    If Christ’s obedience to the law is what makes me righteous, then I am saved by deeds of the law. Well done video. I’ve tried explaining this problem with Calvinism to people and don’t get very far. It sounds heretical to challenge this long held, oft repeated doctrine.

      Yes, I think there is a refusal to acknowledge the cognitive dissonance created by such a view that is willful. I don’t think that they believe that it actually means what it means. This is where common sense (reason) and the plain reading of scripture clashes with orthodoxy (traditions of men). They are brainwashed to the point where they are afraid to change their view of justification because they fear that 1> they would have to acknowledge that they believe a false gospel, or 2> to abandon their long-held belief they might actually be abandoning the “faith”.

      Jeff,

      Exactly. It’s almost too obvious. The Bible NEVER makes a point of WHO keeps the law…the point is LAW period. Jesus keeping the law for righteousness is still righteousness by the law, and not a righteousness manifested “APART” from the law. In addition, RC’s idea that Jesus was made righteous by His perfect law-keeping makes chills run up your spine. It’s outright naked heresy.

      Oh, and BTW, it makes love performed by the Christian works righteousness. The so-called Christian must live by faith alone in sanctification for continued imputation of Christ’s righteous to us in order to maintain our “just standing” lest we have a “righteousness of our own.” It all turns the gospel completely upside down.
