Righteousness in Christ

brettbarclay's picture

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.

What about just what the bible says?

Like, for starters,

"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." 2 Cor. 5:21.

And, giving us, in a minor way, the foundation of righteousness in Jesus Christ, in grace versus law...

"But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away: How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious? For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory. For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth. For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious. 2 Cor. 3:7-11...Shotgun Bill
