The parable of the tolerant man and the promethean neopelagian

Tradition, Authority, Reason

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.”
