God's Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, by Quine

Molnár József: Ábrahám kiköltözése God's Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, by QuineRomans 4:3-6 and God's Great Accounting
Every month I add up my expenses, and measure them against my income. I do a reckoning. The word “reckon” is an accounting term that pictures balance sheets. It is this term that Paul uses when he quotes Genesis, writing, “Abraham believed God and it was reckoned to him for righteousness.” Like Abraham, our balance sheet has negative righteousness. We need an infusion of capital… to be reckoned with the absolute righteousness of God. So Paul concludes, “The one who believes in him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is reckoned as righteousness.” This is Dr. Jay Quine, remember this word “reckoned” and by faith in Christ be credited with the righteousness of God.
