IS JUSTIFICATION THE SAME AS JUST-AS-IF-I-HAD-NEVER-SINNED?

I could be a few decades off, but I suspect that the just-as-if-I-had-never-sinned teaching originated in the fifties or early sixties. I know that I first heard the expression in the early sixties, and it was shortly after I first heard it that tracts appeared, in the church tract rack, that spoke out against the teaching. For many years, I heard nothing more about it.
