I believe God is most likely talking about believers who are living a hypocrite life yes,they talk about God but their heart is far from him, they only give lip service.God is warning them to repent of the hypocrisy behavior before it 's too late.

I totally agree with it ' because I think the righteous ' the ones proclaiming to be righteous, and in God 's house should be judged first, although God already knows who we are, and he said in his word that he is coming back for the church, u And those that reject God, or reject the Good News of God, he too will be judge accordinaly '

When Peter said if it begins it begins with us, is he talking about the church or elders?

Greetings brethren.

I think Peter addressing the Jews, believers and non believers, talks about the house of God( the temple in Jerusalem). The temple was destroyed about 10 years later.hence, he wasn't contradicting our standing after salvation.
