Accusers of the Brethren

A good piece though he twice repudiates that Brethren hold "the denial that by the
obedience of Christ believers are constituted righteous". I thought Brethren always did deny that, and instead held 'constituted righteous' was solely by the work of the Cross.

But he's being quite careful in the way he says that, isn't he? He is doing no more than quoting Romans 5:19, without explaining *how* we are constituted righteous by the obedience of Christ. As a Presbyterian, he would have wanted to refer to the imputation of Christ's righteousness, but he doesn't, and only to "the imputing of righteousness in justification" (p. 20) - but whose? Great pamphlet, by the way.
