Our whole motive becomes a desire for attestation (self-righteous suffering). We want people to see our achievements. and be put to shame. Our asceticism it now has become the way to salvation. (However, that is not salvation which gets you to heaven where God resides, rather it does the opposite focussing on oneself-Darren Beattie).”-Dietrich Bonhoeffer
