    justification/vindication/exoneration

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to explain to me the plausibility of the following sentence?

    Justification is not vindication or exoneration.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    JUSTIFICATION denotes, primarily, that action in the law court whereby a judge upholds the case of one party in dispute before him. Having heard the case, the judge finds in favour of one party, and thereby ‘justifies’ him: if he finds for the defendant, this action has the force of ‘acquittal’. The person thus justified is described as ‘just’, ‘righteous’
    In Christian theology, justification is God's act of declaring or making a sinner righteous before God.
    Where as vindication or exoneration connote that a person is right all along (by evidence or argument, that serves to justify a deed), while the true facts might be hidden from the Judge or the person who is to justify.
