Self Justification Equals Self Deception
I really admire Job's sense of unworthiness here. I believe it is a positive attribute. I think it is important for people to know that they are sinners, and that their only hope of justification is through the atoning blood and the merits of Christ. To become blinded to this fact is a fatal error.
I have encountered individuals that claimed they they were in no need of forgiveness for their sins, because they didn't do anything wrong. This is a self-deceptive lie (1 Jn. 1:8). No one is perfect; and we have all sinned and need divine pardon.
