The self righteous are invariably those who are anything but righteous - they are self focused, and in our opinion this is not right. The arrogance of the self righteous is symptomatic of spiritual immaturity, where superficial actions are taken to stand for what should be spiritual depth. Rather than empathize with others they chose to stand apart. Rather than muddy their hands and feet they walk the safe, clean path. Do they think the higher spiritual realms are attained by avoidance and clean hands?
