@Don
To be honest I posted this scripture only because it was what was on the wall of my old church over the pulpit.

To me it meant when we entered into the church we were righteous while hearing the word of the Lord and during that time we were totally safe! While at church! lol!

The burden to be righteous all the time is overwhelming and impossible.

The objective is to keep trying to do the right thing! This includes you :)

The very definition of righteous, Always behaving according to a religious or moral code~ is daunting!!

But that's where the other scriptures come in!!

Here's where we've sinned.

Rom.3:23 For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God
Eccl.7:20 Not a just man on earth, that...sinneth not
Isa.64:6 All our righteousnesses are as filthy rags
Rom.3:10 There is none righteous, no not one
1Jn.1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves.

But then we're saved!!!

Jn.3:16 Whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life
Jn.11:25,26 I am the resurrection and the life...whosoever believeth in Me shall never die
Acts 16:31 Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved
Rom.10:9,10 If thoushalt...believe in thine heart...thou shalt be saved
1Jn.5:1a Whosoever believeth Jesus is the Christ is born of God

Just believe! It all balances out in the end ;)

I hope this helps! *hugs*
