Its all for fakers[edit]

"Righteousness ... In one sense, it is an attribute of God whereby He is said to be holy and righteous." "...In another sense it refers to the righteousness of man"

The article basically says "righteousness is righteousness." This gives absolutely no useful information to the reader.


"Righteousness ... In one sense, it is an attribute of God whereby He is said to be holy and righteous." "...In another sense it refers to the righteousness of women"

The article basically says "righteousness is righteousness." This gives absolutely no useful information to the reader. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 160.147.208.150 (talk) 15:26, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

Sola gratia[edit]

The article should explain the link between righteousness and divine grace ; there is an impressive demonstration given in the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification. ADM (talk) 13:01, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

Righteousness in Hinduism[edit]

This is an important term in Hinduism, too (and in Buddhism). http://www.radiosai.org/pages/thought.asp, for example here:

"19th November 2009 Ladies Day Thought for the day What we have to safeguard and protect today are Truth and Righteousness and not the nation. When Truth and Righteousness are protected, they will protect the nation. Hence, righteousness should be fostered in every home............"

One can build a little section for the article's page.
