(Phil. 2:9-11) 7. Justifying Faith a. The universal meaning of the gospel of Christ for Jews and Gentiles is founded on the character of Gods justifying righteousness, which is pre-existing and has no preconditions. b. Because justification has no preconditions there are no privileges for the one, and no disarrangement of the other. c.
