The Pharisee

What is the motive behind men who say to the preacher: “you need to preach more of man’s responsibility”. Are they truly concerned about how other men live? I think not. Are they sincerely wanting to know how they should live? No, they already know that. They are wanting their own lives validated. They want their own righteousness affirmed. It’s not that they need to know how to live. It’s that they want others to know how they live. “God, I thank thee that I am not as other men”. Lk 18:11.
