Church people are generally pharisees. They like gloating rather than rebuking or reproving.

[10] Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.

[11] The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. [12] I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. [13] And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. [14] I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

— KJV, Luke 18:10-14

The pharisee is self righteous, similarly to gloating.

The pharisees rebuke Jesus for eating with publicans and sinners.

[11] And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?

[12] But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. [13] But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

— KJV, Matthew 9:11-13

Jesus calls them vipers.

But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? — KJV, Matthew 3:7
