    “Doctrine in Development is a remarkable work of scholarship that treats a most important subject: the imputation of the active obedience of Christ. This volume stands as a testimony to the vitality and depth of Brazilian theological education today, and yet it is also a personal achievement. The author summed up what was said in this way, "When Dr. Machen talked about the active obedience of Christ, he was speaking of the entire and thoroughgoing obedience of Christ to the commands, laws, decrees, and ordinances of his heavenly Father. In short, Jesus obeyed the entire law of God in every respect, doing all that God required.

    Upon concluding this examination, he takes up the discussion on the active and passive obedience of Christ. He states that all obedience contains both elements, and that Christ s obedience was passive in that He voluntarily accepted God s wrath against sin and active in that He willingly bore the just penalty for sin (p. ).5/5(1). The Active and Passive Obedience of Christ by John | Posted on J Recently I was teaching through a passage of Scripture on the active role of believer’s in their sanctification (as opposed to any false notion of passive sanctification), particularly as it pertains to godliness in this life (see 2 Peter ).

    "[Christ] perfectly met both the penal and the preceptive requirements of God's law. The passive obedience refers to the former and the active obedience to the latter. Christ's obedience was vicarious in the bearing of the full judgment of God upon sin, and it was vicarious in the full discharge of the demands of righteousness. His obedience becomes the. In fact, one criticism against this book would be the lack of space devoted to the idea of Christ s perfect obedience counting for the believer. Aside from that minor criticism, the book more than ably wades its way through the deep waters of rich justification texts, namely three: Rom , Rom , and 2 Cor /5(1).

The imputation of Christ's active obedience is a doctrine within Lutheran and Reformed theology. It is based on the idea that God's righteousness demands perfect obedience to his law. By his active obedience, Christ has "made available a perfect righteousness before the law that is imputed or reckoned to those who put their trust in him.".

The Doctrine of Passive Obedience, and Non-Resistance Stated: And Its Consistence With Theology. Passive Obedience, a treatise first delivered in three sermons to students at Trinity College, Dublin and published in as a book, is one of the main sources of knowledge concerning Berkeley’s moral philosophy.

The Active and Passive Obedience of Jesus Christ by Dr. Matthew McMahon Articles on Justification by Faith Alone Today, many Christians are turning back to the puritans to, “walk in the old paths,” of God’s word, and to continue to proclaim old truth that glorifies Jesus Christ.

The passive obedience refers to the former and the active obedience to the latter. (pp. ) Put another way, Jesus’ so-called “passive” and “active” obedience were lifelong endeavors as he fulfilled the demands and suffered the penalties of God’s law, and both culminated in the cross.

York from the throne brought the doctrine of passive obedience, long an article of Anglican faith, into sharp focus. Even before this time, however, George Hickes, an ardent High Churchman and after the Revolution a nonjuror, had expressed the doctrine in appropriate detail in The Judgment of an Anonymous Writer, a book which.

Active obedience is distinguished from passive obedience in Reformed Theology. Active obedience is Jesus' actively fulfilling all the law of God.

This active obedience is imputed to the believer when he believes; that is, God reckons to the believer the righteousness of Christ when the believer trusts in Christ and His work.

At this point in the book, it is unclear if these are a result of the death of Christ or if they demand the imputation of both the passive (death) obedience and the imputation of the active (life) of Christ, but the implications of this statement become clear as we read further.

The doctrine of the active obedience of Christ has come under attack in various quarters in the contemporary church. In Presbyterian churches, it has been questioned by some in the Federal Vision movement; in New Testament scholarship, the New Perspective on Paul has argued that this doctrine has no foundation in the Pauline text; in Baptist theology, it is denied.

Passive Obedience is contrasted with active obedience where Christ, after fulfilling the the Law perfectly, was led to the cross to be crucified in order to atone for our sins.

Robert L. Reymond defines the active obedience of Christ as:“Christ’s full obedience to all the prescriptions of the divine law [making] available a perfect righteousness before the law that is imputed or reckoned to those who put their trust in Robert L.

Reymond defines the passive obedience of Christ as:“[Christ's] willing. Get this from a library. The doctrine of passive obedience: asserted in a sermon preach'd on Janu [James Ellesby].

Calvin may not have clearly distinguished the active from the passive obedience of Christ, but there is considerable evidence that he “does teach a doctrine of the imputation of Christ’s righteousness that includes what later writers distinguished into Christ’s active and passive obedience” (35).

The distinction highlights different aspects, not periods, of Christ’s work in paying the penalty for sin (“passive obedience”) and fulfilling the precepts of the law (“active obedience”).

As Louis Berkhof puts it in his standard Systematic Theology (pp.), “The two accompany each other at every point in the Saviour’s life. Doctrine of non-resistance or passive obedience.

Out of the 4 Berkhof Summary of Christian Doctrine kindle versions available, this is the cheapest one but the other three versions are preferred over this one. This Kindle Book has no table of contents and the paragraphs are bunched together the most with the least spacing/5.

So we have a doctrine in theology that refers to the active obedience of Jesus, as distinguished from the passive obedience of Jesus.

And this doctrine is in great dispute right now particularly among dispensational thinkers, which I find extremely, extremely unsettling. In fact, Martin Luther argued that justification is the doctrine on which the church stands or falls.

For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous. (Romans ESV) Below is a short and sweet explanation of what the doctrine of the active obedience of Christ is, and why it matters to the Christian (Wayne Grudem).

I thought it was worth sharing. The Doctrine on Which the Church Stands or Falls takes its title from the Reformation era conviction that justification by faith is the dividing line between the biblical gospel and man-centered efforts to earn favor with God.

Matthew Barrett serves as editor and co-author with several significant theologians. In the forward, D.A. Carson writes that nothing is more. The imputation of the passive obedience of Christ unambiguously accomplishes everything that the so-called imputation of the active obedience of Christ was supposed to do!

This passage has another gem that we cannot pass. Christ’s passive obedience—his obedience in bearing the curse of the law for us—is the basis upon which our sins are forgiven. His death was an atoning death, and he was our substitute. Our sins were placed upon Jesus Christ on the cross and he endured the penalty for our sin in our place.
