A Self-Righteous Spirit

“In general, a self-righteous spirit consists in a disposition to think more highly of ourselves than we ought to think; and so, it is pride. And it stands in opposition to humility, which is to think soberly of ourselves, and as we ought to think…and a self-righteous spirit arises from blindness to the divine glory, and ignorance of our true character and state, as they appear in the sight of God, and as they really are, compared with His holy law.
The spiritual knowledge of God and His law, and a view of ourselves in contrast with God and His law thus known, is the cure of a self-righteous spirit”.

Ibid, P. 120
