"A Person may continually confess how wrong his flesh or natural life is and yet all the while cherish his thoughts and opinions. Though he admits his weakness with his mouth, in his heart he is still full of his own thoughts and cleverness. He considers his view to be superior to that of others and his way to be better than that of others. These are people whose lips are full of God's will, but in actuality they know little of it." (Watchman Nee - "The Messenger of the Cross".
