Refuting Entire Sanctification

Anybody know of Scriptural verses and/or good articles written that clearly explain the errors of entire sanctification?

Just to let you know, I'm also searching myself. I found what I thought was a good article at first, but then the author started going on about people who believed in entire sanctification becoming demon-possessed.

Decided to pass on it.

Thank you in advance!
If by entire sanctification you mean that man can reach a point in this life where he does not sin...

1 John 1:8

"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us."
Good verse, and it's one I keep ready.

Part of the problem lies in the fact that Entire Sanctification is defined differently by different groups. I'm going for Wesley's proper definition.
There is nothing quite like B.B. Warfield's massive Studies in Perfectionism, two volumes in the old Oxford UP set. P&R Publishing also put out an edited edition in one volume some years ago, entitled simply Perfectionism.
