Dake's teaching was often in opposition to early church fathers and is opposed to what many teach today in a number of biblical subjects and not just the living free from sin subject. It also is fascinating that many that claim they agree with Dake, do not agree with him about this issue in the least respect.
The more one studies this the more one should be shocked that people teach you can live in sin and have eternal life which is in opposition to what the bible teaches about it.
In my opinion, Dake did not teach anything one cannot find in the scriptures references he used. I am sure he dealt with a lot of people that believed you can sin your way to eternal life.
