"Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.2 Corinthians 7:1 ... dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."

It is strange that the word 'justification' is used by false preachers a lot more than others. They say that God calls you 'just' while you are not 'just' or God calls you righteous while you are unrighteous or committing sin. And they say that this is justification. But, God is TRUTH. He will never call unrighteous as righteous, or sinning as 'just'. Yet they preach this lie, and Christians swallow this lie with no discernment. In common vocabulary, justify may mean to call the wrong thing as right in certain situations. But, according to the Bible, God converts a wrong person to be right and it is called justify. Or, God converts an unrighteous person into a righteous person, or we may say that he will be made righteous and it is called justify or justification. But, it is not to call an unrighteous person as righteous, or to call a sinning person as saved, which are lies of the devil. But preachers will do this and just because preachers are saying this lie, it will not become truth.
God Bless You
