    I might agree that "iimputed righteousness" is a misnomer on the basis that the English word 'righteousness' has no equivalent in Greek or Hebrew. The Latin etymology basically signifies "full of...

    Dear Robert!

    In your message you once again confirmed the main points of your position. This position can be called classical in theology. This is so from the "Church fathers" to scholastics and...
  9. What does the imputed righteousness of Christ mean to you?

    I don't think I've ever heard two people describe the imputed righteousness of Christ in the same way. Its not a phrase that exists in the Bible. So, my question is, how would you describe it? What...
