WHOSE RIGHTEOUS?

Scripture doesn't say whose righteousness is imputed to us. It doesn't say because we are not imputed with anyone's righteousness. It is a false doctrine. It makes light of God's grace.
Yes, it does say--God's righteousness is imputed to us. We have proven that from the Scriptures themselves. "“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” ( 2 Corinthians 5:21 ).

That verse doesn't say that we have been imputed with the righteousness of Christ.

1) Christ is God:
2) The righteousness of God; the Father, the Son , and the Holy Spirit are one in the same.


Q: What are we imputed with?
A: we are imputed with "___________"

I'll make it even easier for you

A: we are imputed with "_something_"
or
A: we are imputed with "_Nothing_"

If you chose "_something_"
what is that "_something_"?

It says we become God's righteousness. That means our righteousness is His, it came from Him.

Now, back to Romans 4...what did Paul say is imputed/credited to us as Righteousness, the same as it was to Abraham? One little, but BIG word...what word is that, ding? Will you finally tell us what it is that is credited to us as righteousness?

How does it come to us.
Paul tells us in Romans 4! We get this gift if righteousness because SOMETHING is imputed/credited to us as righteousness. What is that one little, big word, ding, in Romans 4? One would almost think you are...scared to answer such a simple, easy question. Why?

Reckoned and imputed are synonyms, as we have shown you before. How many dictionary definitions must we show you, before you will admit it?
Interesting that reckoned is really an accounting term. Which means the ledgers must be balanced. If we have sins on one side of the ledger, and we know our works are not earning us righteousness. Then how is the ledger balanced, in their minds? I mean it cannot be balanced by our works, it can only be balanced by righteousness and it is only God/Jesus who have this righteousness. It is really simple to see whose righteousness is reckoned to us. The main difference is it covers us for life. And before an RC makes out that we can go and sin, it does not. That is a false understanding by RCs.

The other thing that is interesting is that it reveals that RCs strongly want to hold to what the nuns taught us there are the balance scales one with sin on it, the other with our works. But our works are not righteousness at all.
