TESTIMONY OF A MAN WHO’S RIGHTEOUSNESS UNDER LAW WAS FAULTLESS.
(Php 3:4b) If anyone else thinks he has reasons to put confidence in the flesh, I have more:
(Php 3:5) circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; in regard to the law, a Pharisee;
(Php 3:6) as for zeal, persecuting the church; as for LEGALISTIC RIGHTEOUSNESS, FAULTLESS.
(Php 3:7) But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.
(Php 3:8) What is more, I CONSIDER EVERYTHING A LOSS COMPARED TO THE SURPASSING GREATNESS OF KNOWING CHRIST JESUS MY LORD, for whose sake I have lost all things. I CONSIDER THEM RUBBISH, that I may gain Christ
(Php 3:9) and be found in him, NOT HAVING A RIGHTEOUSNESS OF MY OWN THAT COMES FROM THE LAW, BUT THAT WHICH IS THROUGH FAITH IN CHRIST—the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith.
