JESUS CHRIST – ORTHODOXY
What does it mean to be a righteous person?
“My brothers, I have fulfilled my duty to God in all good conscience to this day” (Acts 23:1)
Living by ones conscience entails listening to ones conscience; and listening to ones conscience means that one chooses to make the right decisions based upon their moral values and core beliefs. Therefore, acting in accordance to God’s Commandments and striving to overcome sin is the very definition of what it means to be righteous.
