Theology Thursday #1

Welcome to the first Theology Thursday!

Up first we have R.C. Sproul (in his early feisty days) teaching on Double Imputation. It’s so good, hope you enjoy!

As Sproul says in the video, “…this is elementary, I don’t mean to be insulting your intelligence, but we gotta get this.” He’s right! It’s my prayer that this makes you think about how you talk about Jesus to students.

I like how John Piper puts it in one of his sermons:

“When Paul says in Romans 4:22 (and verses 3, 5, and 9) that “faith is credited as righteousness,” he does not mean that our faith is our righteousness. He means that our faith unites us to Christ so that God’s righteousness in Christ is credited to us.”

Double Imputation points out that everyone got what they didn’t deserve. On the cross, Jesus was imputed our sin (which He didn’t deserve), and we were imputed His righteousness (that we didn’t deserve).

Amen? Amen. Now go preach it!
