The Infinite Merit of Christ: The Glory of Christ’s Obedience in the Theology of Jonathan Edwards | The Evangelical Theological Society

Here is an excerpt:

God is infinitely excellent, and that excellence is most profoundly displayed in the person and saving work of Jesus Christ. The heart of Edwards’ theology radiates the glory of God as displayed in Christ saving unworthy sinners through perfect obedience to God’s unchanging rule of righteousness. The whole of Edwards’ theology stands on the beauty and redemptive work of Christ as revealing and communicating the marvelous perfections of the Trinity. Salvation of a single soul apart from perfect conformity to God’s rule of righteousness would render God unrighteous and abolish His ultimate purpose to display and communicate His glory. Indeed, God could not be God. Revisionist interpretations of Edwards’ soteriology as inclusive or Catholic, therefore, are untenable without an overthrow and rewrite of the entirety of Edwards’ theology.
