Salvation is the healing from sin

“The whole creation, as it will be completed in the new heaven and the new earth, is the fruit of the work of Christ.”

Herman Bavinck, Reformed Dogmatics, 3:380.

“Salvation is re-creation because salvation is simply the elimination of sin–now, in its condemnation; progressively, in its power; and one day, in its entire presence.”

Dane Ortlund, “‘Created Over a Second Time’ or ‘Grace Restoring Nature?’ Edwards and Bavinck on the Heart of Christian Salvation.” The Bavinck Review 3 (2012): 18.
