50) They deny the Imputation of the Righteousness of Christ to the believer.

IMPUTATION:

When Jesus told us that unless our righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and the Pharisees, he clearly meant to anyone in the Spirit we must have the righteousness of Jesus imputed to us for our salvation.

1) The imputation of the righteousness of Christ

2) Quote "The Lord our righteousness"

old version

50) They deny the imputation of the righteousness of Christ to the believer, and the concept of "The Lord our righteousness." 

Again, this is not specifically mention in the "Jesus Saves Gospel". A new believer or "babe in Christ" does not have to specify a doctrine on this issue, to be in a present state of salvation through belief in (to "trust in" and "rely upon") Christ. Do I believe the only righteousness I have is that given me as a gift through Christ? And that his righteousness "exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees"? Yes. But I do not believe it is a specific doctrine to be believed or professed to be in a state of salvation, that is if you died then and there you would be saved by Christ because of his finished work on Calvary and his resurrection.
