The Beatitudes have nothing to do with being a citizen of this fallen world. They define the requirements of being a citizen of heaven. They point out the spirit of the law, rather than the Pharisee's interpretation of the law. The beatitudes are impossible for man, in his fallen state, to live up to, hence the need for a Savior.
