Someone should help out here.


This dictionary meaning is actually pointing to them being same as seen in the screenshot I added. But am confused about their usage; someone should help out.

Righteousness is a State brought about by what Jesus did for you;
Holiness is an Act, brought about by what you do for yourself;

When you are born of the water and of the Spirit, you now have Eternal Life in You,
Becoming a Son of God, you now have full access into the Father's Presence; a feat desired by all Angels and Spirit Beings (who can only enter the Father's presence when they are summoned),

Hence when you are righteous, you can approach God and commune with Him,

Holiness on the other hand, is when you consecrate yourself to the Lord, by starving your soul of inordinate desires until you begin to hate sinful practices altogether,

Hence, holiness comes by a continuous lifestyle of feeding your spirit with the words of eternal life and starving your soul of sinful pleasures and purposeless desires, until, having being starved of purposeless desires for so long, you can now easily resist temptations and wordly lusts.

Hence, first righteousness is a state by which we are now one with God,
And holiness is when we live in such a way that we are now like God, full of Light, Love and eternal Life.

I hope this helps.

In Summary:
According to your write-up

Yes bro,

Although the Apostles Paul and John taught righteousness differently,

John described righteousness as an act,
1 John 3:7
King James Version
"Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous."


While Paul described righteousness as an abstract state
2 Corinthians 5:21
New American Standard Bible
"He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him."


Just let the Ghost of Holies guide you into all Truth, so you can deeply understand the Love of God, and consequently, be filled with all the Fullness of God.

Shalom!
