Holier Than Thou
Have you ever met the, "Holier than Thou" Christians, or shall we say the, "Self-righteous"? They believe that they are far superior to others! They feel more moral, they judge according to the outward appearance of another Christian, and of course unlike our precious JESUS do not know the inside, the heart of a person!
We read in Isaiah 65:5, "Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am Holier than thou. These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burneth all the day." I can remember when I was a very young Minister, a large Christian man coming up to me in a Church gathering and saying, "Oh you are the famous Rev. Milton, when was the last time you cried before the Lord? I have been a Church member for years!" The Pastor of the Church overheard him, and came up to me and said, "Don't take any notice of him; he is like that with everyone!" Isaiah was prophesying about people like that!
Don't take any notice of "Holier than Thou", people, there are plenty of them about. Sometimes they know a little bit of truth about you, that is now under The Blood (1 John 1:9) and continue to add, and gossip about you regardless!! Believe me, I could write a book about them. In God's word we read concerning the women that committed adultery, and the people took her to JESUS, to stone her! But JESUS said, "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her." John 8:7. "And they which heard it, BEING CONVICTED BY THEIR OWN CONSCIENCE, WENT OUT ONE BY ONE..." John 8:9.
Pray for these Self righteous Christians, that they might find the true LOVE of JESUS in their HEARTS, and that it will show in the way they act and treat others!
