Product Description

Who Are We to Judge?



We have met the Pharisees, and they are...us. That\'s because we are all slaves to self-righteousness and judgmentalism. It\'s built into human nature. We set "the standard"--the list of do\'s and don\'ts--to which others must adhere. Then we associate this predetermined behavior with righteousness and declare, "A \'Christian\' wouldn\'t do that."



In this book, John Fischer points out that Jesus defined the truth in such a way as to leave no one righteous--not one. We cannot be made right before God by being "better" than anyone else. Instead, by recognizing and laying aside the Pharisee in all of us, we can embrace the grace, gratitude, and joy of the spirit-filled life.
