We are not supposed to ask? I did not question his ability. But do we need any sanctification in order to achieve salvation? Do we require any infusion of grace to be saved? Bahnsen said "... salvation is not exhaustively circumscribed by God's pardon of, and the imputation of Christ's righteousness to, the sinner". But it seems to me that our salvation is based on "the imputation of Christ's righteousness" alone. Nothing more is needed for salvation.
