The Goal

The goal of salvation is not that people should be free of physical and spiritual bondage in order to live as they choose. The goal of salvation is fellowship with God within the parameters of his character and nature. This has been God’s goal since the tragedy of Genesis 3 and it remains so in the Christian era. The thought that the primary purpose of the Cross is forgiveness is misguided at best. — Called to be Holy, page 33
