I have realized something.

Are you sitting down?
Not everyone when confronted with God's Word will listen.
Not everyone who hears God's Word understands it.

Or wants to.

When their mode of life is compared to what God presents as a template, not everyone wants to change. It is easier to justify one's own way than to admit not being plumb to God's standard, and so change.

It is easier to make God like me, than for me to strive to be like God.

It is easier to look for dirt upon others, than to become clean.

It is easier to find the handful of "dirt" in the Scriptures, than to admit to the barrow-full of my own.

It is far, far easier to be like the world, than to change it.

It is far, far easier to be like the world, than to change myself.

It is infinitely easier to point to the strivers for good and say "Hypocrites" than to consider one's own insufficiency. And we are all insufficient.

It is easier to curse than to bless.
It is easier to divide than to reconcile.
It is easier to whine than to praise.

And it is easier to sleep than to keep this up.
I'm going to bed.

Hear hear.

I think you've pegged the core definition of "self-righteous" with this one.
