From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Justification
    a forensic term, opposed to condemnation. As regards its nature,
    it is the judicial act of God, by which he pardons all the sins
    of those who believe in Christ, and accounts, accepts, and
    treats them as righteous in the eye of the law, i.e., as
    conformed to all its demands. In addition to the pardon (q.v.)
    of sin, justification declares that all the claims of the law
    are satisfied in respect of the justified. It is the act of a
    judge and not of a sovereign. The law is not relaxed or set
    aside, but is declared to be fulfilled in the strictest sense;
    and so the person justified is declared to be entitled to all
    the advantages and rewards arising from perfect obedience to the
    law (Rom. 5:1-10).
      It proceeds on the imputing or crediting to the believer by
    God himself of the perfect righteousness, active and passive, of
    his Representative and Surety, Jesus Christ (Rom. 10:3-9).
    Justification is not the forgiveness of a man without
    righteousness, but a declaration that he possesses a
    righteousness which perfectly and for ever satisfies the law,
    namely, Christ's righteousness (2 Cor. 5:21; Rom. 4:6-8).
      The sole condition on which this righteousness is imputed or
    credited to the believer is faith in or on the Lord Jesus
    Christ. Faith is called a "condition," not because it possesses
    any merit, but only because it is the instrument, the only
    instrument by which the soul appropriates or apprehends Christ
    and his righteousness (Rom. 1:17; 3:25, 26; 4:20, 22; Phil.
    3:8-11; Gal. 2:16).
      The act of faith which thus secures our justification secures
    also at the same time our sanctification (q.v.); and thus the
    doctrine of justification by faith does not lead to
    licentiousness (Rom. 6:2-7). Good works, while not the ground,
    are the certain consequence of justification (6:14; 7:6). (See
    GALATIANS, EPISTLE TO.)
