I am with Pil, though I don't see why his use of it might be questionable. Of course, he's the best one to tell us why he is using it). But that's not really the point. The problem most have with the definition of justification as "just as if I'd never sinned" is because it leaves out imputation, a doctrine that is very important because a denial of it, in my thinking, leads to neonomianism/New Perspectivism. We not only do the things we shouldn't do but we also don't do the things we should do! Jesus, Thy blood and righteousness, my beauty are, my glorious dress!


True godliness is a sincere feeling which loves God as Father as much as it fears and reverences Him as Lord, embraces His righteousness, and dreads offending Him worse than death~ Calvin
