Response to The gospel you preach does NOT reveal the "righteousness of God."

 
INCquisitor:

Therefore, the gospel you preach is NOT the true gospel of Christ. The gospel you preach is NOT the power of God unto salvation for everyone who believes, as apostle Paul writes in Rom. 1:16.

Me:

Abandonment, evasion and/or simple negation and/or denial of what is said, is no refutation and a sure indicator of being without defense.

I am not the one preaching under this thread INCquitor. It's you. And what you preached here is that which is being examined. And it is apparent, that while to you, what you preach stands to your reason, it is not in keeping with scriptures as can be been in the exchanges under this thread.

You speak about the "righteousness of God". But apparently, the "righteousness of God" that you say is different and have been shown to be different. You preach that the “righteousness of God” is a law which when examined in scriptures is nowhere taught. And this is what you preach what the “righteousness of God” is:

“The soul that sins, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son; the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him” (Ezek. 18:20).

While this is a law, this is just one of the many laws found in the book of the law of Moses which includes the laws on atonement of sin, etc.

But as I have cited scriptures concerning the "righteousness of God":

Romans 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

Romans 3:21-22
21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

With the above scriptures, it is shown that the "righteousness of God" is not a law, as you teach it is. What the said scriptures tell us of the "righteousness of God" is:

1. It is, in the gospel, revealed from faith to faith: The just shall live by faith.
2. It was manifested or revealed without the law.
3. It is witnessed or testified by the law and the prophets.
4. It is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe.

The "righteousness of God" is in the gospel, revealed from faith to faith. So, for one to see in the gospel, what the "righteousness of God" is, he must look at where it is being revealed, that is, from faith to faith. One who looks at the law, and not on the faith of Jesus, he will not see it, for it is revealed without the law. The "righteousness of God" is seen and was seen by Israel, in the faith of Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Gedeon, Barak, Samson, Jephthae, David, Samuel, and of the prophets. But notwithstanding the faith of all these men of God in the past, today, in the last days, the "righteousness of God" is manifested by the faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe. So that, if one wants to see the righteousness of God, one need not look elsewhere and to no one else, but to Jesus, in whom dwells all the fullness of the Godhead.
