    What makes on "righteous", or what makes one "good"...?

    And if you are righteous or good, what makes you so...?

    And, what makes you so different from those who are not or what are those differences...?

    And, then, is it in any due to you, or your choices, or your actions, or your decisions, or "whatever", or is it in any way due to you at all, IOW's...?

    Comments...?

    God Bless!

    Matthew 25:37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

    40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

    According to Scripture, every one is judge for their deeds from all their life.
    Is someone raised without TORAH
    does what is right without TORAH,
    they are justified, according to Scripture;
    if someone with TORAH,
    does not do what is right according to TORAH,
    they are UNjustified,
    according to Yahweh's Word, Plan and Purpose.

    Does "your doing that", make you that (righteous, good, ect)...?

    In that passage, none of those who are said to righteous in it, do not seem to be keeping any kind of account of their good deeds or seem to be aware of their doing this at all, it was just what they did, or how they are, or how they were made, and does not seem to be any way due to them at all, basically...

    So, is it or isn't it in any way due to them...? Their being righteous or good or how they were, or their doing those things that made them that (righteous, good, holy) that Jesus said...?

    God Bless!

    Well, that is said to be the beginning or wisdom, cause I don't know either, (if it, or anything (that we are, or were, or become, ect) is in any way whatsoever due to us at all or not) and am trying to find out...?

    If our will is any way involved or plays a part at all or not, ect...?

    Or is our will just and "illusion" (or delusion) IOW's...?

    God Bless!

    I'm not worried about being righteous. All the wrong people were the ones asking Jesus how to be righteous.

    I'm letting Jesus handle "righteous" while I concern myself with being obedient.

    If your obedient then you are considered righteous, but that righteousness or obedience includes taking a righteous stand sometimes, otherwise it is disobedience... Must use careful discernment though...

    And does that obedience come from you or your own will, or is it entirely Gods' will that is sanctifying you or causing you to be obedient...?

    Who's responsible for your obedience IOW's...? Or "anything" about any of us, or who or what we are, or become at all, ect (holy, just, good, righteous, obedient, or "whatever")... Who gets the credit...? (or blame)...

    God Bless!

    I would say that we must cooperate with the Will of God. He wills, enables, calls, and makes possible our salvation, He does all this, but we must respond to Him with our will, hearts, thoughts, and might.

    He gets all the credit, yet also works through us to save us, and to save others. It is two things at once. He gives us life and helps us to walk, but we must move our legs.

    I think it sort of looks like this;

    Good deeds go on your 'account' as righteousness.

    We get the credit.
    God gets the glory.

    The problem is, if it is in any way due to us, he does not get all the credit, not all of it...

    Who is responsible for those deeds...? Or good or righteous acts, or "whatever"...?

    Who gets the credit, or else, "blame"...?

    God Bless!

    Well, we acknowledge that we have cooperated with His Will, but with His help. Kind of like a Mother helping her Baby learn to walk. The mother gave her child life, nourishment, love, and encouragement, is holding the baby up, and all the baby has to do is move his little legs, that she gave him. Does that make sense?

    It makes sense, but God is no mere human, or no mere human parent... and for the things we are talking about here, I think "all the credit" should rightfully go to that God...

    And if it does not, what does that mean...? (and also, or else also, if it does)...?

    God Bless!
