On this page you will find Bible verses, a few quotations and introductory comments that you will find helpful in learning about righteousness by faith. Further down this main page on righteousness by faith you will find a long list of questions that are answered. Be sure to go through these answers, for carefully researched studies are found that sometimes number in more than 100 pages.
Here is a brief excerpt from the introductory page:
"The experience of righteousness by faith brings a new longing for God, gives a new standing with God, provides a new connection with God through Christ, brings "right-doing" by faith, enables a new victory that comes as a result of the presence of Christ in a person's life through the instrumentality of the Holy Spirit, and brings about an overall transformation that is so complete, that it is described as an impenetrable fortress."
This is a condensed version of a longer compilation made on the victorious life that comes through the righteousness of Christ. I use both a shorter and longer version in seminars. This reflects many years of study and is very helpful.
Crown Or Crucify
I STOOD alone at the bar of God,
In the hush of the twilight dim,
And faced the question that pierced my heart:
"What will you do with Him?"
"Crowned or crucified—which shall it be?"
No other choice was offered me.
I looked on the face so marred with tears
That were shed in His agony.
The look in His kind eyes broke my heart,—
'Twas full of love for me.
"The crown or the cross," it seemed to say;
"For or against Me—choose thou today."
He held out His loving hands to me,
While He pleadingly said, "Obey.
Make Me thy choice, for I love thee so;
"And I could not say Him nay.
Crowned, not crucified, this must it be;
No other way was open to me.
I knelt in tears at the feet of Christ,
In the hush of the twilight dim,
And all that I was, or hoped, or thought,
Surrendered unto Him.
Crowned, not crucified, my heart shall know
No king but Christ, who loveth me so.
