It is an agreed fact that nobody is born a saint we are born out of sin as posited by David in psalms 51. However is it a license for we all to glory in our respective sins and continue to wallow therein?
It is so pathetic that most people have misconstrue the assertion – nobody is righteous, which is causing a lot of damages to the Christian body and the society, Making it difficult to see people do the right thing just because everybody believes nobody is righteous.
Romans 3:10 posits As it is written “there is no one righteous, not even one”. This verse is not intended by the writer to be used as a defence for people wallowing in sin or people who can’t call to order people wallowing in sin, however Apostle Paul used the verse to demonstrate that both Jews and Greek alike are under sin and none of of them is righteous.
So many of us have found ourselves in situation where we ought to speak the truth, act justly but we’ve refused to do so simply because we believe NOBODY IS PERFECT. How long do we continue in sin and expect the grace to abide?
JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE RIGHTEOUS DOESN’T MEAN YOU SHOULDN’T STAND FOR WHAT IS RIGHT.
