Sanctification by Faith Alone

Some Hebrew-Roots people concede that justification is by faith - but claim sanctification is by the Torah.

But Paul told the Galatians that having begun in the Spirit (that is by faith, by the Gospel), it was foolish of them to think they could now be perfected by the flesh (that was, by rituals of the Law).

The thing that saved us in the first place, is the same thing that will take us on to perfection! 

Which is Jesus, not the Torah.

Faith, not ritual.

Paul also told the Hebrews that " one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified".

So sanctification also - not only justification - is provided by faith in Jesus Christ - not by the rituals of the Torah.
