Who Justifieth the Ungodly

Idolater

"Never believe anyone who is not cross-examined."
How can they repent of sins that they dont have charged to them ? Their sins have been purged away. God remembers them no more, He doesnt lay them to their charge. Heb 1:3
So again, does this mean therefore, that the Lord has nothing for us to do for the remainder of our lives on the Earth? What does the Lord have for us to do, in this life? If we are elect, and all your saying about us is true, what do we do now? Is your answer literally, do whatever we want? Or is it something else?

This thread isnt about the christian life, its about How Christ Justified the ugodly by putting away their sins Heb 9:26

26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.

Im not here talking about what men need to do, but what Christ did !

3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:

Rom 4:
7 Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.

8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.

Jer 50:20


In those days, and in that time, saith the Lord, the iniquity of Israel shall be sought for, and there shall be none; and the sins of Judah, and they shall not be found: for I will pardon them whom I reserve.
I am not familiar with your religion, so will drop out of this discussion now.

Rom 5:18 shows us Justification solely by Christs death

Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.

The one act of Christ dying on the Cross for the sins of Gods elect people, resulted in their Justification of life.

Justification is a free gift to all whom Christ died !

Rom 5:16

16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.

By Christs one obedience, in contrast to the one who sinned, our natural father adam, resulting in condemnation, yet in contrast, Christs suretyship acts for those He was spiritual father and head/surety, resulted for them, Justification as a free gift. The free gift of acquittal and acceptance into the favor of God !

Yep...All we have to do is accept it, along with all the other gifts from God.
Like the gift of repentance from sin, baptism in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, the gift of the Holy Ghost, the gift of tongues, etc.

Wrong It has nothing to do with what we do. It depended on what Christ did, as it depended on what Adam did for the opposite result.

God is the one who provides salvation.

God is not the one who accepts that salvation. That is on us.

Our accepting of the salvation God alone provides is NOT meritorious, it doesn't earn us the salvation.

God freely provides it to those who accept it, no requirement to obtain it.

In Rom 5:16 the free Justification gift is solely the result of what Christ did, has nothing to do with what anybody did.

Yes, that's what I said.
No, its not. You made a condition to receiving the gift of righteousness:

God freely provides it to those who accept it,

Rom 5:16 doesnt say anything like that, it reads:

16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.

The free gift is unto justification, period ! It has nothing to do with the recipients accepting it, its not even a tangible object. Justifification is a legal matter made by a Judge, its a judicial matter, and its located at the Throne of Gods Law and Justice, for its God alone that Justifieth Rom 8:33

33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.


So its not about accepting it, Its Gods gracious verdict to them Christ died for !

Without receiving, there is no giving.
"IT" has everything to do with what we do.
You can go to the store and try to give ten dollar bills to folks all day long, but if nobody accepts one, you haven't given away anything.
If we don't accept God's gifts, it profits us nothing.
And by accepting I mean turning away from sin and unto God.
Did Hitler, Mao, or Stalin accept God's gracious gifts?
NO, so will they be saved on the day of judgement?
No.

It pains me to see you relying on such a doctrine.
To me, it is like window-shopping.
We can see all the wonderful goods, but we can't take them.
I pray you will one day accept the wonderous offerings of Jesus Christ my Lord.

No, its not.

Yes, it is exactly what I said. Compare:

... the free Justification gift is solely the result of what Christ did,

the salvation God alone provides

And:

has nothing to do with what anybody did.

Our accepting of the salvation . . . is NOT meritorious, it doesn't earn us the salvation.

God freely provides it to those who accept it, no requirement to obtain it.

You made a condition to receiving the gift of righteousness:

So you believe in unconditional salvation?

Rom 5:16 doesnt say anything like that, it reads:

16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.

The free gift is unto justification, period!

Again, God alone provides the free gift. But He doesn't accept the free gift for us. That responsibility falls to us.

It has nothing to do with the recipients accepting it, its not even a tangible object.

So what? When a couple says "I do" at the altar, they aren't accepting a "tangible object," yet their acceptance of each other is life changing, yet they aren't doing anything other than accepting.

Justification is a legal matter made by a Judge, its a judicial matter, and its located at the Throne of Gods Law and Justice, for its God alone that Justifieth Rom 8:33

33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.

So its not about accepting it, Its Gods gracious verdict to them Christ died for!

You're conflating two issues here.

Again: GOD ALONE justifies.

However, we are not justified until we put our faith in Christ. No, that does not mean that the act of putting our faith in Him is what justifies us, it just means we want to be justified. God, not man, said that those who put their faith in Him will be justified, not because their faith merits or earns the justification, but because God determined that He would justify those who have faith.

To be Justified by Faith,

Thats is when a Justified person comes into a spiritual apprehension/knowledge and enjoyment of the Justification and reconciliation which Christ has wrought for us to God, so by Faith we come to know Spiritually that God is our God, and we are in His favor . Our Faith didn't cause that, but reveals and receives that.

We receive Justification by Faith when Gods sentence of Justification He has for us because of the blood of Christ shed for us, when that sentence terminates in our sanctified hearts and minds, which persuades us to believe in Jesus Christ. So we receive Justification by the effectual persuasion of our minds and hearts to believe in Jesus for what He has already accomplished. Read what Paul says here 1 Thess 1:5

For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.

The word assurance is the greek word plērophoria:

  1. full assurance, most certain confidence,
    • to be persuaded, persuaded, fully convinced or assured

So to be Justified by Faith is when we have been persuaded that God Justifed us on the basis of Christs blood Rom 5:9

9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
