Righteousness in Christ

I am interested in starting a discussion on righteousness and justification and have created free resources (text and audio) aimed at helping lay-people understand these crucial Christian subjects. It is not a scholarly or academic work, but aims to inform ordinary believers, using accesible language and concepts, the vital truths of their righteousness in Christ.

With this in mind, I'd like to discuss what other believers, ministers and clergy (from varying theological and denominational persuasions) feel are the critical subjects that must be explained and 'unpacked' to help Christians understand and apply righteousness and justification truths.

I would be grateful for any input forum members are available to provide.

Good project


This looks like a very worthy project. Without getting too technical in how you word things, you probably should clarify an issue regarding the difference in how "justification" is used in the OT (based on translation from Hebrew) and how "justification" is used in the NT (based on translation from Greek), which is to say that they Hebrew and Greek words translated with the same English word are not synonymous. They do not have the same meaning, and it gets confusing in theology when OT passages using the word "justification" are incorporated in the NT teaching of "justification."

Best wishes in your project.
