Well, I do. I blame God, and He is now on trial.
Actually, justification not only includes God approving us according to His standard of righteousness. It also include us approving God according to His righteous nature. .
Justification is a mutual approving - God approves us the justified sinners and the we the saved approve God.
It is a mutual approving. It is a process in which God says to us "You have been justified as if you had never sinned at all." And we the forgiven in turn say (if we really know the word of God) " And we approve You God. We see now that there is no unrighteousness in You and in Your way."
