      “Because of him [God] you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption” (1 Corinthians ). “For as by the one man’s disobedience [namely, Adam’s] the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous” (Romans ). That's the righteousness unto justification] in respect to the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; yes, to publicly declare His righteousness in the present time, that He might be just, and the One Who justifies the one who is of the faith of Jesus" (vs ).

      It's a polarizing subject. Some believe it is the "only" kind of righteousness. But others believe we have the ability to do righteousness as well. So what does imputed mean? I rarely post scripture using the King James. But I will here because it's one of the few versions that uses the word "imputed" in these verses. Bible verses about Imputed Righteousness. Romans ESV / helpful votes Helpful Not Helpful. But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it— the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe.

    God justifies those who believe in Him and whose conduct reveals their regenerate hearts. God is justified to be Judge because of His words are true (Rom ,). Good works does not meet God’s standard of righteousness. God justifies those who have faith in God and trust in the redemptive work of Jesus (Rom , 26, 28, 30; , 5; , 9.   In general, Catholic Christians will think of justification as an ongoing process while Protestant Christians will emphasize justification as a one-time event.

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.

The apostle Paul writes, “But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it—the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe” (Romans –22). Through our faith in Christ, the righteousness of God is given to us.

Get this from a library. Christ's righteousness imputed to believers, the only matter of their justification before God: xplained [sic], proved, and vindicated: in opposition to the professed sentiments of some modern apostates from genuine Calvinism.

[Israel Holly]. Imputed is a form of the word imputation that means to designate an action as reckoned or given to a person. In other words, the righteousness of Jesus is given to us when we believe in order to make us right before God.

Why is this important. Romans notes, "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." No one is good enough to. Second, look at Romans"But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe." Notice that it is God's righteousness.

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.

It is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ that we are saved, so that God the Father may view us as having the righteousness of Christ which is imputed unto us at salvation “Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God IMPUTETH righteousness.

Christ is the righteousness of God, and those who believe on Him are made the righteousness of God by being “in Christ.” We are complete in Christ (Col. ); therefore, God the Father sees us perfected forever (Heb.14). This justification is the believer’s eternal standing before God.

One of the better brief statements concerning the Reformed doctrine of “the righteousness of Christ imputed to the believer” is in John Murray’s Redemption Accomplished and link here is to his chapter on Justification, but several of the specific pages which deal with that topic are missing.

In Christian theology, justification is God's righteous act of removing the guilt and penalty of sin while, at the same time, declaring the ungodly to be righteous, through faith in Christ's atoning sacrifice.

The means of justification is an area of significant difference amongst the diverse theories of atonement defended within Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Protestant theologies. "The righteousness by which we are justified before God may in an accommodated sense be called imputative, as being righteousness either in the gracious estimation of God, since it does not according to the rigor of right or of law merit that appellation, or as being the righteousness of another, that is, of Christ, it is made ours by the.

Some describe imputed righteousness as an “umbrella” placed over the believer at the point of faith, which “covers the believer so completely, God does not see his sins.” That expression has always made me wonder how God manages to see the good things a believer does if He cannot see the sins of the believer.

And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it [believing God] was IMPUTED UNTO HIM FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS: and he was called the Friend of God. James. The word "imputed" comes from the Greek word "logizomai" (Strong's ) which could be translated as "reckon, count, charge with; reason, decide, conclude; think or suppose".

But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; for us. Acts For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

if we. Justification does not make us righteous, but rather pronounces us righteous. Our righteousness comes from placing our faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ. His sacrifice covers our sin, allowing God to see us as perfect and unblemished.

Because as believers we are in Christ, God sees Christ’s own righteousness when He looks at us. Joy in God, then, is inextricably linked to justification by faith alone. “The surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord” will not be fully enjoyed apart from being joined to Jesus by faith and having his righteousness, which far surpasses our own, as the only grounds of God’s acceptance of us.

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.

However, the principle of imputation is taught in Rowhere it is demonstrated that Adam's sin was imputed to us, and Christ's righteousness is imputed to us (vv). The Bible never defines "righteousness" in terms of perfect (sinless) obedience to all of God's commandments, nor does the Bible define "justify" as "declaring.

Righteousness is imputed because of the believer’s vital union with Christ. The believer is “in Christ” and there the righteousness of Christ is imputed to Him. The Christian is therefore legally declared just on the basis of Christ’s atoning sacrifice on the cross.

Legally we now have a perfect righteous standing before a holy and just. There is only one kind of righteousness that God accepts — and that is perfect righteousness!

Nothing else will stand in His presence on Judgment Day. Unless our righteousness is absolutely perfect, He cannot save us, justify us, recognize or accept us. Yet, is there anyone brazen enough to think he can stand before the throne of Jesus Christ and present something of his own.

This says we have become the righteousness of Christ (this is called a dependent clause in the greek - it is determined as fulfilled because Christ became sin) 2 Corinthians (KJV) [SUP] 21 [/SUP] 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.

Believers are called righteousness.It is Christ that died, yea, rather that is risen again for their justification, and in his righteousness they shall stand holy and unblameable and unreprovable before the judgment-seat of God.

Since these are some of the benefits of having on the breastplate of righteousness, let us, my Christian brethren, keep it .
