The Deceitfulness of Self-Righteousness

Pastor Doug Meadows
Text:  Romans 10:3

When you talk to the average churchgoer and inquire as to their reason for going to Heaven, they will tell you about their good works.  Most people hold the view that their good will outweigh their bad.  That, if they try to live a good life and are sincere, God will understand.  It is my objective to dispel such a notion; I would like to discuss the deceitfulness of self-righteousness.
