A case that borders on our discussion occurs with Paul according to the book of Timothy. Paul calls himself the "foremost" of sinners (1 Tim 1:15), but he nevertheless defends his integrity, as do Jeremiah and the psalmists, when he says "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith" (1 Tim 4:7).
He then read from Amos and the first book of Timothy and spoke on the words of warning given to Israelites.
