Many "salvation by grace" Christians seem to be quite prideful. I suspect that this might be borne from dichotomies of their theology such as:
1) They believe that sin is separation from God, yet they continue to sin whilst believing that professing belief that Jesus is their savior saves them from sin.
2) They take Jesus as their "Lord", yet they can hold two contrary beliefs to be true, because their theology dictates that they must.
It's always "christians this...christians that......" and always about other people and their faults. You talk about overcoming sin and Jesus etc etc but you won't talk about yourself and your own struggle with sin. You don't say how you practice Jesus being your Lord but see fit to focus everything outwardly at others whilst ignoring what's happening with yourself.
You are primarily a sniper at others without having the guts to reveal anything about yourself and whether you really live up to what you preach. You are not prepared to share your walk but see fit to talk the talk anyway when you have not earned the right. Now there's a real dichotomy! (or is it hypocrisy? )
You are so darned sure of your position (even though it's not a real position more of a snipe because you can't back it up with anything from your life) and what you are doing here is projecting what is within you on to others because you cannot own it yourself.
I actually think it is you who is compensating for an incoherent , fragile position because you just cannot deal with anything other than simplistic , polarised truths.
(BTW- Who are "they"? Just how many of the world's Christians have you actually met ? )
You teach what you most need to learn.
