He then addressed this parable to those who were convinced of their own righteousness and despised everyone else.
“Two people went up to the temple area to pray; one was a tolerant man and the other was a promethean neopelagian.
The tolerant man took up his position and spoke this prayer to himself, ‘O God, I thank you that I am not like the rest of humanity—racist, homophobic, xenophobic—or even like this promethean neopelagian.
I’m #NeverTrump, and I give communion to adulterers.’
But the promethean neopelagian stood off at a distance and would not even raise his eyes to heaven but beat his breast and prayed, ‘O God, be merciful to me a sinner.’
I tell you, the latter went home justified, not the former; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”
