When Christ walked this earth there were two kinds of people with whom he interacted. There were the sinners who knew that they were sinners. These are the people who liked Christ’s message because it was clear their sins would be taken away in Him. Christ also dealt with the pharisees. These were the people who were righteous and in a position to judge Christ’s work. When Christ speaks of the prodigal son who recklessly spent his father’s inheritance, how does this son show the folly of sin and the folly of righteousness?
