But the son of God never supports self righteousness not now, not then

Meaning

Matthew 9:9-13
The Pharisees and Sadducees (Jewish religious rulers) considered themselves too holy and righteous to mingle with the publicans and sinners, who they considered to beneath them. Jesus told the leaders that his purpose was not geared towards the religious people, but towards the sinners.
