Imputed vs. Imparted Righteousness

Michael Pearl

“There is a man in my community who claims to be a preacher. He is preaching Romans 5:9 means that he is perfect. Now I know this is not true, but he has others believing this. I don’t want to see these people burn in hell because they believe this. I would appreciate any information you can give me on this matter.”

9th Grader Seeks Humility

Michael Pearl

Humility is not the trait of thinking of self as of less worth. Humility is not thinking of self at all, whether good or bad. Humility is thinking of others and seeking their advancement.
