What is Active and passive righteousness?
(also called proper and alien righteousness) are the two kinds of Christian righteousness, which is a central distinction of Lutheranism. Kolb hints at it in chapter one in the two kinds of relationships (vertical and horizontal). Before God, we are right only passively as God makes us promises, gives us faith, and brings us to salvation totally apart from our works. This is called passive or alien righteousness. This passive righteousness is the only way in which we are right with God. This is not because we do anything but purely by works. At the same time, this passive righteousness leads into a life lived according to God’s will. We live out our faith actively through the power of the Holy Spirit in us. This is called active or proper righteousness. This is not how we are justified before God nor how we “get to heaven” but it is our response to God’s work in us. It is how we live in relationship to other people, and called to follow God’s commands. Active righteousness is thus the fruit of which passive righteousness is the tree.
