Paul's Passing Thoughts

R. C. Sproul’s Double Imputation Doublespeak.

Posted in Uncategorized by Andy Young, PPT contributing editor on August 9, 2018

There are a number of things that are disturbing about what Sproul says here:

1. Jesus Christ had no righteousness UNTIL He kept the law perfectly!
2. The real meaning of “double imputation” means our sin is imputed to Christ and His OBEDIENCE is imputed to us.
3. This means the standard for righteousness is perfect law-keeping.
4. This is heresy because the Bible says that righteousness is APART from the law! (Romans 3:21, 28).
5. “Redemption” is conflated with “salvation”.

So according to authentic protestant orthodoxy, not only do believers have no righteousness of their own, but EVEN JESUS had no righteousness of His own!  In other words, Jesus was not righteous because He was the Son of God, He was only righteous because He kept the law perfectly!!!

You people who call yourselves “christians” and go to church every Sunday and listen to garbage like this week after week and read all manner of books from authors like this, you might want to rethink some things!

    Listen, even if Jesus had performed cartwheels on the Sabbath, He was still God and the Son of God; nothing was ever going to change that . . . end, end, end. R.C. Sproul was a devil . . . end, end, end.

    And besides, Jesus picked corn and performed miracles on the Sabbath, so He didn’t obey the law perfectly. So i guess that means He wasn’t righteous after all.

      Yes, Andy, even while Jesus was among them did they not understand His role. And their confusion has since grown. They sing ‘In Christ alone,” but what does that “alone” really mean?
      If they want to play by their rules, I see no eternal future for them. Harsh? No, reality.

    Since Jesus is a part of the trinity could he have sinned while he was on earth?

      Could it really be said that Jesus kept the law perfectly, or better said that he loved perfectly?
