I had previously brought up a thread about Justification and wondered how it opperated. Most here save for a few hold that Justification is a one time event whereby we are "declaired" righteous. As in a legal proclimation with regard to the Law and its requirement. But I came accross this perspective and wanted to here a dialogue with regard to it. But not much materialized. Here is the jist of it. The NT verb dikaioo (to justify) is often viewed as a means of declaration But is this the whole of it? Can it not mean to make us righteous? That this often used verse often refer to scriptures Seems that if God declaires something it is made so. Look at creation So God's word might be So might it mean to make one righteous so that we can say and are actually made so. And that being the case this passage shows us 1) the Gospel is salvation to everyone who believes and 2) the righteous shall live by faith. Here Why does Paul emphasis doing good? So we come to faith Faith expressed in love (doing good). So that his new covenant here Through Justification in Jesus blood provide is providing this opportuninty of being made righteous and we are therefore Inserted into this felial relationship. But this is not to be confused with earning salvation or justification because of But so that we're "made" and Thoughts?
