Christian Perfection

Christian Perfection – A commentary by Frank L. Hoffman

A commentary on John Wesley’s book, A Plain Account of Christian Perfection
By: Frank L. Hoffman
Jesus said, “Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” (Matthew 5:48)

Christian Perfection

This Christian perfection is seen in Isaiah’s prophecy of the Peaceable Kingdom (Isaiah 11:6-9). It was not just for some future heavenly existence, it was for this earth, too, and it was also possible to achieve it in our present or near future time.

And the wolf will dwell with the lamb,
And the leopard will lie down with the kid,
And the calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
And a little boy will lead them.
Also the cow and the bear will graze;
Their young will lie down together;
And the lion will eat straw like the ox.
And the nursing child will play by the hole of the cobra,
And the weaned child will put his hand on the viper’s den.
They will not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain,
For the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord
As the waters cover the sea.
