Their own form of righteousness

When writing to the Church in Rome, Paul mentioned those who were “seeking to establish their own righteousness” (Romans 10:3).

In the book of Judges, before Israel's monarchy was established, the people of Israel were written of as doing what was “right in his own eyes” (Judges 17:6; 21:25).

When people think they are doing the right thing, they think of themselves as moral people.

The language of morality kicked into an unusually high gear on the Senate floor Monday.
