LOGIZOMAI: passive or active?

It seems that LOGIZOMAI is used both with passive (Rom 4.3-4) and active 
meaning (1Cor 5.9). How is it possible?

Especially I wonder whether the LXX translation (quoted in Rom 4.3) of Gen
15:6 has made the active statement of the original into the passive
statement. In the original, it says "Abraham believed in the Lord. He
counted it to him as righteousness".
