Christian competition WHY?

I am more approved in the Lord's eyes than you," divides the Body of Christ and gives non-believers a negative opinion of the Christian faith. Few people would ever openly say, "I'm a better Christian than you." It is through their beliefs and deeds that they proclaim their above you attitudes.

People who hold to an "I'm a better Christian than you" mindset can always find Scripture that will support their thoughts. What they need to do is examine their rationale for holding to this view. If their offering of correction is not sparked from love, then one can only conclude vanity is their only motivation.

Philippians 2:2-3: "Fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself."
