WHY GOD DOESN'T CALL THE "RIGHTEOUS" RIGHTEOUS

"I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance." (Luke 5:32)
At a casual glance, this above scripture passage may seem to 'imply' that some people need repentance and some don't ' BUT THEY WOULD BE WRONG.
We are ALL born with a sin nature, as scripture
states, and we ALL need to acknowledge we are sinners to God
and practice repentance: Sincerely asking
His forgiveness for our sins; trust He forgives them (which can be difficult for
some at first) for what Jesus did on the cross, and THEN seriously try to stop
sinning, with the help of His Spirit of course. In fact, it's the
God will accept us into heaven ' admitting to Him and ourselves we are
sinners in need of a merciful, forgiving Savior who will forgive us of our sins!
Only truly humble people admit they are sinners. Prideful people see no need to admit they are sinners. In fact, it's insulting to them! God calls people like this: Self-righteous. These are people who consider themselves 'Okay' with God just the way they are. They see themselves SOooooooo 'okay' with God that they have decided to take their chances on the Judgment Day by trusting in their own self-righteousness ' their own 'goodness' - and rationalize that only weak-minded people ' societies' misfits ' bad people; criminal types of various sorts ' need to admit they are sinners and ask Jesus forgiveness for their sins.
God has clearly recorded in the Bible what HE thinks of our self-righteousness:
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one. (Romans 3:10 KJV).
If everyone is not righteous enough to meet God's demands of 'Be ye holy as I am holy,' then how can ANY of us become holy - righteous enough - to please God?

Dear Reader - are you at peace with God? If not, you can be. Do you know what awaits you when you die? You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain. Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!). Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God? We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake.
To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God.
