Christian Cyclopedia

About the Cyclopedia


Term used by some dogmaticians with reference to Adam's sin and Christ's righteousness. Accordingly, Adam's sin is described as so attributed to every man as to be considered, in the divine counsels, each man's own and rendering him guilty; the righteousness of Christ is so attributed to a believer as to be considered his own and to justify him.
