There are many opinions regarding what constitutes spiritual maturity. There are those on the extreme poles of the issue. One teaching is that Christian maturity is perfection (known as perfectionism). On the other side, there are those who maintain that maturity is complete liberty (libertarianism). The first view places sanctification emphatically in the present failing to see that sanctification is a process. The other pushes sanctification to the future only. Both of these are misunderstanding biblical evidence. There are many others who associate, often unintentionally, maturity with charismatic gifts, evangelism, or spiritual busyness. What does it mean to be mature? What are the criteria for gauging? How can we grow in the Spirit to become mature Christians bringing glory to God by our lives?
