MAN'S VS GOD'S RIGHTEOUSNESS
Some people think that there is difference between committing sin KNOWINGLY AND UNKNOWINGLY.
On this note people have been mislead on the principles that you should not sin intentionally.
The truth is whether you sin willingly or unwillingly before GOD you have sinned.
There is this group of Christians who think that the fact that they are in church , even though they sin they are different from other sinners outside the church.
They have categorized sin. If you sin in church it is different as sinning outside church.
No matter where you are in church or outside , the bible does not change what it says concerning sin, 1 John 3:88 says He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning....WE have all sinned. there is no difference and the fact is we have all separated from the glory of God through SIN. No matter how many times you repent the verse of Romans 3;23 still applies to you. That you have sinned and fall short of glory of God. even if you roll 100 times on the ground , pray on the highest hill in your village or the driest part in your area the verse remains the same; YOU HAVE SINNED AND FALL SHORT OF GLORY OF GOD. what this means is that God wants us to realize there is nothing we can do for our salvation. those who think when they sin, then if they ask God to forgive them they will be forgiven are also referred in this verse. True repentance is the act of realizing your true image, that you can only sin no matter how hard you try. This is where you make an about turn from your own ways of seeking righteousness to the ways of God's righteousness. Man's righteousness ends in ROMANS 3;23...God's righteousness begins in the verse just below it.
ROMANS 3; 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.......THIS is not righteousness of trying to show your spiritual principles, this is the righteousness of Grace. GIVEN TO EVIL PEOPLE LIKE ME AND YOU WHO COULD ONLY PERISH IN HELL. JOHN 3;16. IT IS RIGHTEOUSNESS OF FAITH.
ROMANS 1;17 For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last,[e] just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”[f]........the JUST are people are people who cannot be judged and one only become Just by believing in the Works of JESUS ON THE CROSS.
HE TOOK MY SIN AND EXCHANGED IT WITH HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS. 2 CORINTHIANS 5;21....
