I come across many blogs and articles where people throw out scripture verses on “righteousness.”
I used to know what that means, but after many years away from having to prove or proclaim my righteousness and faith to. . .God and Everyone Else, I guess. . .I’m a bit confused here.
Does being “righteous” mean you are Right all the time? Or just “spiritually” right? Whatever that means.
If so, are the Great Spiritual Teachers of the World our Models of Righteousness?
If so, does that mean they are the Ultimate Models of SELF Righteousness?
“Look at My life, how I live, and you’ll see how YOU are supposed to live.” “I am closer to God than you.” “I know more about God than you.” “I know the Way, follow Me.” “If you want to know Anything about God, Truth, Life. . .come to ME, I’ll show you.”
These questions keep bubbling up. Do you have a helpful response?
On a happy note, I read a Lutheran pastor’s blog that said her church is one of the “Religious LEFT” (you know, instead of the Religious RIGHT).
I kinda like that.
And, I should say,
I do like the Righteous Brothers
