alien righteousness

Taken from Concise Reformed Dogmatics – J. van Genderen & Velema

From CRD,

With Trimp we can say that the objective of preaching is the proclamation of the acquittal of sinners through the blood of Christ. This news is both incredible and entirely credible. This message is always “news,” because it is ever new. We “know” it well, and yet it continually needs to be reinforced. Faith consists in continually appropriating the promise of the Gospel, always entrusting ourselves anew to the God of the promise (Trimp, 1985, 17ff.). (761)
