Adam’s Merit vs. Christ’s Merit

“Whereas Adam’s obedience was meritorious by virtue of God’s gracious terms alone, Christ’s obedience was infinitely meritorious of itself by virtue of Christ’s voluntarily undertaking the role of Mediator, as perfectly fulfilling all laws, as performed by one of infinite dignity and worth, as an infinite condescension to infinite suffering on behalf of infinitely unworthy sinners.”

-Craig Biehl, from his Infinite Merit of Christ, p.165
