"What is justification?" Justified "is the man into whom the LORD imputes not iniquity, whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered." "Does justification affect your salvation?" There is now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus." For the Father "hath made Him [to be] sin for us, who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him." How? "Being justified by His grace, through His faith."

Justification is God looking at me and seeing me "Just-as-if-I'd" never sinned. To be saved is to be justified.

Titus 3:7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.


Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

Ooops...I made a mistake...We are justified through faith, I was thinking of reconciliation in my last post... sorry...

Sister Killi, Protestant theology affirms that faith is the instrumental cause of Justification in that faith is the means by which the merits of Christ are appropriated to us. Catholic theology teaches that baptism is the primary instrumental cause of justification and that the sacrament of penance is the secondary, restorative cause. The sacrament of Penance requires works of satisfaction by which human beings achieve congruous merit for justification.

B. Kelli, Sanctification is a process that begins the moment we become Christians. The process continues until death when the believer is made finally, fully, and forevermore righteous. The Holy Spirit is called "the Sanctifier". That the Spirit of God is called the Holy Spirit is not so much because of His person (which is indeed holy) but because of His work, to make us holy.

C. Kelli, We do not assist the Holy Spirit in our rebirth, it is His job along, but our sanctification is a cooperative venture. We must work with the Holy Spirit to grow in sanctification. The Apostle Paul expressed this idea in his letter to the church at Phillipi.

Justification is GOD declaring mankind guilt free and acceptable to Him.This is through Faith alone in Jesus Christ.
Romans 4:25 says that Christ was delivered for our offenses and raised up on the cross for our justification.
Romans 5:1 says We are justified by faith and have peace with GOD.This is through Faith alone in Christ.

The whole world is justified by His blood, the santified are those who are saved by His life. Could this be true??

Justification means being in right standing with God. Sanctification means being made holy and righteouss.
---Matthew on 4/13/07


How does justification and sanctification differ from each other?

A True Christian is Justified by the Blood of Jesus(Rom 5:9) and therefore not condemned,because through One Man's righteous act, the FREE gift came to all men
resulting in Justification of life(Rom 5:18)
Therefore Justification cannot affect Salvation. Brian 6933

Here's how I was taught to look at the word justified Just as if I had never sinned. Jesus took our sins upon Himself and when we accept His sacrifice, we are justified in the eyes of God. Jesus is our Justification.

Justification means acquittal. Not guilty. And without it we would all be lost.
