Self Righteousness = Self absorption + Self congratulating

Self-righteousness is the combination of thinking of yourself too much and thinking too highly of yourself. It is putting your thoughts on your self perceived 'goodness' and how you think this 'goodness' merits you something. Self-righteousness is anti Gospel. Self-righteousness is anti Jesus.

"Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. 4Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. 5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross."

Philippians 2:3-8
