The link below shows the symbol. I tried to paste the symbol itself but it would not let me. The character is a combination of two smaller ones: "I" or "me" and "lamb". The wo…rd "lamb" is the top portion of the symbol. Notice "lamb" is positioned over the pronoun. Righteousness = The lamb over me, or, God over me. http://www.catalystmin.org/china-aware-articles/2008/12/31/chinese-characters-reveal-christian-gospel.html (MORE)
Gods rightousness was manifested through Jesus Christ. Christ never sinned, he fulfilled the law of God. When we believe he died for our sins on the cross and that God raised …him from the dead the third day, God imputes Christ rightousness to us when we believe on Jesus. He died in our place taking the punishnent of death for our sins. See 1Cor 15:1-7, Romans 1:16 Romans 4:5, Romans 5:1, Romans 6:23 Ephesians 1:13 Ephesisans 2:8-9 (MORE)
Righteousness in its infinite entirety is an infinite spiritual power (say ISP)-- physics may call it a force of the forces; human rights doctrine may understand it as life of… all lives; and morality may call it the love of all loves; but religions, all religions indeed, as we know them are totally bankrupt to comprehend it -- of love in action and eternal truth of eternal knowledge by direct perception that has created everything around itself and is in everything that is created by it. Of every species that this ISP has created, only human it has created in its own image, with all its attributes. Human at the beginning of this creation was given a dual power of action: (i) to enjoy the external world with its physical organs taking its consciousness towards outside; and (ii) be at the eye centre behind the physical eyes (the eye of inner perception) and enjoy spiritual music within coming from its own infinite source not subject to any cause and consequence law. Great majority of mankind chose to enjoy the external world of sense organs that is subject to the law of cause and consequence. As a result we are caught up in the web of karma and reincarnation. The only way out is to get back first to the eye centre with the help of someone who has mastered this process and can put us in touch with that pristine music, the life of lives and the love of loves. This is the essence of spirituality and there are always few masters in this world that are always willing to help us in bringing us back to our origin. But the so-called religions and religious leaders of today are only known to sow seeds of hatred among humanity, hence have become more as political parties than the beacons of spirituality, though the essence of spirituality in the teachings of all religions is the same. Hence, a sincere seeker of pristine rigteousness would right above the inhuman and un-spiritual divisions of religions in finding a spiritual master and would lealize that religions were made for man and not man for the religions. If anything today's human righteousness, no matter how much sunken and polluted, springs from its own pristine spiritual righteousness. Law has regulated every aspect of life. It is the religions that need to be regulated. If not spiritual preaching, they must live up to the standards of human rights and respect for human dignity of human worldwide. They must be taxed like any institution. And, they must be issued license to preach only if they create unity among world's people and not strife. The moment they peach to divide them and anti-human rights sermons they must be deprived of their license to preach and be tried, like any ruler or ruled, for the crime against humanity. Unless such spiritual this awareness dawns upon humanity as a whole the intellectual human righteousness will go on stagnating. We need to realize that all lives in this visible as well as invisible universe are centered in one infinite life. We are not human beings but in the eternal sense spiritual beings going through human experience. And the extent of realization of human righteousness is directly proportional to how far we are from our center of pristine infinite spiritual-beingness. Realization has to dawn upon us that no matter how many million radii of human righteousness there are but they all, as a matter of course, would converge at their one common center of spirituality. In this sense, human righteousness can be perceived as a circle whose center is in individual human by and circumference somewhere; and the IPS is like a circle whose center is everywhere and circumference no where. This in all humility and sincere love for my all human fraternity, I think our human righteousness must lead to. Human rights preachers are more spiritual than the religions of today. Law has given enough to the religion, it is time that religion delivers to law, the pristine and eternal law, the LAW OF LOVE. When human heart would bleed at the suffering of any human being anywhere, the human righteousness is in touch with its spiritual righteousness. The crisis of the crises today is not political, economic, social or cultural; it is the crises of sunken human conscience: con+science, in conformity with science, eternal knowledge of eternal truth, the truth that never changes. Unless we are in touch with that we remain subject to the law of cause and consequence: no matter what we do to our fellow human beings, nay to all creatures, comes back upon us, somehow, someway, sometime, in full measure. Love begets love. (MORE)
Generosity affects righteousness because, well I think that in order to be generous, you would have to be righteous and holy and tight with God to know what He wants you to do…. You can read 2 Corinthians 9:6-15 for more over this topic. (MORE)
Righteousness by faith is the concept that without faith we would not be justified. When we have faith we considered righteous in the eyes of Christ. Romans 3:22-- This righte…ousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. (MORE)
