Faith Necessary to Know If Righteousness Has Been Imputed To Us
Romans 3:22 –“the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe”.
Romans 4:13–“the promise did not come through the law but through the righteousness of faith….
Phil 3:9–“and be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that righteousness which comes through faith in Christ.”
Robert Haldane, p194–“there are some who, strongly impressed with the great evil of making faith a work, have plunged into a contrary extreme, as if justification were independent of faith, or as if faith were merely an accidental or unimportant thing in justification. This also is a great error. Faith is as necessary in justification as the sacrifice of Christ itself, but necessary for a different purpose.”
