Eternal security imputed righteousness is a doctrine that is both fiercely hated by knowledgeable Christians, and lovingly embraced by the once saved always saved proponents. For advocates of once saved always saved, imputed righteousness implies a license to sin without concern, while thinking God will always see them as righteous, even if they backslide into vile behavior. Unfortunately, many are not aware that one’s righteous standing before God because of their submissive faith in Jesus Christ can later be destroyed. The righteous can die spiritually. Because this is factual, being shown with many New Testament casualties, one must be mindful of the various spiritual safeguards throughout Scripture given to prevent this. Much more detail is provided by Dan Corner on imputed righteousness.
