedom examines Romans 6:1 – 7:25. In these chapters, the apostle Paul describes the concept of Christian liberty, including the believer’s freedom from sin, the freedom from the law, the freedom unto holiness, and the freedom to be a servant of righteousness. Among the 19 messages are “A Call to Holy Living,” “From Death to Life,” “Living with the Risen Christ,” and “The Essentials of Christian Conduct.”

“Justification and sanctification are as inseparable as a torso and a head. You can’t have the one without the other. God does not give ‘gratuitous righteousness’ apart from newness of life. While justification, in its action, has nothing to do with sanctification, it does not follow that sanctification is not necessary. ‘Without holiness no man shall see the Lord’ (Heb. 12:14). Holiness starts where justification finishes; and if holiness does not start, we have the right to suspect that justification has never started.” (Pages 11–12)

“The word ‘baptize’ means, metaphorically, a change of identity, or, to identify.” (Page 33)

“And to regard justification as possible without continuing righteousness is to turn the grace of God into lasciviousness (Jude 4). God does not give righteousness apart from newness of life.” (Page 11)

“The Christian never accounts himself free from the moral government of the law, though he knows himself free from its condemning sentence.” (Page 12)

“The first question arose in part from those who imagined that God was teaching a justification that did not involve sanctification. While the two are distinct and must be sharply differentiated, we cannot separate them. Any attempt to make justification dependent upon sanctification is to rob grace of its freeness and to add works to saving grace.” (Page 11)

Donald Barnhouse (1895–1960) pastored the historic Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia for 33 years. He studied at several schools, including Biola, Princeton Seminary, Eastern Seminary, and the University of Pennsylvania.

Out of a desire to spread God’s Word to a large audience, Barnhouse began a radio broadcast that featured preaching. That radio program, The Bible Study Hour, was heard on over 400 stations and was later telecast. The program continues to air today under the name Dr. Barnhouse & the Bible. Because of the radio program’s popularity, Barnhouse was asked to speak at many Bible conferences.

In 1931, Barnhouse founded the monthly magazine Eternity. For over 30 years, he wrote a column in every single issue. He has also written several books, including the titles in Expositions of Bible Doctrines: Taking the Epistle to the Romans as a Point of Departure (4 vols.).
