Erlösung vom selbstgerechten Selbst, nicht nur vom sündigen Selbst

M‎an must be a new creature, and converted from his own righteousness to the righteousness of ‎the Lord Jesus Christ; conviction will always precede spiritual conversion: and therefore the ‎Protestant divines make this distinction, you may be convinced and not converted, but you cannot ‎be converted without being convinced; and if we are truly converted we shall not only be turned and ‎converted from sinful self, but we shall be converted from righteous self; that is the devil of devils: for ‎righteous self can run and hide itself in its own doings, which is the reason self-righteous people are so ‎angry with gospel preachers…

Aus: George Whitefield. Repentence and Conversion.
