On my way to work this morning I listened to the first of a three part series called “Recovering Mother Kirk” by church historian Darryl Hart. The title of the lecture is “The Crisis of Reformed Identity.” He makes a point about older Reformed Christians on conversion that I thought strange. Hart claims that Reformed theology historically has not viewed conversion as an instantaneous event that occurs once in the life of the believer, rather it is a lifelong process. He said that conversion is akin to sanctification. Sadly, he only alluded to some of the earlier Confessions but did not point to anything or anyone in particular. The statement is made around 40-45 minutes into the lecture. Would any of you who may read this blog have any thoughts as to who would have articulated this? Do you agree with Hart on this? It is a very interesting statement to make.
