Self-Righteousness: A Silent Killer

It is easy to read the end of Romans 1 and think, "Yeah, go those ungodly and wicked people, Paul!"  And then you turn to Romans 2. In Romans 2 Paul goes after the self-righteous person who is equally defiant to the gospel.  Self-righteousness is dangerous.  Deadly.  It is a silent killer because it leaves its suspect thinking they are righteous because of their externals all the while living with a dead heart inside.  We must reject a facade of righteousness of our own making and receive the righteousness of Christ that comes by faith.  This message serves as a "self-righteous detector" in our life to turn us to the righteousness found in the hope of the gospel.
