A curious, what do you think?
« on: December 05, 2019, 09:25:12 am »
In my studies this AM I came across a curious verse....I Timothy 6:11 says....11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

The curious thing to me is that both righteousness and godliness are listed...what is the difference between the two? In my mind the rest of the verse is self explanatory so please don't get hung up on trying to explain to me something that is not being asked.

Interesting, as I kind of equate the two. That is a case for studying the original Hebrew and Greek from the earliest manuscripts. I personally don't think that I can achieve godliness OR righteousness here on earth. I may have times and moments when my heart is pure and I am acting righteously and godly but not 100% of the time. I'm only righteous in God's eyes because of Jesus Christ.

A study of the Bible shows: "Righteousness =  integrity, virtue, purity of life, uprightness, correctness in thinking, feeling, and acting in the following passages: Matthew 3:15; Matthew 5:6, 10, 20; Matthew 6:1 G L T Tr WH; Acts 13:10; Acts 24:25; Romans 6:13, 16, 18-20"  (1) Thayers Greek Lexicon

tomorrow....godliness

1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."

Yep I found that too....what I am currently thinking as I wait for Brian to do a more in depth word study is that righteousness is our standing, thus is more of an inward focus whereas Godliness is about being in awe and fear of God thus a more outward focus.
