"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."

If you obey the commandments of God, your obedience will be imputed as your righteousness. Impute does not mean transfer. But preachers like RC Sproul, Paul Washer, Sinclair Ferguson and John Piper say that impute is transfer. They twist the word of God and serve the devil.

Imputed Righteousness, False Preachers-
RC Sproul, Paul Washer, John Piper & Sinclair Ferguson

Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus, the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be upon you.

The servants of God teach the word of God, the Bible. The servants of Satan also teach the same Bible. Both of them say they serve God. So, we do not know whether the one who preaches is servant of God or servant of the devil. But we know that servants of satan twist the word of God to preach their own doctrine. So, compare the sermons with the Bible and see whether it is twisted or not. If the word of God is twisted, the one who preaches, is the servant of Satan, even if the preaching is very convincing. It is good to know who they are.

Let me show a few righteousness preachers. First we will see what is righteousness from the Bible and then study how they twist the word to fit into their doctrine. Deut 6:25 it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the Lord our God. So, if we obey God, it is imputed as our righteousness. Acts 10:35 in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him. So, God accepts righteous people. 1 John 3:7 says Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 1 John 2:29 If ye know that he (God) is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of God. So a/c to this verse, if we obey God we are righteous and we are the sons of God. 3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God. So, if we do not obey God, we are not of God and we are children of the devil. So, obedience determines whether a man is son of God or son of Satan. Sons of God inherit the kingdom of God. Sons of Satan are thrown into the lake of fire. So, this righteousness that is imputed to us for obeying God is the most important thing in our lives. But, it is very sad that some preachers call this righteousness as filthy rags and most Christians believe it!

Isa 64:4 For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him. 5 Thou meetest him that rejoiceth and worketh righteousness. So, if we work and rejoice in righteousness, that is, if we obey God and rejoice in it, God has prepared for us something that is marvelous so glorious that can't even enter our minds. God alone comprehend the greatness and the glory of the rewards he prepares for his righteous people. God will meet us on that day and present it to us, for our righteousness. But, false preachers call this righteousness as filthy rags and say it is good for nothing. It is ridiculous. Why do they preach such a lie?

Now, let us see what is actually the filthy rag. Vs 5 behold, thou art wroth; for we have sinned: 6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. 7 And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities. Sins and iniquities catch and carry these people away as winds take them, none of them even pray and God's wrath was upon them. They are ungodly people. Their righteousness is as filthy rags. Isaiah describes both the obedient and disobedient people and how God will reward the righteous obedient people and how God will punish the filthy disobedient people in one passage. But servants of satan choose to hide the account of the disobedient people and say that the best righteousness of godly people is as filthy rags. It is how they twist scriptures to deceive people. They do it on purpose to promote the doctrine of Satan. It is really sad and tragic.

Rev 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. The bride of Christ made herself ready, she did it by herself. 8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. Righteousness of saints is the obedience of godly people and it is the apparel of the Bride of Christ. It is described as fine linen clean and white. False preachers call this righteousness as filthy rags and deceive many.

Titus 3:4 ... the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost. It says that Jesus Christ appeared or came, not by our works of righteousness. Because of this statement, this verse is widely preached by the false preachers, since it is very easy to twist. The verse says that we do not have righteousness and that is why Jesus Christ came to save us. But false preachers say that we are not saved by works of righteousness. That is not what the verse says. This is how they twist scriptures. Next verse says that he washed us, regenerated us, and renewed us so that we may have righteousness and be saved. Since we did not have righteousness, Jesus Christ came to make us righteous and to save us. Rom 6:17 says But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. 18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. 22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness and the end everlasting life. That is, we receive everlasting life by our obedience, that is righteousness and holiness. But John Piper, Paul Washer and others proclaim very boldly that they are all still sinning. Vs 22 says we must be free from sin to become servants of God. So, these sin promoters are not servants of God a/c to scriptures. But they pose themselves as servants of God. Jesus Christ says in John 8:34 I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. Sin is of satan. In vs 44 Jesus tells them, Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. So a/c to Jesus Christ these preachers are children of the devil. RC Sproul, Paul Washer, Sinclair Ferguson, John Piper, and so many others twist the word of God, preach their doctrine, deceive people, commit sin and serve Satan.

RC Sproul teaches imputed righteousness. He twists the meaning of the word impute. Impute is to count as. But he gives a false meaning as if it is transplant or transfer. He says that impute righteousness means that the righteousness of Jesus Christ is transferred to you and me. It is a lie and manipulation. If we obey the commandments of God, our obedience will be imputed as our righteousness a/c to the Bible. It will not be transferred to someone else. RC Sproul starts the topic by asking a question, in what ground God will say that you are just or righteous, in fact while you are not just, or righteous? It is a crooked question. God is the truth. God will never call a man just while he is not just, but Satan will. His god may be Satan. In order to twist the Bible, RC Sproul use, 2 Cor 5:21. It says For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. He explains this verse as Jesus Christ takes our sins and in its place he gives his righteousness. It is total stupidity. But this verse actually says, Jesus did not commit any sin, God made him the lamb of God for the sins of the world, so that he may make the obedient as the righteousness of God. They abide in Jesus Christ. Further, if we are sinning, we cannot be in him because no sin can be in him. Even these preachers are not in him. But they teach a cliché to say that we are in Christ. It is fake statement. RC Sproul teaches to keep on sinning and confessing the name of Jesus, so that Jesus may give his righteousness and take our sin to himself. This is the trick of the devil to keep us in sin, and nothing else.

Paul Washer says when a person becomes a Christian, righteousness of Christ is imputed to him. It is lie and fabrication of Satan. Then he says: When you believe in Christ all your sins are forgiven in virtue of the cross- it was granted and you were declared righteous before God. In Christ you are righteous and are pure, that is what you are now. So a/c to Paul Washer, because you just believed that Christ existed, your sins are forgiven and all the glory of heaven is given to you free. This is a fake promise from Satan. It is total deception.

Then he says, Man has two problems. 1. He is under condemnation of sin. 2. He is under the power of sin. But when you believe that Christ has died on the tree and was resurrected, the condemnation of sin is gone for ever. You are accepted in him, you are righteous in him. God sees you perfect and lovely in him, not with one spot of blemish. Now your condemnation problem is removed. That is what he said. It is absurd. These are all lie and fake promises. This is why so many people love him and follow him. He is a con artist. 2 Cor 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. That is, if they are in Christ, all things become new, all the previous sinning habits are gone. If it did not happen, they are not in Christ.

Then he says, regeneration took away the power of sins from your life. Sin has no power in me. The Holy Spirit in me has regenerated me, regenerated my life, I walk in the new nature of life. So, both problems are taken care of. Paul Washer said this, but wait, before he take another breath, he said, but we all commit sin. Woe, then what is the new nature he got. He sinned before and he is sinning now. Nothing new. Was he regenerated by the Holy Spirit to keep commit Sin? It is a fake vocabulary. Jesus Christ says that you are either in light or in darkness. Nobody can be in darkness and in light at the same time. Nobody can be in Christ and in Satan at the same time. The trend of Christianity today is this. They keep sinning and keep confessing Christ at the same time and think they got it made. But, this is abomination. 2 Tim 2:19 says The Lord knoweth them that are his. And let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. It is scripture. God says that he knows and nobody can cheat him. If you say that you are of Christ, God is telling you to depart from sin. Paul Washer say that we all sin and he say that he is regenerated by the Holy Spirit in a dramatic way, and people open their mouth and swallow them all. People accept the excitement as truth. Lot of people are deceived. They think that we all can sin and we will sin and we will inherit the kingdom of God. It is very tragic.

Sinclair Ferguson says: It is the glory of the gospel that God comes to us with the righteousness of Jesus Christ to sinning people. Not only our sins are forgiven, but also the holiness of Jesus Christ has come to us. No, no, no. It is the same lie of the other men. Then he says: We actually with the same title stand before the Father, as Jesus Christ stood before God when he seated him on his right hand. That is a/c to him we will stand before God with the title of Jesus Christ and God the Father will see us as Jesus Christ. It is foolishness. Then he says that we are as righteous as Jesus Christ because that is the only righteousness we have. No, nobody has the righteousness of Jesus Christ. It is the lie of the devil. Sin and righteousness are not things. They cannot be handed over as merchandise. Can we buy 10 pounds of righteousness or 10 pounds of sin from a shop? If we obey God, we have righteousness. If we do not obey God we have sin. These cannot be transferred from one person to another. Jesus Christ did not talk our sins. He did for our sins to become the author of salvation to forgive the repented people and to punish the unrepented people. They talk foolish fake vocabulary and deceive many people.

John Piper also says: God declares us to be righteous while we are actually unrighteous. No, God will not lie. Then he says: All sins, past present and future are thrown in the sea of forgetfulness. No, forgiveness is for the past sins only a/c to Romans 3:25. When your sinning become past, Jesus Christ forgives your past sins. Again he says: Faith being reckoned as righteousness means that there is an alien righteousness in Christ which is credited to our account. There is no such a thing as alien righteousness. It is a fabrication of Satan. Then he says: Your legal standing before the judge is as secure as the righteousness of his son. No, the wrath of God will be upon the disobedient people. Eph 5:6 says Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Then he says: It is a magnificent exchange. Christ knew no sin, perfectly righteous, he upheld the glory of God, and Jesus said that I will take their sin. No, Jesus never said that he will take their sins. He died for the sins of the world and became the righteous Judge for the world. Acts 17:31 says he will judge the world in righteousness. 2 Tim 4:8, 1 Pet 2:23, Rev Rev 16:5, and 19:2, 11, repeatedly says that God is a righteous judge. Rev 22:12 says that he will reward a/c to their works. Then he said, you and I sin every day. Wow, what a witness of a so called servant of God and his followers? Jesus Christ said that all sinning men are of the devil. Unless we overcome sin by the love, grace, power and the spirit of God, we will remain as the children of the devil. It is God's truth.

We just saw RC Sproul, Paul Washer, Sinclair Ferguson, and John Piper, all preach false teachings deliberately. They pose themselves as servants of God. These men repeat these lies so much and brain wash people. They work for Satan. 2 Cor 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. A/c to this verse their end will be terrible. But, they will deceive so many Christians prior to their damnation. If you are not careful, you may be also deceived. So, be careful. You don't have to be deceived.

Let me summarize what I have said so far. Our obedience to God is our righteousness. This righteousness is holy; gives us eternal life; accepts us as sons and daughters of God, or bride of Christ; gives us honor, glory, and unimaginable rewards from God, and Jesus Christ will come in person to receive us in his kingdom. But servants of Satan call this righteousness as filthy rags. They preach lies and give fake promises just to deceive us and to stop us from obeying God.

I have to admit that it is not that easy to obey God and to become righteous. It will be very difficult for us to obey God, if we do not have his love, his grace, his power and his spirit. So, submit to God and resist the devil, so that God may give us all of these and makes us his workmanship. Then it will be easy for us to obey him, become righteous and to inherit his kingdom as his son or as his daughter.

Thank you for listening. God bless you.

God Bless You
