Paul writing to the Philippians, says about his self-righteousness: “I count it but (he used a very crude Greek backstreet word, the Anglo Saxon equivalent of which is) shit.” That is what he thought of his self-righteousness. Like a little boy holding up his potty and saying, “look what I’ve done”.
