Luke 18:9-14 The tax collector, not the Pharisee, went home justified
We are privy to the pharisees inner world and so we’re able to see him as God sees him.
He’s using other people, people whom he views as beneath him, to make himself feel good but – and this is what makes it so much worse – he’s doing it by using the holy, by using the Ten Commandments, by using God.
So the ego remains unconverted and in fact the ego is converting (perverting) the holy to suit itself.
From the very beginning this perversion of the holy has been an ever present danger ⚠️ within Christianity – and too often a very real one.
And in the sight of God what he’s doing amounts to abusing the holy, abusing the Commandments and abusing God.
