To be unjust and righteous still seems to relate to the time prior to the revelation of Christ. The unjust are unjust (do wrong) as they shut up the kingdom of heaven in tribulation. And although the elect were a part of babylon, they were righteous in Christ and will continue to be righteous even to the point of redemption from Babylon?
