I’m not against transparency and sharing our failures with others; we need that. Confession is a beautiful part of the Christian life; the gospel does free us to admit we “don’t got this.” It’s just that our tendency is to confess things to people because we want them to fix us with law, rather than sharing our struggles to hear the one thing that makes a hill of beans to sinners.

The thing is, we really do think that the law has the power to keep us in line. We look at other people who are screwing it all up (probably in the same ways that we are) and we grab the law, ball it up like a pair of dirty socks, and just lob it at them.
When it doesn’t work, we get flustered at them. Really flustered. We come up with a list of the reasons *cough* judgments *cough* why they refuse to just do the right thing like we told them to. We conveniently fail to remember that this approach never works on us either, but we are really into that whole self-righteous disillusionment thing.
