What does it mean to be Righteous?


Can a person truly be righteous by their own works or is it a "God Thing"? I have met people who seem to believe that if one gives to charity or other good works that is a form of righteousness. What do you think and why?

    That verse was recently the subject matter of a Bible study I am involved in, and it is one of the reasons I ask this question. By the way, I know Atheist that consider themselves righteous because of their good works.
