Why Do Men Love Pietistic Perfectionism?

     Why do sinful men tend to love pietistic perfectionism? Deep inside they know full well, they cannot comply with the demands of the Sermon on Mount, nor even with the "marks of true conversion" of Paul Washer, yet they love the masochism of self-flagellation...being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. (Rom 10:4)
