Religion says, “Our righteousness is as filthy rags!” Faith says, “I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus!”
Religion is under condemnation. It is sin conscience. Therefore it is always aware of its weaknesses and sins.
Religion is still under the Law of Moses that demanded you be perfect in your actions, in your heart and in your behavior.
Because man still has his flesh to contend with, he falls short on a daily basis. Religion listens to the devil’s accusations and comes under condemnation causing them to feel unworthy of God. Religion gets its identity from the flesh, therefore it feels unworthy of God.
On the other hand, faith understands that we have been given Jesus’ righteousness as a free gift when we believe the gospel. Therefore we are righteous and acceptable to God our Father. Faith gets its identity through our new born-again spirit that is perfect in the sight of God. Therefore faith is free from all condemnation and boldly puts on the Lord Jesus Christ and walks with God with a righteousness conscience.
