I think you were very clear and absolutely right. Jerry Bridges is wrong if he is saying that it is as though we never sinned. We are sinners declared righteous, the sin hasn't disappeared, it is just that Christ's Blood atones for it, makes us acceptable to God. God will always know that we were sinners saved by grace, washed by the blood of the lamb, so how can it be as though we never sinned? If that were the case, even God would have forgotten it. Now it isn't something He dwells on, as the word says Ps. 103:12 it is as far as the east is from the west, but it is never entirely forgotten and so we always live with that stigma to the glory of His Name! Thank you for bringing it to our attention, I probably would have just read over it and never gave it much thought in effect agreeing to error.
