Episode 11.1: Justification Defined

Les-28-justification-regverdigmaking-2

How does this chapter on justification connect with the one on effectual calling? Can you give us a bird’s eye view of the whole chapter? What is justification and how has it theologically developed over the years? This paragraph says “not by infusing righteousness,” why is that important? What is noteworthy about this definition of justification? Tune in as Nathan, Shawn, Joel and Kyle discuss WCF 11.1:

Those whom God effectually calls, He also freely justifies; not by infusing righteousness into them, but by pardoning their sins, and by accounting and accepting their persons as righteous; not for any thing wrought in them, or done by them, but for Christ’s sake alone; nor by imputing faith itself, the act of believing, or any other evangelical obedience to them, as their righteousness; but by imputing the obedience and satisfaction of Christ unto them, they receiving and resting on Him and His righteousness by faith; which faith they have not of themselves, it is the gift of God.
