After finishing this subject some readers may still hold fast to their.religious ways.(John 10:26-29).or their other ways of being righteous with themselves:.Luke 18:9 "And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous and despised others.".It's precisely these kind of attitudes many children, men and women have been programmed to function throughout their lives with because of a seriously flawed educational system.(1, 2, 3).and have grown up ending up in a system of positions negatively affecting others.

Because of brainwashing.(a being deceived).and being deceived about it.(they would vehemently deny they are brainwashed because anyone deceived does not know that he has been).and because they have been programmed to fear loss, they refuse to acknowledge or willing blind their concerns, to serious issues affecting mankind, so that they can continue to carry on selfish concerns

Consider politicians and CEO's.(just as some examples).trained in most 'higher' 'educational'.doctrinal.(shall we say 'brainwashing').institutions in this regard. Too bad there are not more educators such as these.

Many religious men and women have been thoroughly programmed over many years with alternate teachings such as ten commandment keeping which bears their own righteousness: Ezekiel 33:12,13 "Therefore, you son of man, say unto the children of thy people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression. As for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turns from his wickedness, neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sins. When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live if he trust to his own righteousness and commit.(original is 'thus producing').iniquity.(or 'acting wrongly' as the original can also mean), all his righteousnesses will not be remembered, but for his iniquity that he has committed, he shall die for it.".Why? Because only in Him, only in Christ, with all that means, is life:.John 1:4; 14:6.

One's own righteousness can be some good, some not so good, but the emphasis on this here is the righteousness one has in a spiritual relationship with the Great Infinite One, the One out of whom came the Elohim. Here, some have their own laws, their own opinions that they abide by, their own preconceived.concepts and some think that these will be pleasing to God. One thing that pleases God is His righteousness in a person. Other things (*).

It is saying that one's righteousness cannot save him. Only Christ's righteousness.(Romans 3:22; 5:17,21; 1Corinthians 1:30; Philippians 1:11; 2Peter 1:1).can do that:.Genesis 15:6; James 2:23; Titus 3:5; 1Peter 2:24; James 3:18.(peace, with God). Some effort is required on our part. 

The Mosaic Law.(which involved works of the flesh towards obedience to God).which included the ten commandments, were part of the people's righteousness:.Deuteronomy 6:25.

Why it is important to study the Bible in this regard:.2Timothy 3:16. Since the time of Christ in the flesh, a Christian's work now is that of the Holy Spirit, the basis of which work is love. Love is the righteousness of the Holy Spirit, God's very nature:.1John 4:8,16.

Romans 9:28 "For he will finish the work.(original is 'word'; for the 'work', see John 17:4).and cut it short in righteousness, because a short work.(original is 'word').will the Lord make upon the earth."
   A more accurate translation is:."For he will finish the word.(finish the word of righteousness in us:.Ephesians 2:10), shortening it by righteousness.....", His gift of righteousness to us.(Romans 5:17).completes us:.Colossians 2:10. His word of righteousness in us completes us now. And He did finish it!
