D. G. Barnhouse: The Righteousness of God

"God is righteousness, God demands righteousness, and God provides righteousness. 

If those three statements are understood, then the whole gospel will be understood. If those three statements are not understood, then the gospel can never be understood. 

Wherever there is heresy, men have departed from the idea that God is righteousness, and that therefore He must demand that righteousness of all His creatures; and, that since none can have it apart from Him, because His nature is also love, He provides His righteousness in His way."
