Rome confuses justifying faith with sanctifying faith. Justifying faith is in relationship to the declaration of the gospel and by necessity of the very nature of the gospel must be completely passive in regard to any kind of personal participant activity or contributions in obtaining the propitiation that the gospel reveals has already been obtained and can only be obtained solely and only by the personal activity, contributions and participation of Jesus Christ for his people and in the place of his people. Justifying faith embraces, accepts and rests entirely upon that good news as either failure to receive it or any exerted action to acheive what the Christ already acheived is disobedience to the gospel. Receiving, embracing and resting upon it is obedience to the gospel. This is the "rest" Jesus calls His people unto. Inclusive in the object of faith is the personal righteousness of Christ provided in the personal life of Christ and the payment of sin by His death which sin payment and righteousness are imputed and thus received by faith providing complete and finished legal satisfaction for the believer before God - this is justification by faith. In contrast, sanctifying faith is the SAME FAITH but not in response or in relationship to the things only Christ could provide as revealed in the gospel but in regard to the things revealed in God's word that we are commanded to obey in our own person and in our own life by means of regenerative love and the indwelling power of the Spirit of God. The former type of faith would be disobedience and rejection of the finished work of Christ if it included our own participant works whereas the latter would be disobedience and rejection of the revealed will of God if we did not include our own participant works. Rome fails to distinguish between the two and then charges us with denial of one of the two.
