The Folly of Perfectionism

Fr. Dwight Longeneker has written a great post on his blog     
Standing on My Head.
 He writes,
[Perfectionism] is a heresy because it is a form of salvation by good works. It turns religion into a set of table manners. It tames Aslan. It confines the Holy Spirit and reduces the vital and radical religion of Jesus Christ to a code of ethics for respectable people.

Note: By "good works" Father means works alone as opposed to faith and works.
