    a person. Thus in doctrinal language (1) the sin of Adam is
    imputed to all his descendants, i.e., it is reckoned as theirs,
    and they are dealt with therefore as guilty; (2) the
    righteousness of Christ is imputed to them that believe in him,
    or so attributed to them as to be considered their own; and (3)

    "law-place," undertook to answer the demands of justice for our
    sins. In all these cases the nature of imputation is the same
    (Rom. 5:12-19; comp. Philemon 1:18, 19).
