There is none who does good, No not one. Psalm 53
I‘ve heard people take this out of context many times. This verse in Psalm 53 is not talking about the believer in Christ. Every born again believer is NOW the righteousness of God. Psalm 53 is talking to the fool who in his heart says there is no God. They are corrupt and have done abominable iniquity. God looks down from heaven to see if there are any who understand or any who are seeking God. Every one of the people who say there is no God has turned away. There is not one of them that do good! Then the scripture goes on to say in verse 4. Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? (talking about people who say there is no God). Who eat up MY PEOPLE as they eat bread? And they do not call upon God? These verses all are talking about the people who say that there is NO GOD. There are none of these who do good, no not one of them!
Every born again believer is good; you are the righteousness of God now. You are a new creation!
We are not like filthy rags anymore, but we are to consider ourselves dead to our sins. We consider ourselves alive unto God through Jesus Christ and He is righteous. Romans 6:11
