Inherent Righteousness for Temporal Life

‘That there is a certain inherent righteousness in us is admitted; that this also adorns the soul and renders it beautiful, no one denies; but we assert, with Augustine, that this righteousness is bestowed on the regenerate, in order that by it they may live righteously and wisely among men; not that by it they may stand absolutely justified before God.’
— John Davenant, A Treatise on Justification
