Could you add in romans.8:1 "made righteous" either just before "in Christ" or after "in Christ" and if it is doctrinally heresy, then why? I mean that how do you get to be "in Christ" if you are not first be made righteous? Or is "in Christ" same as "to make righteous( justified, saved)"?

Yes you could add "made righteous" to "in Christ" but, first of all, the text doesn't say that, and secondly, that would be redundant since the term "in Christ" is the most complete description of salvation, it encompasses the full spectrum of all that God has in store for His saints Colossians 2:9 - 10 "For in him [in Christ] dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. and ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power" So if you want to add "made righteous" or justified, you should also add sanctified, redeemed, reconciled, saved, glorified... and we could keep going on or we could just simply say, in Christ and there's no need to say anything else.
