Tormented Souls

Man is addicted to the notion of earning his own salvation by the works that he thinks he can do.

However, these same sinners who think they can perform to an acceptable level to the god of their imagination vehemently hate any preacher of righteousness or holiness.


Preachers of righteousness or holy works are a torment to their conscience.

"Anyone who believes that our relationship with God is based on keeping up moral behavior is on an endless treadmill of guilt and insecurity."
