Sproul on Christian Perfectionism

"Do you realize what a person has to do to convince themselves that they are at that state. They have to either vastly exaggerate their own performance of obedience, or... incredibly diminish the requirements of God's law... and in most cases its both.

We adjust the bar to our own performance and we have to live the rest of our life in denial of our sinfulness. It's deadly."
-R.C. Sproul
