But you just said our righteousness is imputed, not infused. So which is it? [/quote:3713sws9]
Yes because we are impute His rigthousness, never are we, or anyone else perfect in these corrupt bodies or have you never read Paul’s comments in Roman 3, 7 and Ephesians two?
[quote:3713sws9]2 Corinthians does not say we will be considered or declared righteous. It says we will become righteous. And not just a little righteous but the righteousness of God. That would be a full and perfect and true righteousness. [/quote:3713sws9]
Yes, but it does say that we receive it in that exchange of 2nd Corinthians 5:21 doesn’t it, so I believe it. But then you’d rather believe that someone’s else’s prayers does that? Not likely.
Such a full, perfect, and true righteousness is needed to enter heaven, as no imperfect thing will enter therein. A dung heap covered with snow is still a dung heap. Christ did not just cover us, He washed us. [/quote:3713sws9]
Well I surely won’t use that kind of logic as an excuse, or as a reason to doubt His Word but then again, Catholics do have that tendency don’t they?
