Imputation, from Scofield Reference Notes (1917)

(Note: Online, interactive quizzes with automatic scoring for these topics from Scofield are available; surf to the index of quizzes or quiz on imputation.)

Imputation is the act of God whereby He accounts righteousness to the believer in Christ, who has borne the believer’s sins in vindication of the law.

(See Scofield "Philemon 1:18") .

Philemon 1:18 If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account;

Philemon 1:17-18 perfectly illustrate imputation: “Receive him as myself”--reckon to him my merit; “If he hath wronged thee or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account”-- reckon to me his demerit.
