God judges men from the inside out; men judge men from the outside in. Perhaps to God, an extreme mental patient is doing quite well in going a month without murder, for he fought his chemical imbalance and succeeded; oppositely, perhaps the healthy, able and stable man who has never murdered in his life yet went a lifetime consciously, willingly never loving anyone but himself may then be subject to harsher judgment than the extreme mental patient. It might be so that God will stand for the weak and question the strong.
The theistic philosopher has a tendency to devalue insufficient worldviews, ideologies, and quite often common sense for the greater good, and in such cases, one should not be discouraged when seen as a bad guy.

God favors men and women who delight in being made worthy of happiness before the happiness itself.

(Thinking while being interrogated by the Germans) You big shots think you can decide on my life, but I have news for you: you can't touch a hair on my head without the will of God my Father, because He is on my side.
Redemption is the work of the righteous God.
The righteous God is always right.
Redemption lies in the hands of a righteous God.
Of course, in our train of thought, we would all like to think we're on the right track, or at least the same railroad company as the right track.
Aye me, how many perils do enfold The righteous man, to make him daily fall? Were not, that heavenly grace doth him uphold, And steadfast truth acquite him out of all.
If you boil it down, just because someone else does the wrong thing we are not exempt from doing what’s right.
Righteous faith is to do what is right.
The righteous will claim sole domain on judgement. The righteous are the first to make hands into fists, the first to shout down dissenters, the first to bully others into compliance.
The best of knowledge and righteous acts are those hidden to the people.
The gods behold all righteous actions.
All men's souls are immortal, but the souls of the righteous are immortal and divine.
