Paul Hughes I’ve read most of your work (and successfully refuted all of it) on this topic At the end I get the feeling you do not have good grasp on the Pentecostal doctrine of sanctification and how it became foundation for the Assemblies of God in 1914. Sorry to be so bluntly direct with the truth, brother

Terry Wiles Terry Wiles says:

Here is the AoG statement.

Now we are into fake news in order to support our different doctrinal bias?

Paul Hughes Paul Hughes says:

I also quoted the other day from Stanley Horton’s grandmother’s testimony from Azusa Street:

“They told her that could not have been the Pentecostal baptism, because as a good Baptist she had not sought an experience of sanctification first. She was comforted, however, when my mother knelt down to seek to be ‘sanctified’ and began immediately to speak in other tongues, even though she had not seen anyone receive the Baptism before. This happened to so many that the majority of those who spread out from the Azusa Street Mission soon dropped the doctrine of ‘sanctification’ as a ‘second definite work.’ One act of dedication is never enough but neither are two. We must continue with daily and repeated consecrations.”

Paul Hughes Paul Hughes says:

I disproved your unfounded theory about 3 times already. The A/G Bylaws, as I mentioned, not only does not endorse ES but under the “Disapproved” section, denounces the following:

Art. IX, B, Section 2. Legalism
a. Matters of conscience. The Assemblies of God strongly affirms that the
Scriptures teach a life of “holiness without which no man shall see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14). However, since sincere commitment to holy living sometimes results in sharp differences of opinion among believers on debatable matters of personal conscience, the Assemblies of God disapproves the practice of pressing these debatable matters of personal conscience upon others (Romans 14:1–4).
b. Adding conditions to salvation. The Assemblies of God strongly affirms that
salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8,9). Therefore, the Assemblies of God disapproves any teaching or practice that seems to add conditions to salvation (Galatians 3:1–5).

Moreover, I already proved to you that nowhere in the A/G Constitution & Bylaws does the term, “Entire Sanctification,” or an variant of it occur.

Paul Hughes I feel this is a good expose of this problem in ministry. Sure it foes not equate your convictions or the confusion details in your article, but is nevertheless The Biblical Truth on entire sanctification as we know it!
