Forgiveness Plus

"Paul in Romans and Galatians, and the Reformers after him, spoke of justification rather than of forgiveness. This is because justification is forgiveness plus ; it signifies not only a washing out of the past but also acceptance and the gift of a righteous man’s status for the future." - J. I. Packer in Affirming the Apostles' Creed
