    excellent ‘About Us’ – thank you.

    As you say ‘iustitia aliena’ as the correct doctrine of justification was nailed at the Reformation. But, as for sanctification, can you kindly expand on the various ‘righteousnesses’ once someone is regenerated. For many, imputed righteousness is then slowly replaced, at least in part, by an infused righteousness – the result of obeying the call to holiness

    Is the ‘obedience of faith’ a single-minded focus on Christ letting the works look after themselves (obedience to faith) or is it a double-barreled focus first on Christ and then turning one’s hand to the works He commands (obedience from faith)?

      I recommend Machen’s what is faith. Also the Westminster standards and the Belgic Confession, Sanctification.

      Robert Godfrey does an excellent job in distinguishing law and gospel, in a lecture titled, “Pleasing God” in this lecture he mentions the Belgic Confession.

      Here’s the lecture: http://vimeo.com/21809228?ab

      Hope this helps.
