Who Said That?

question%20mark.jpg"I do think that Paul actually makes a clear distinction in time between the future justification or judgment (those are the same word, basically), and present justification, which is on the basis of faith. I think he keeps those in absolute and appropriate tension throughout, because the point about justification by faith in the present is that it is the anticipation in the present, on the basis of faith, of the verdict which will be issued in the future on the basis of the entirety of the life led."

I'm with Tee - this definitely sounds like Wright.

Yeah - that's Wright. (I'm reading Piper's "The Future of Justification" right now, and I think I read that exact quote from Wright in Piper's book last night!)

You're getting soft on us, KR, this is too easy...but maybe that's the point and it's really someone else in that crowd...

That's the federal vision party line too, isn't it?

Touche. I hate when that happens.

It sounds like it's from N.T. Wright's "What St. Paul Really Said."

I'm thinking its N.T. Wright, not b/c everyone else is, but he's the first one I thought of as I read the post. But it could be anyone who just has bad theology.

So we are justified by faith in our good works...? I'm trying to understand how the quote could mean something other than that but not having much luck.

"Guessing" the Pope was to reveal Roman Catholicism's view of Justification still lives on [in the Protestant Church!!!]
