(J. C. Ryle)
“We have all become like one who is unclean, and all
our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment.
We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the
wind, take us away.” Isaiah 64:6
Beware of self-righteousness in every possible
shape and form. Some people get as much harm
from their ‘virtues’ as others do from their sins.
Oh, let us beware of self-righteousness! Open sin
kills its thousands of souls. Self-righteousness
kills its tens of thousands!
“There is none righteous, no, not one.” Romans 3:10
