If you claim that you’re a good person, then you’re simply affirming what the Bible says…
“Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts.”
“All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.”
“There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”
“There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.”
“For though thou wash thee with nitre, and take thee much soap, yet thine iniquity is marked before me,
saith the Lord GOD.”
(1 Samuel 16:7)
“But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature;
because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward
appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.”
“And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous,
and despised others:
Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.
The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are,
extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.”
“And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts:
for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.”
SO, ARE YOU REALLY A GOOD PERSON?
The Simple Truth?…
Of course you are, but not really.
