I have a question for the board:
Is this an example of those who believe that their performance will give them some sort of "right standing" with the Lord, or those who believe their self righteousness will give them a right standing with the Lord?
1 John 1:7----King James Version
7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
IOW--is one practicing "self righteousness" if they believe walking in His light--will result in the Blood of Jesus Christ --unto the "cleanseth us from all sin."
