New Christians give up their worst sins and break fewer laws than they once did, but they are still attached to the world. Instead of judging themselves by the gospel they merely compare themselves with their former lives. If today is better than yesterday, they think this is enough to make them saints. If they can tell you the time and place of their salvation, they probably see nothing remaining to be done. Such people have a long way to go.
