    In response, Piper shows, in careful treatment of passage after passage, that the imputation of Christ's righteousness to believers is clearly the teaching of the Bible, and if we abandon this doctrine we will also lose justification by faith alone. I am thankful to God for John Piper's defense of this crucial doctrine.". I just finished reading Counted Righteous in Christ by John Piper (, Crossway Books). In this book, Piper addresses the doctrine of imputation of Christ's righteousness (i.e. passive and active obedience), which apparently has been questioned in some modern theological dialogue. Unlike some of his other books that I read before (e.g., Desiring God, Pleasures of God), this book was not as 4/5(37).

    Since Christ’s righteousness is yours, bring forth its proper fruits, and shew publicly, that there is an inseparable connexion between justifying faith and sanctifying grace. By justifying faith the believer is united to Christ, and receives life from him, as a graft does from the stock upon which it grows.   New Perspective scholars such as N.T. Wright and E.P. Sanders have called into question, revised and even rejected this vital doctrine as it has been understood historically by Christians. In his new book “Jesus’ Blood and Righteousness: Paul’s Theology of Imputation” (Crossway), Brian Vickers unfolds from Scripture and defends the.

    On the other hand he never says in so many words that the righteousness of Christ was imputed to believers, and it may fairly be doubted whether he had this in mind in his treatment of justification, although it may be held to be a corollary [emphasis added] from his doctrine of identification of the believer with Christ.   The third imputation is when God imputes or credits to us Christ’s righteousness – his perfect law keeping to the believer. So that when looks to the believer, he does not see the believer’s sin, but rather, instead, sees the perfect law keeping, the perfect righteousness, the perfect obedience of Jesus.

We are not righteous in ourselves; rather, we possess Christ’s righteousness applied to our account. It is not our perfection, but Christ’s that God sees when He brings us into fellowship with Himself. It is God's righteousness in Christ. Or you can say it is Christ's righteousness. He takes our sin.

We take his righteousness. Fourth, consider 1 Corinthians John Bunyan said that, after that experience in the field where the imputed righteousness of Christ hit him so powerfully, he went home and looked for Biblical support.

for the Reformed doctrine that justification involves the imputation of Christ's righteousness to believers. The three main passages he considers are Romans 4; Romans ; and 2 Corinthians He exegetes each carefully, not trying to find the whole `doctrine' in each passage.

Vickers then synthesises them together. He thenCited by: 4. This book returns to the true nature of the gospel, justification by grace alone through faith alone because of Christ alone.

Fundamental to the book's argument is a rejection of the biblical truth and the faithful heritage of the gospel. By tracing the development of Reformation theology in Luther and Calvin, the giants in the American Great Awakening and the Korean revivals are brought up.

Largely a result of the emergence in recent decades of the “new perspective” on Paul is the growing denial today that the apostle teaches the imputation of Christ’s righteousness to believers. Counted Righteous in Christ is such an important book because it con- fronts this denial head-on and counters the charge that the heart of the Released on: Novem Is the imputation of Christ’s righteousness to the believer an artificial construct, an idea from systematic theology that does not truly come from the Bible.

N.T. Wright argues that the traditional view of imputation veers away from the Pauline meaning. The only hope he has for righteousness is that he receive the righteousness of Christ purchased for him on Calvary—man has his choice—to trust his own righteousness and spend eternity in Hell or to trust the righteousness of Christ, which in response to his faith will be imputed unto him, and then spend eternity in Heaven.

Graeme Goldsworthy, Gospel and Kingdom, p. 86 "In the imputation of Adam’s sin to us, of our sins to Christ, and of Christ’s righteousness to believers, the nature of imputation is the same, so that one case illustrates the other" (Hodge: Systematic Theology, ).

“ a man will be justified by faith when, excluded from righteousness. Christ paid the horrific penalty as the cup of God’s wrath was poured out upon Him.

There is also a second imputation. Christ’s righteousness is imputed to us. He not only takes our debit, but we also get His credit.

Christ paid the penalty we could never satisfy, but He also kept the law perfectly, which we can’t do either. Not only was Christ’s righteousness imputed (counted) to Abraham’s record, but Abraham’s sinful record was imputed to Christ.

Literally, Jesus became as sin for us and died a sinner’s death “For HE HATH MADE HIM TO BE SIN FOR US, WHO KNEW NO SIN; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him” (2nd Corinthians ).

This book, and its conclusion that the imputation of Christ's righteousness is a legitimate and necessary synthesis of Paul's teaching, is a valuable contribution to the ongoing debate on imputation.'Vickers's work is sure to be one of the most significant contributions to the ongoing discussion of the nature of the imputation of Christ's 5/5(1).

Imputed righteousness is a concept in Christian theology proposing that the "righteousness of Christ is imputed to [believers] — that is, treated as if it were theirs through faith.": It is on the basis of this "alien" (from the outside) righteousness that God accepts humans.

This acceptance is also referred to asthis doctrine is practically synonymous with. Christ’s Personal Righteousness Imputed. The point Paul makes about our justification is vitally important: God declared Jesus Christ righteous on the basis of His personal righteousness.

He declares believers righteous, not on the ground of any personal righteousness, but on the ground of the righteous action of Christ in His obedience. Reading through John Piper’s response to N.T. Wright, The Future of Justification (see also Piper’s objections to Wright’s ‘good news’), and not having much of a background in Reformed theology, I found myself repeatedly asking where the idea that the real moral righteousness of God is imputed to those who are in Christ actually comes from.

Chapter 3 of the book is clearly the most crucial, since this is where he offers an exegetical critique of Gundry and in the process, validates the imputation of Christ's righteousness to the believer that is central to justification. Piper's examination of Romans. In his book he answers the dilemma in this way: Imputation ought to be understood as the unmerited reception of a righteousness that belongs wholly to another, and this reception of 'alien' righteousness is facilitated through the 'un-alienation' of two parties; once believers are joined to Christ, his righteousness is shared with them.

In this. In Jesus' Blood and Righteousness, Brian Vickers investigates the key Pauline texts linked historically to the topic of imputation. Though Vickers spends a good deal of time on the particulars of each text, he keeps one eye on the broader biblical horizon; like any doctrine, imputation must be investigated exegetically and synthetically.

Are Christians merely forgiven, or do they possess the righteousness of Christ? Recently the time-honored understanding of the doctrine of justification has come under attack. Many question how-or if-we receive the full righteousness of Christ. The imputed righteousness of Christ is a gift; it cannot be earned.

This gift can only be received from a grateful heart by faith alone (Rom.28; ;Gal. ). Christ’s righteousness is not only declared to be my righteousness in heaven, but this righteousness also transforms my life here on earth.IMPUTATION OF Christís Righteousness BELIEVERS: OF In what Éence Éound ProteÜants hold it; And, Of the falÉe deviÉed Éence, by which Libertines Éubvert the Gospel.
