Get the questions and comments audibly recorded. Frustrated. It’s Q&A 101.

I realize it’s frustrating, but this was a church’s conference. They didn’t have the technical means to record the questions. They had the audio and allowed us to produce and release it after the fact. We’re just happy to have something to publish. If this was a Reformed Forum event, we would have done things differently. Regardless, I decided to let everyone have access to the answers rather than nothing at all.

Frustration noted.

Duly noted, Bill, I’ll take the fall on this one. We actually did have the means, we had a portable mic we could have used (with some difficulty and lack on quality), but didn’t. We will remedy that in the future. Thanks!

This material has been extremely helpful to me in gaining more clarity on this issue. Here’s a question I’d like some help with: Dr. Tipton says that he hasn’t seen a biblical case for the logical priority of justification over sanctification (or vice versa). But what about the structure of the Book of Romans? Paul treats the wrath of God, then justification, and then sanctification. It would seem that for Paul, there is at the very least a pedagogical priority of J over S. What do you think?

Thank you very much guys for making this series available along with the many many good discussions you guys post on this site. I found the discussion regarding the relationship between guilt and corruption in Adam thought provoking. It reminded me of the question “When does temptation become sin, or when in the thought process that leads to sin actually become sin”?
