Is faith “sincere obedience” or “faithfulness” or is it “resting and receiving”? Is man’s great sin not persisting in the covenant of grace through unfaithfulness or not entering into the covenant of grace through unfaith, i.e., unbelief? Do we join the covenant in order to be justified or because we have been justified? Is personal holiness (sanctification) a necessary prerequisite for salvation or a necessary benefit and consequence of salvation?
